(The Hosting News) – Layered Tech, a global provider of secure and compliant managed hosting and cloud services, has been named Microsoft’s U.S. Federal Government Dynamics Partner of the Year for 2013. The award honors Layered Tech’s use of Microsoft technology in support of federal agency mandates to move line-of-business solutions to the cloud.
Layered Tech and Microsoft recently teamed to launch a Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)-compliant business solutions cloud leveraging the versatile Microsoft Dynamics application platform. Hosted by Layered Tech in top-tier data centers, the Microsoft Dynamics Government Cloud supports a range of federal agency business needs including case management, workforce management, call center service management, constituent correspondence and outreach, and more. Agencies using this highly secure offering from Layered Tech and Microsoft can run their IT workloads in either a FISMA-compliant, single-tenant private cloud, or a FISMA-compliant, federal-only community cloud.
“Federal agencies can feel confident in a cloud delivery model that meets federal government mandates such as FISMA and the ‘cloud-first’ policy,” said Amir Capriles, General Manager of Microsoft Dynamics U.S. Public Sector. “We are thrilled to recognize Layered Tech as a Partner of the Year for its leading innovation and unwavering commitment in serving the federal market.”
“Layered Tech is honored to be chosen as Microsoft’s 2013 Dynamics Federal Partner of the Year,” said Brad Hokamp, Layered Tech president. “We are pleased to provide FISMA-compliant cloud offerings to the Microsoft partner community. As the federal government continues to expand its cloud initiatives and be focused on security, the Microsoft Dynamics for Government Cloud hosted by Layered Tech is a joint offering that meets the demands of the public sector.”
Layered Tech has a long history of providing hosting solutions that meet the unique security and functionality requirements of federal customers. More than half of the cabinet-level U.S. federal agencies use Layered Tech’s FISMA-compliant hosting and cloud services, including some of the most security-sensitive agencies such as the Departments of Justice, Energy, and Treasury. To help advance the development and adoption of government-oriented cloud applications, Layered Tech runs a Public Sector Incubation Center for software vendors and system integrators leveraging the Microsoft Dynamics platform.
