Project Hosts Makes Microsoft SharePoint, CRM and PPM SaaS Solutions Available on FedRAMP JAB P-ATO Approved Windows Azure Platform

Enables U.S. Government Agencies to Quickly and Cost Effectively Take Advantage of Dedicated Cloud Solutions for Document Sharing and Collaboration, Project Management and Relationship Management

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/08/13 -- Project Hosts, the leading provider of Custom Cloud hosting for Microsoft PPM, SharePoint and CRM, announced today that its SaaS solutions are now available on a FedRAMP JAB P-ATO approved Windows Azure cloud infrastructure. Project Hosts will leverage this FISMA / NIST compliant platform to deliver SharePoint, CRM and PPM (Project and Portfolio Management) SaaS and Cloud solutions that are specifically tuned to U.S. Government agency requirements.

Project Hosts delivers Custom Cloud hosting and Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions that, unlike public clouds, provide dedicated environments with the customized security, applications and real-time reporting requirements that U.S. Government offices and agencies require. With more than a decade of experience in Microsoft hosting and cloud services, Project Hosts provides the necessary SaaS competencies to deliver Microsoft SharePoint, Project Server and Dynamics CRM applications on top of the Windows Azure IAAS and PAAS cloud layers.

On September 30, 2013, Microsoft announced that Windows Azure was granted Provisional Authorization to Operate (P-ATO) from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Joint Authorization Board (JAB). The FedRAMP program supports the U.S. government's "Cloud-First" initiative to enable U.S. federal agencies to use managed service providers that enable cloud computing capabilities. The FedRAMP program is designed to comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA). Windows Azure is a secure and reliable cloud platform that enables companies like Project Hosts to quickly build, deploy and manage applications in a SaaS offering across Microsoft's extensive network of datacenters.

According to Microsoft's announcement, Windows Azure is the first public cloud platform, with infrastructure services and platform services, to receive a JAB P-ATO. This level of federal compliance helps assure Microsoft customers that Windows Azure has undergone the necessary security assessments. With support from SaaS companies such as Project Hosts, agencies can now quickly meet U.S. government Cloud-First computing initiatives and realize the benefits of the cloud using Windows Azure.

"With Azure's FedRAMP P-ATO approval, and FISMA / NIST standards compliance, we can deliver Microsoft SharePoint, CRM and PPM SaaS solutions to far more U.S. Government agencies and departments," said Scott Chapman, CEO and Co-Founder of Project Hosts. "This gives us tremendous leverage into the U.S. Government market, as does our ten year history and expertise in hosting Microsoft solutions and the deployments we've done for the EPA, U.S. Treasury and other agencies."

About FedRAMP: FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The JAB is the primary governance group of the FedRAMP program, consisting of the chief information officers of the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. General Services Administration.

About Windows Azure: Windows Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters.
