White Paper: BlackMesh
Does your FedRAMP-compliant PaaS meet the federal and government agency requirements?
When agencies explore the possibilities of cloud technology, they find that their applications must be hosted on FedRAMP-compliant infrastructures – and even for cloud security experts, the FedRAMP process can be arduous and complicated.
So what are the most common challenges for companies going through FedRAMP?
How long does the FedRAMP assessment process take?
This whitepaper discusses common issues that arise through the FedRAMP program and assessment process.
Benefits and features of FedRAMP compliant
Combating Internal threats to information security through compliance
Bringing the government up to speed with cloud technology
The secure cloud solution
Beyond Cloud security
Each year, HighRoads surveys companies about their current processes and future plans for compliance communications. In 2013, HighRoads invited mid- to large-sized organizations throughout the United States to share information about their compliance and governance operations; their approach to producing, updating and distributing Summary Plan Descriptions (SPD) and the steps they are taking to generate the Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) and other required notices under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Benefits communication straddles an unusual line between the everchanging requirements of government regulation, the increasing need for clear, concise and understandable content and changing preferences for how to receive and send information. That said, there are some things that remain constant from year to year-such as what employers find most challenging and the lack of good data around compliance expenditures.
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery were the most commonly cited reasons (60%) for having adopted Cloud-based solutions for backup and recovery. Enterprises acknowledge that cloud backups and recovery are required to maintain business operations and business continuity. The ability to recover data, when needed, in a cost effective manner was widely cited as one of the main criteria used to select a particular Cloud service. This whitepaper takes a look at both the advantages for those who have transitioned to cloud solutions and drawbacks for those who haven’t. Key takeaways from this whitepaper: Characteristics of today’s retention landscape Business Continuity, not simply Data Recovery, is the actual requirement Are Cloud-based backup & recovery solutions being used to address these needs? Benefits of using the cloud for backup, recovery and business continuity Criteria used to select Cloud solutions Hindrances to adoption of Cloud-based solutions for backup and recovery
What is Cloud Computing ?
A type of internet-based computing, Cloud computing refers to delivery of computing services over the internet or "the cloud" instead of using local storage and computing. The different computing services include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, applications, and analytics. Cloud computing eliminates the need for hardware acquisition, maintenance, installation of software.
What is Software ?
Software is a general term for the various kinds of programs that enable computers and related devices to work. Software consists of carefully-organized computer instructions and code written by programmers in any computer languages such as Java, PHP, C, C+ and Python.
What is Cloud security ?
A sub-domain of cyber-security, cloud security implies security of cloud computing infrastructure, applications, and data by applications of technologies and policies designed for the same.
