Microsoft’s Curt Kolcun on New Federal Cloud Offerings

Microsoft has rolled out new cloud-based solutions specifically designed for the federal government.

The new Business Productivity Online Suite Federal is optimized to meet the security, privacy and compliance needs of U.S. federal government agencies. In addition, there will be future capabilities and certifications that will continue to raise the bar in cloud security and privacy, including two-factor authentication, enhanced encryption and the expected attainment of Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) certification, an important requirement for government information technology, in the next six months.

“The reason that governments in 48 of the 50 U.S. states have chosen from our Microsoft Online Services for offerings is in large part because our offerings are built from the ground up with enterprise-grade security and privacy in mind, ” Curt Kolcun, vice president of Microsoft U.S. Public Sector, said in a statement.
