"ISVs with add-on apps for popular Microsoft solutions like SharePoint can work with Project Hosts to provide their solution in a FedRAMP compliant cloud," said Scott Chapman, CEO and Co-Founder of Project Hosts, Inc. "Since achieving our FedRAMP compliance earlier this year, we've been working with leading app providers such as AvePoint, BrightWork, Innovative-e, Nintex and most recently UMT360, to enable their entry into the U.S. Government marketplace."

"Project Hosts has the only Microsoft Project Server FedRAMP SaaS-compliant cloud," said Catalin Olteanu, President, UMT360. "UMT360's solutions seamlessly integrate with Project Server, so when it comes to deploying with U.S. Government agencies, Project Hosts is the obvious choice for us to work with. By running UMT360's Enterprise Portfolio Management Solution in their Federal Private Cloud, Project Hosts ensures that it continues to meet the 325 security controls required by FedRAMP."

About FedRAMP: The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. This approach uses a "do once, use many times" framework that saves an estimated 30-40% of government costs, as well as both time and staff required to conduct redundant agency security assessments. FedRAMP is the result of close collaboration with cybersecurity and cloud experts from the General Services Administration (GSA), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Defense (DOD), National Security Agency (NSA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO) Council and its working groups, as well as private industry.
