Is your data secure?

Is your data secure? Not sure?  You are not alone. Your data is our utmost priority. At Mitchell Humphrey & Co. we believe in doing what we do best – developing exceptional software for state & local government – and leaving the hosting to the specialists. Maybe it is time for a heart-to-heart with your application software provider.

Our hosting partner, Rackspace Government Solutions (RGS), provides a managed cloud solution that ensures you meet Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) compliance standards.

Here is what makes Rackspace stand out:

  • Deep public sector experience – serving Department of Defense, civilian, and state & local entities, independent software vendors, government contractors, and more
  • Audit-ready – per FedRAMP, maintaining an “audit-ready” posture, archiving continuous monitoring artifacts on a monthly basis
  • Security – RGS provides a managed cloud offering on par with the risk management framework defined by FedRAMP
  • Technical compliance – multi-cloud solution meets several security and technical standards, including but not limited to:
    • FedRAMP
    • Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)
    • National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-53
    • Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations System (DFARS) / NIST SP 800-171

The Rackspace Government Cloud’s (GC) modular design makes security the top priority. It provides the cost-savings, flexibility, and customization that public sector organizations need to meet their own unique performance and security requirements. Our fully managed OS PaaS platform transcends traditional Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) with its comprehensive list of compute and virtualization functions, device support, architecture, and software. With 24/7 monitoring and support strengthened by system and network monitoring software, your infrastructure is always secure.

If you are not sure if your data is secure, we can help.
