Oracle Cloud Gains New FedRAMP High JAB & DISA IL5 Accreditations
The recent FedRAMP High Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) accreditations from the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Impact Level 5 (IL5) gives Oracle yet another touchdown for being the most secure cloud service provider for the US Government. The approval came in conjunction with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s newly added services to their government regions—exclusively for the government customers—including the Oracle VMware Solution and Oracle Digital Assistant, for unlocking efficiency in all public offices of the United States without straining on budgets or allowing any trade-offs on security.
JAB, as a matter of course, is the principal governing body for Federal Risk and Management Program (FedRAMP)—a cyber security program for the procurement and use of cloud services by the U.S. government agencies—ran by several high-level executives of the US government, including the Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and General Services Administration (GSA).
