Project Hosts to Highlight CRM 2015 Dedicated Clouds to Customers, Partners and Agencies in Need of Enhanced Security, FedRAMP Compliance, and Guaranteed Performance at Microsoft Convergence 2015 - Booth# 1745

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2015) - Project Hosts, Inc., the leading provider of Custom Cloud hosting for Microsoft Solutions, announced today that it is now delivering Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 dedicated clouds for ISVs, partners, commercial customers and government agencies. With internet security becoming an increasingly trending topic, a Dynamics CRM dedicated cloud from Project Hosts meets customer and partner needs for enhanced security, U.S. Government FedRAMP SaaS compliance and guaranteed performance; as well as for more business flexibility and personal support services. Project Hosts will be showcasing the advantages of its Dynamics CRM 2015 dedicated clouds at the upcoming Microsoft Convergence 2015 event in Atlanta, GA between March 16 and 19; for those attending the event, contact info@projecthosts.com to request a one-on-one meeting with Project Hosts' CEO, Scott Chapman.

"Our dedicated partner clouds deliver compelling business benefits to Dynamics CRM and ERP Partners and ISVs," said Scott Chapman, CEO and Co-Founder of Project Hosts. "By being FedRAMP SaaS compliant, we can help Dynamics ISVs get their applications approved for U.S. Federal and State Agency deployments with minimal effort and expense. With the government's 'Cloud-First' initiative and mandate in place, FedRAMP compliance is now a must for ISVs looking to leverage this burgeoning market."

For Dynamics CRM and ERP Partners and ISVs, Project Hosts offers a dedicated partner cloud that is distinct and separate from other partners or providers. Unlike a Public Cloud offering built on shared (multi-tenant) servers, a dedicated cloud supports the installation of their application software on top of the Dynamics CRM or ERP platform. In addition, a dedicated cloud can be customized to the buyer's specific security needs, is more configurable by the ISV through direct database access, and can be scaled to suit the customer's performance demands. Dynamics CRM and ERP partners also benefit from Project Hosts' FedRAMP SaaS Compliance authorization, directly opening large market opportunities.

About FedRAMP: FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program was developed to significantly reduce the effort and expense that would be incurred by government agencies to achieve high-level standards for securing government data. Designed as an "approve once, deploy many" program, authorized Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) would attain a provisional Authority To Operate (ATO) and provide cloud services for many agencies. Government agencies can then select an authorized CSP in an effort to save taxpayer expense on government IT infrastructure and cloud applications. The JAB is the primary governance group of the FedRAMP program, consisting of the chief information officers of the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. General Services Administration. The FedRAMP program supports the U.S. government's "Cloud-First" initiative to enable U.S. federal agencies to use managed service providers that enable cloud computing capabilities. The FedRAMP program is designed to comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA). All government agencies are now required to use FedRAMP.
