DoD Approves Edge Hosting Commercial Cloud Service Offerings – FedRAMP


We’re proud to announce that the Defense Information Systems Agency granted a Department of Defense Provisional Authorization (PA) for cloud service offerings to host DoD mission data up to Impact Level 2 in a cloud environment to Edge Hosting!

The exact offering is:
Edge Hosting CloudPlus – Managed Cloud for Secure Windows and Linux Application Hosting. Service Model: Platform as a Services (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). FedRAMP Agency ATO by Department of Labor.

A DoD PA defines impact levels based on the sensitivity and risk associated with the data, which was used to establish minimum protection and controls required. There are four impact levels: 2, 4, 5 and 6, with mandated protections increasing with each successive level. Impact Level 6 is for data classified as Secret.

Impact Level 2 is for Non-Controlled Unclassified Information which includes all data cleared for public release, as well as some DoD private unclassified information not designated as CUI or critical mission data, but the information requires some minimal level of access control.

Edge Hosting demonstrated compliance with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Moderate baseline and each was granted a FedRAMP Agency Authority to Operate (ATO).
