NEW YORK - Feb 27, 2018
Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced that the company has reached a significant milestone in providing its U.S. federal government customers increased confidence in the security of Infor's products and cloud solutions.
Infor Government Software as a Service (SaaS) (IGS) featuring Infor Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) has reached "FedRAMP Prioritization" status by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and has formally begun the process for achieving a Provisional Authorization to Proceed (P-ATO). IGS-EAM is a cloud-based, award winning, configurable enterprise-grade asset management solution that runs within Infor's Common Controls Environment that includes the Xi platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud FedRAMP infrastructure. Users have the power to improve asset and maintenance management for a diverse range of items, from simple to highly complex, in ways that help increase reliability, enhance predictive maintenance, ensure regulatory compliance, reduce energy usage, and support sustainability initiatives.
"We are excited to have been selected by the FedRAMP PMO based on our demonstration that Infor-offered services will benefit the widest variety of Agencies across the Federal Government. IGS is an important part of our overall Risk Management Framework to provide our government customers and government contractors secure SaaS offerings to meet their mission needs," said Joe Arthur, Public Sector Principle Strategy.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The final phase of the process is the JAB Authorization Review, where Infor will undergo a rigorous review of the company's security package, and will work closely with our 3PAO and the JAB to achieve FedRAMP authorization.
"Infor's applications continue to undergo rigorous requirements and increased scrutiny to move forward in this process, which very few companies can achieve. Proving that our solutions can handle these high levels of compliance will provide our customers with greater peace of mind when selecting our applications to streamline their business needs," said Wayne Bobby, vice president, Infor Federal. "This is a major step that provides our government customers a choice for industry specific solutions aligned with their business model today and into the future."
