Update on FISMA Compliant Cloud Offering for Microsoft

White HouseEarlier this year Microsoft Corporation contracted with Layered Tech to provide “Microsoft Dynamics for Government – Hosted by Layered Tech”; a FISMA compliant cloud offering for their Dynamics solutions.

Hosted by Layered Tech in top-tier data centers, Microsoft Dynamics Government Cloud business solutions provide any federal agency the opportunity to:

  • Modernize mission critical workloads in either a FISMA-compliant, single-tenant private cloud with dedicated physical resources, or a FISMA-compliant, federal-only community cloud.
  • Sharply reduce the Certification & Accreditation time for new services by leveraging platform certification documentation developed by Layered Tech.
  • Partner with Layered Tech’s security professionals during the NIST (National Institute of Science and Technology) audit process through to Authorization to Operate (ATO).

On November 15th, Microsoft issued their press release on this joint offering.  We have been working in partnership at product launch events, conferences, and now engaging their sales teams on a road show to further educate the 90 federal partners and 200 Microsoft federal employees to advocate our joint offering.  This partnership will allow Layered Tech to keep in step with the government’s intensifying need for the benefits of business solutions delivered through secure cloud computing.

The relationship between Microsoft and LT Government Solutions (formerly NEW WORLD APPS) spans four years and I’ve been fortunate to be involved from the beginning.  We have over 60 ISVs and SIs that we have architected cloud solutions and assisted in the marketing and sales of those productized offerings.  As the leader of the initiative, I am very proud of the joint contribution of both the Microsoft and Layered Tech executive, marketing and BD teams.
