By CIOReview | Tuesday, May 13, 2014

SUNNYVALE, CA:  Project Hosts, a provider of Custom Cloud hosting for Microsoft PPM, SharePoint and CRM has announced that its hosted Dynamics CRM 2013 platform is expected to be FedRAMP approved in Q3, 2014.

Dynamics CRM is the third Microsoft solution that Project Hosts has recently announced as part of its FedRAMP and U.S. Government cloud initiative. Project Hosts is also underway with the control and assessment process to ensure that SharePoint 2013 clouds and Project Server 2013 clouds are also fully FedRAMP approved. Project Hosts will leverage the FISMA / NIST compliant, and "Cloud First" authorized Azure platform to deliver hosted Dynamics CRM solutions and applications that are specifically tuned to U.S. Government agency requirements.

"Ensuring that U.S. Government agencies have access to a FedRAMP authorized CRM cloud is a key priority for us. With FedRAMP authorization, Government agencies will be assured that our CRM, SharePoint and Project Server Custom Clouds meet all their mandated requirements and standards," said Scott Chapman, CEO and Co-founder, Project Hosts.

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). Windows Azure is a secure and reliable cloud platform that enables companies like Project Hosts to quickly build, deploy and manage applications in a SaaS offering across Microsoft's extensive network of data centers.
