Understanding the Challenges of Our Government Clients
Safeguarding the IT operations of those who serve the public sector has never been easy. With increased demand driving data center capacity concerns, and data storage needs testing the scope of even the largest service platforms, local government and federal agencies are always on the lookout for ways to address their growing IT service challenges.
Governed by a number of specific compliance mandates, government clients must select only the most qualified of hybrid service providers.
Physical security standards for public sectors clients go beyond ID cards and perimeter security. Finding partners who go the extra mile to meet these requirements can be a challenge.
In addition to physical security, government and public sector clients often require private, direct networking connectivity between their secured intranets and their hosting party sites.
Access Verification & Logging
Beyond building access controls, requirements for logging and long term retention of data related to building and digital asset access are part and parcel to FedRamp and FISMA standards.
