FISMA High compliance
The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is a United States federal law that was enacted in 2002 to strengthen information security systems and protect government information and operations. It is one of the most important regulations for U.S. federal data security standards and guidelines.
FISMA High is the highest level of compliance and provides the strictest level of controls to ensure protection of more critical or sensitive data that would have a severe or catastrophic effect on an organisation should it be lost.
HyperCloud has been designed to meet FISMA High compliance standards and is already used in the executive and legislative branches of the US federal government, Defence and by the contractors and other organisations that support them.
FedRAMP High and Department of Defence (DoD) SRG IL-5
FedRAMP is the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. It was developed in 2011 to support the United State’s “Cloud-first” mandate and to give guidance for security in the cloud.
FedRAMP high impact level is the standard for security necessary to protect some of the U.S. federal government’s most sensitive unclassified data.
HyperCloud has been accredited to FedRAMP High and DoD SRG IL-5. IL-5 information covers controlled unclassified information across a number of sectors including defence, critical infrastructure, finance, law enforcement, intelligence and others.
IL-5 also covers National Security Systems and can provide services to any agency involved in intelligence activities, cryptologic activities related to national security, command and control of military forces and weapons systems.
Validation against the FIPS 140 standard is required for all U.S. federal government agencies that use cryptography-based security systems — hardware, firmware, software, or a combination — to protect sensitive but unclassified information stored digitally
SoftIron maintains an active commitment to meeting the FIPS 140 requirements.
