  • Acquia Cloud Receives Second FISMA Certification For Federal Cloud Customers

    Acquia Cloud Receives Second FISMA Certification For Federal Cloud Customers

    Acquia, a Drupal solutions provider, announced today that it has received a second Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) Authorization to Operate (ATO) for federal customers using Acquia Cloud. FISMA compliance provides a path for government agencies to develop next-generation digital experiences with Drupal that incorporate the web, mobile and social communities. 

    FISMA and its associated National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards provide a risk-based framework to support security best practices for systems managed by federal agencies. Acquia is the first provider to offer enterprise-class Drupal cloud services with a FISMA moderate ATO, which provides insight and assurance in Acquia’s ability to deliver secure cloud services for government websites and social communities. The authorization, obtained earlier this year as part of Acquia’s work with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, provides documentation to federal agencies that are evaluating the security protocols of Acquia’s cloud services.

Recently, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts redesigned their official website, Mass.gov, using the Percussion CM System. Before I begin,…
