AlphaPoint Technology, Inc.’s, AssetCentral™ targeted for Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)
SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — AlphaPoint Technology, Inc., (APPO) a leader in DCIM and ITAM solutions for global enterprises, announced today that its Go-to-Market Partner for the rapidly expanding U.S. Government Sector, Peniel Solutions (PSL), has contracted cloud hosting services with Amazon Web Services (AWS) for AssetCentral™ on their GovCloud platform. AWS is one of a handful of companies who have achieved FedRAMP certification (The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services), to handle sensitive government data. PSL will be responsible for the migration and support of AssetCentral™ on the AWS GovCloud environment.
FedRAMP enables rapid procurement solutions – reducing the time to purchase an application from an average six months to only a few weeks. “When trying to address today’s IT issues, our customers can’t wait a year to acquire a solution and then another year to implement it,” said PSL President, James McGriff. “Two years later the problem we are trying to address is now yesterday’s news.” With FedRAMP, once an application is FedRAMP “pre-authorized” and being used in other agencies across the government, it will be easier for an agency to adopt the same application without going through a protracted and at time protest able RFP process.
AWS GovCloud (U.S.) is an isolated AWS region designed to allow U.S. government agencies and customers to move sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements. The AWS GovCloud (U.S.) Region adheres to U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) requirements.
“The move to a FedRAMP certified hosting vendor has been requested by many of our potential government clients and we are happy to comply with their requests,” said Gary Macleod, President of AlphaPoint. “The move of AssetCentral™ to the AWS GovCloud platform allows AlphaPoint, to concentrate on its next major release of AssetCentral™, while assuring our U.S. government clients the utmost in security standards.”
