Verizon gains FedRAMP ATO for cloud services

Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ cloud-computing platform has received Authority to Operate from the Department of Health and Human Services under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).

Verizon’s Enterprise Cloud Federal Edition (ECFE) is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution, supported by an enterprise-class computing architecture that  features virtualization technology from VMware, and compute and network infrastructure from Cisco and NetApp.

ECFE is delivered from cloud-enabled data centers in Culpepper, Va., and Miami, where core infrastructure components are shared by government customers.  The service is a available in multitenant and dedicated configurations, and addresses the stringent security, reliability and flexibility requirements of federal agencies and their mission-critical workloads, Verizon said.

ECFE gives government customers the ability to provision virtual servers, storage, virtual load balancers and virtual firewalls in deploying their specific applications.

“Verizon operates one of the most mature and secure enterprise-class cloud-computing platforms used today by U.S. federal government agencies,” said Michael Maiorana, senior vice president of public sector markets, Verizon Enterprise Solutions.

“We are seeing accelerating interest in cloud computing across our public sector business,” Maiorana added, “and achieving FedRAMP authorization underscores our commitment to providing reliable, flexible and high-performance on-demand computing solutions that enable the business of government.”

Verizon’s ECFE is the ninth ATO-approved cloud service provider.
