Datadog, Inc. (NASDAQ: DDOG), the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, announced today it has received Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Agency Authorization at the moderate impact level through sponsorship from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
FedRAMP is a United States federal government program that provides a standardized approach to security and risk assessment of cloud services and technologies. FedRAMP enables the federal government to accelerate the adoption of cloud computing by creating transparent standards and processes for security authorizations. Agencies can then leverage these authorizations on a government-wide scale. At present, the FedRAMP marketplace lists 40 federal agencies that have granted Datadog an Authority to Operate (ATO).
“Moving mission-critical applications to the cloud is an important step in federal agencies providing better citizen services, and the observability and security Datadog provides are vital to successful cloud migrations,” said Jeff Kratz, General Manager of Worldwide Public Sector Partner Programs at Amazon Web Services (AWS). “We are excited to continue our work with Datadog to help more public-sector customers improve and accelerate their cloud journeys.”
