AvePoint Announces FedRAMP Authorization for Cloud Platform
FedRAMP is a program created to standardize the government’s approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
Authorization entails that a product has been rigorously evaluated and that its software-as-a-service solutions have cleared for use by federal agencies at the moderate impact level, AvePoint said Monday.
AvePoint Online Services was designed to serve as an SaaS solution for users of Microsoft 365 and SharePoint services, according to the company’s product page.
The platform offers a suite of solutions for migrating, managing and protecting data, as well as tools for backing up Microsoft 365 data, managing records and managing permissions, AvePoint said.
The Department of Energy, which served as the sponsor for the authorization, uses AvePoint Online Services to automate its management of SharePoint and Microsoft Teams records in compliance with recordkeeping regulations, the company added.
Taylor Davenport, executive vice president of AvePoint’s U.S. public sector business, said that government agencies are becoming increasingly burdened by massive amounts of data as they adopt modern collaboration services.
Davenport believes agencies can address the challenge by implementing automated solutions for managing, protecting and securing their digital collaboration systems.
AvePoint claimed that more than 400 public-sector organizations, including 163 federal agencies, are already using the company’s solutions for managing and protecting their Microsoft 365 and SharePoint data.
Headquartered in Jersey City, New Jersey, AvePoint is a computer software company that specializes in helping cloud technology users overcome challenges in transformation, governance and compliance.
