Layered Tech to Announce New Federal Community Cloud Platform at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2014
KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — At the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2014 (WPC), Layered Tech, a leading global provider of secure and compliant hosting services, will launch a new federal cloud platform that will deliver unparalleled flexibility and security for federal agencies and government clients that require cloud computing services. The conference is in Washington, D.C. and runs July 13 – 17.
Layered Tech Government Solutions, formerly New World Apps, will unveil its Federal Community Cloud Platform, a new Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution geared towards helping government agencies manage cloud infrastructure with higher security at lower cost.
All federal agencies must adhere to the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA), and Layered Tech is a leader in providing FISMA-compliant hosting solutions and services that meet cloud security standards set by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).
The Federal Cloud Community Platform blends the cost benefits and flexibility of a public cloud with the security and customization of a private cloud, offering the highest level of security at the best possible price for government agencies.
Layered Tech Government Solutions serves more than half of the US federal cabinet-level agencies and was previously selected by Microsoft as its Cloud ISV Incubation Center for US Public Agencies. Microsoft Dynamics also selected Layered Tech as 2013 Partner of the Year for its expertise in providing FISMA-compliant cloud hosting solutions to federal government agencies.
“Layered Tech’s expertise and experience with sensitive federal data make them an ideal partner for managing cloud solutions,” said Kirk McElwain with the Small Business Administration’s Office of Communications and Public Liaison. “This new platform is an exciting new step that shows Layered Tech is dedicated to improving its products and services.”
Given its location in Washington, D.C., and Layered Tech’s history with the conference, the WPC makes an ideal launch platform for the Federal Community Cloud Platform.
“We’ve been a Microsoft Partner for several years, and we’re excited to be able to launch such a terrific product at one of the most visible tech conferences in the world,” said Dan Tudahl, Layered Tech Government Solutions President and General Manager. “We are laser-focused on cloud security and compliance and we are on target to achieve FedRAMP certification this summer. The Partner Conference is a great opportunity to show our strengths on the government side, as well as in commercial cloud hosting.”
Layered Tech will be at Booth 2304 in the WPC exhibition hall.
