- Why Us
With the recent emphasis on making federal IT operations more efficient, managed hosting services hold considerable appeal to federal agencies. But federal agencies migrating to hosting services must do so in a way that keeps their IT workloads FISMA compliant. The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) defines how federal agencies and their contractors must provide for the security of their data and IT systems.
For many federal agencies, building and maintaining FISMA compliant IT solutions requires substantial investments of time, money and resources. Outsourcing agency applications to vendors with FISMA compliant platforms and processes is often the most cost-effective route to lowering IT security risks while reducing spending on infrastructure, implementation and maintenance.
For SaaS vendors marketing their services to the federal government, achieving and maintaining FISMA compliance is a formidable challenge. The FISMA security certification and accreditation (C&A) process for solution providers is complicated, time-consuming and costly, as is the requirement for annual review and reporting.
For independent software vendors, systems integrators, and value-added resellers targeting the federal sector, the most efficient way to design and implement your product is to leverage an experienced managed hosting provider's tools, expertise, and existing FISMA compliant data center infrastructure. Shifting the duties of FISMA compliance to proven hosting provider not only expedites the process of achieving and maintaining compliance but also allows your staff to concentrate on other business objectives.
Layered Tech has a decade of experience building and hosting FISMA compliant IT solutions for federal agencies and vendors that sell to the federal sector.
