NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced that Infor Government Software as a Service (SaaS) (IGS) featuring Infor Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) has received FedRAMP Ready status by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
"Infor's applications went through rigorous internal testing, and arduous internal and independent assessments, in order to be granted this achievement," said Wayne Bobby, vice president, Infor Federal. "We are excited to formally announce this accomplishment, as protecting customer data is at the heart of our development process and we are confident that we will meet ongoing assessments and authorizations in the future because of our commitment to maintaining a secure infrastructure. This designation gives our customers increased confidence in the security of our products and the cloud solutions they have selected to use."
IGS-EAM is a cloud-based, award winning, configurable enterprise-grade asset management solution that runs within Infor's Common Controls Environment that includes the Xi platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud FedRAMP infrastructure. Users have the power to improve asset and maintenance management for a diverse range of items, from simple to highly complex, in ways that help increase reliability, enhance predictive maintenance, ensure regulatory compliance, reduce energy usage, and support sustainability initiatives. By using Infor EAM to manage preventive maintenance and upkeep of infrastructure, facilities, fleet, and linear assets, as well as all equipment, organizations are able to provide reliable and responsive services to those depending on them.
As a next step, Infor will undergo a Full Assessment as part of the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB) to achieve a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) status, giving all Federal agencies the authorization to use Infor Government Software solutions. "Our government agency customers have a multitude of software needs in order to run operations as efficiently as possible. This includes back office HR, financials and contract lifecycle management, operations support, supply chain logistics, asset management, clinical interoperability, business intelligence and analytics. Now that our technology platform has been deemed FedRAMP Ready, we can quickly get this first group of products in the queue of approvals over the coming months, and continue to add additional products based on customer demand," continued Bobby.
