Google Cloud Achieves FedRAMP High Authorization on 100+ Additional Services

On the heels of achieving Top Secret/Secret authorization for Google Distributed Cloud Hosted, Google Public Sector today announced it has reached another significant milestone, with more than 100+ additional cloud services now authorized at FedRAMP High.

U.S. government customers can now access leading enterprise-grade Google Cloud capabilities that span cybersecurity, analytics, AI, and more in FedRAMP High environments using Assured Workloads. The new authorization means that government agencies now have a more modern choice in cloud vendors to help them meet their missions and digitally transform via infrastructure modernization, platform enhancement, app modernization, and advanced data analytics capabilities.

Authorized on Commercial Cloud for Cost, Speed, and Innovation Advantages

Importantly, the new FedRAMP High authorization is not restricted to isolated government clouds. Aligned with the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) guidance for embracing commercial cloud-based solutions, this authorization provides new opportunities for government agencies to leverage Google’s best-in-class AI capabilities in secure environments across Google Cloud’s existing product portfolio. Google Cloud’s investment in secure-by-default infrastructure ensures that security controls are built-in without the need for a traditional isolated government cloud.

Google Cloud’s FedRAMP-authorized services, made available through Assured Workloads, allow customers to confidently secure and configure sensitive workloads to support compliance and security requirements. Assured Workloads does not rely on physical infrastructure distinct from Google’s public cloud data centers. Instead, it delivers a Software Defined Community Cloud that offers similar cost, speed, and innovation advantages of an enterprise-grade commercial cloud.
