FedRAMP In Process Designation, A Milestone in Cybersecurity Commitment

FedRAMP In Process Designation, A Milestone in Cybersecurity Commitment

It’s been said that the Federal Government is one of, if not the largest, producer of data in the United States, and this data is at the heart of mission delivery for agencies across the civilian to DoD spectrum. Data is critical to driving the innovation and decision-making that improves services, streamlines operations and strengthens national security. Moreover, as emerging technologies like generative AI proliferate across Federal use cases, the need for trusted data that is secure, governed and ready for AI has never been more acute.

I am pleased to announce that Cloudera has achieved FedRAMP “In Process”, a significant milestone that underscores our commitment to providing the public sector with secure and reliable data management solutions across on-prem, hybrid and multi-cloud environments. This designation reaffirms Cloudera’s dedication to delivering enterprise-grade, government-scale data management capabilities while maintaining a hyper-focus on data security.

Cloudera has long been recognized as a leader in the field of data management, offering a comprehensive suite of products and services designed to meet the unique needs of government agencies. While Cloudera has a firm history supporting public sector use cases like smart military bases, Department of Defense flight safety, and other public sector use cases, the FedRAMP “In Process” designation will make hybrid-cloud data management available to an even greater number of federal agencies.

Purpose Built for Security

Here at Cloudera, we focus on ensuring that our platform meets the highest standards of security and regulatory compliance. We understand the importance of protecting sensitive government data from unauthorized access, and we have implemented robust security measures to safeguard this information. 

FedRAMP requires that we meet strict security standards to protect government data. Cloudera is perfectly suited for FedRAMP and securing government data due to our integrated approach to security and governance. With independent operation from compute and storage layers, Cloudera ensures that security and governance are foundational elements of our platform. This integrated approach helps simplify and streamline the implementation of security controls required by FedRAMP. Our use of metadata also ensures persistent context across all analytics and cloud environments, making it easier to maintain consistent security policies and access controls.

The Road Ahead

As we push forward to FedRAMP Moderate Authority to Operate and, subsequently, FedRAMP High authorization,  Cloudera remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering both a true hybrid data platform and cybersecurity excellence that will empower federal agencies and their partners to get the most out of their data management.
