Google Cloud Gains FedRAMP High Authorization for More Than 100 Services

Dozens of additional Google Cloud services have now secured Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program High authorization, according to Leigh Palmer, vice president of Google Public Sector’s technology, strategy and delivery unit.

The authorization for more than 100 additional services allows U.S. government agencies to leverage Google Cloud’s enterprise-grade capabilities in cybersecurity, analytics and artificial intelligence, supporting government agencies in modernizing its infrastructure, applications and platforms, Google Cloud said.

Google Cloud’s FedRAMP-authorized services are designed to assist the public sector in the secure and compliant configuration of sensitive workloads through its Assured Workloads solution.

Google Cloud said Assured Workloads eliminates the need for separate government cloud deployments and additional physical infrastructure, offering cost, speed and innovation advantages through a software-defined community cloud.

The authorization, which aligns with the Office of Management and Budget’s guidance for commercial cloud solutions, empowers federal agencies with advanced functionalities for their federal missions, including Vertex AI, Google Security Command Center and BigQuery.

For instance, agencies can leverage Google’s Vertex AI platform for tasks like translation, speech-to-text and predictive analytics, while Google Cloud’s Security Command Center provides tools for risk management, security monitoring and threat detection.
