Akamai achieves FedRAMP compliance
Akamai Technologies reported achieving FedRAMP compliance as a Cloud Services Provider. Akamai received a Provisional Authority to Operate from the Joint Authorization Board, or JAB, of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP. This is the first JAB ATO granted to a globally distributed, publicly shared cloud services platform. Agencies can leverage Akamai cloud services directly, or use them to front end other FedRAMP-compliant data center solutions. This model offers a unique end-to-end FedRAMP compliant solution that is designed to help make it easier for the U.S. Government to use shared cloud services in support of federal computing initiatives.
