Another Microsoft cloud service has been granted a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program Authority of Operate.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development issued the ATO and will be using the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online Government cloud. That service, according to Microsoft, ensures agencies can work from an array of devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops through a single sign-on.
The FedRAMP ATO means other government agencies and organizations can leverage HUD's efforts and customize their own business applications within the Dynamics CRM Online Government cloud.
According to an Aug. 8 tweet from FedRAMP Director Matt Goodrich, MaaS360 -- a mobile device management service from the IBM-owned company Fiberlink -- has also been given the FedRAMP seal of approval. MaaS360's ATO came via the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board.
There are now 46 cloud service providers that have been declared FedRAMP compliant.
