Salesforce has announced that its cloud instance, called Government Cloud Plus, which runs on Amazon Web Services’ GovCloud platform, has received a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program provisional authority to operate at the High Security Impact Level. The operational clearance allows Salesforce customers to deploy the company’s Customer 360 customer relationship management platform and industry solutions in a compliant and secure environment.
