FedRAMP is a U.S. government program providing a standardized approach to authorization, continuous monitoring, and security assessment for cloud-related products and services. MongoDB received FedRAMP's approval because it fulfilled the requirements of strict performance, compliance, and security standards. It is now listed among FedRAMP-authorized companies, offering cloud software to government organizations to help them innovate and grow faster and more confidently with FedRAMP's approval.
Chief Product Officer of MongoDB, Sahir Azam, said, "Security is our priority at MongoDB and a top priority for our customers. We know that with the proliferation of different types of data that is transmitted and stored in the cloud, protecting sensitive data is increasingly important for both private and public entities." He added, "The FedRAMP Moderate designation, as well as the assessment of MongoDB Atlas for Government in support of customers with CJIS requirements, are the result of our efforts to ensure that MongoDB Atlas for Government is well positioned to secure the country's most crucial data sets and power the most innovative applications designed to transform government. Now the more than 7,500 government organizations leveraging AWS also have access to MongoDB Atlas for Government to create modern applications.
