Workday Nears Achievement of FedRAMP Authorization for Government Cloud Solution

Workday has announced that its government cloud solution has been granted Ready status at a moderate impact level under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. 

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that standardizes the approach to security assessment authorization and continuous monitoring of cloud-based services.

The milestone puts the enterprise cloud application provider one step closer to providing services in the U.S. federal marketplace. Workday said it could be given an authority to operate at the moderate level in spring 2022. 

According to the FedRAMP website, Coalfire Systems is the independent assessor of Workday Government Cloud. 

The multi-tenant public cloud-based offering consists of applications such as Workday Human Capital Management, Workday Financial Management, Workday Payroll and Workday Prism Analytics.

With the said applications, federal agencies are expected to gain access to real-time data, giving them much-needed insight to tackle workforce issues. Government customers should also be able to make informed budgetary decisions and be equipped with tools to navigate a rapidly changing regulatory environment.

Chano Fernandez, co-chief executive officer at Workday, noted that the company’s forthcoming entry into the federal market is a natural progression in its growth strategy

“Our goal is to bring federal agencies the support and insights they need, so they can focus on what matters most—making informed decisions as organizations evolve and supporting their employees in a changing world,” Fernandez said in a statement.
