DataArchiva: Now ready to work with US Government Cloud
In 2012, Salesforce launched its own multi-tenant instance of Salesforce.com, called the Government Cloud, which was dedicated and primarily built to meet federal government security standards. If we see functionality wise, the solutions offered under the Gov Cloud by Salesforce is pretty much same that is for commercial customers, however, this enables government agencies more efficiently build or use applications to better connect with other agencies, employees, and citizens. This also allows them to share best practices and apps on the Salesforce AppExchange, reducing redundancy and adhering to higher security standards.
Gov Cloud is compliant with FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, a government-wide program that offers a standardized security approach for cloud services and solutions. So, after being US Gov Cloud ready, DataArchiva is now fulfilling all the norms of security standards and proved to protect federal data safety and retention.
