The Micro Focus Government Cloud will help protect mission-critical data with less risk and cost
Santa Clara, Calif. – December 7, 2021 - Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP) today announced plans to build a secure and compliant government cloud for U.S. Government customers with the company’s comprehensive portfolio of IT services. As the federal government accelerates digital transformation and smart adoption of highly secure cloud platforms to help protect mission-critical information, this effort will allow for them to leverage Micro Focus’ IT capabilities to easily compose service offerings for advanced cases in IT Operations Management and DevSecOps.
“Providing a government cloud demonstrates Micro Focus’ continued commitment to the U.S. Government and shows that we are a strategic partner when it comes to helping with digital transformation and cloud modernization,” said Phil Rayment, Vice President of Federal Sales for Micro Focus. “The Micro Focus Government Cloud also demonstrates an alignment with Federal IT Acquisition Regulation Act (FITARA) cost reduction goals, the Federal Information Security Act (FISMA), along with government wide cloud adoption and strategic data management objectives.”
Key services of the Micro Focus Government Cloud include:
- Comprehensive IT Operations Management: A curated set of integrated capabilities to support advanced and ITIL-compliant IT operations management including service management, service assurance, service fulfilment, and governance.
- DevSecOps: Enterprise services for IT Portfolio/Project management that support both Waterfall and Agile work patterns, as well as functional testing, quality and test management and performance engineering.
Government customers can purchase services to support simple or comprehensive cases for Enterprise Service Management, DevSecOps and Cloud. This approach allows for Micro Focus to provide unique service capabilities that span across the company’s entire IT portfolio, improving time to value for less cost. Initially accredited as FedRAMP Moderate, the Micro Focus Government Cloud’s control baseline is designed to fully support FedRAMP High and DoD’s Impact Level 4 authorizations in the future. The ability for alignment to open standards for IT Management allows for government customers to consume advanced IT service offerings for all aspects of the IT Value Chain.
