collab9 is First and Only Cloud Provider Offering Federal, State, and Local Agencies a UCaaS Solution that Meets Stringent Federal Security Standards
LOS ANGELES, CA – August 18, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — collab9 today announced it is the first and only FedRAMPSM Authorized Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) provider in the world. With the cloud first mandate trickling through the U.S. government, Federal, State, and Local agencies now have a flexible, reliable, and secure unified communications (UC) cloud service catering to their requirements. collab9 was sponsored by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States to achieve a FedRAMP compliant ATO (Agency Authority to Operate) and verified by the FedRAMP PMO (Project Management Office).
“As agencies are increasingly using more cloud services, specialized services like UCaaS solutions are gaining greater entry into the Federal marketplace. FedRAMP is cloud agnostic so the authorization process works for any delivery model or service type. The Federal government’s increasing adoption of all types of cloud services will result in many more specialized services coming through FedRAMP, like UCaaS solutions,” said Ashley Mahan, FedRAMP Agency Evangelist.
Accordingly, collab9’s data center infrastructure was designed to meet the NIST 800-53 standards for Federal state and local government security requirements. In addition to its government-specific accreditations, collab9’s solution is enterprise-class, with its infrastructure meeting the security, capacity, and performance requirements of large-scale public sector and commercial organizations.
Services from collab9
The aforementioned are some of the most sought after features government IT executives look for in a cloud solution, but have been unable to utilize until now. Additionally, collab9’s feature rich solution incorporates a variety of technology and services from Cisco, EMC, Equinix, Level 3, Microsoft, and VMware.
“We’re elated to be the first and only UCaaS provider to earn the FedRAMP Authorized designation, with the help of the FCC as our sponsor. We can now help federal and government agencies accelerate their cloud adoption, increase their confidence in cloud security, and ensure the application of a consistent set of security standards to their cloud environments,” said Kevin Schatzle, CEO, collab9. “There is also a carryover benefit into state and local government, and other industries facing security compliance regulation, such as Law Enforcement, Healthcare, Financial Services, Education, among others. FedRAMP can be used as a baseline for security assessment and risk management, since it is the most stringent and can map to other security frameworks.”
