MongoDB Atlas for Government Achieves FedRAMP Ready Status Upon Launch
NEW YORK – June 28, 2021 – MongoDB, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDB), the leading, modern, general purpose database platform, today announced that it has been approved as FedRAMP Ready for Agency Authorization. MongoDB achieved FedRAMP Ready status for its newly available document database service available in AWS GovCloud (US) and AWS US East/West regions, MongoDB Atlas for Government.
MongoDB Atlas for Government is a dedicated environment for government needs that will allow agencies to build and iterate faster. This new offering provides the simplest way to deploy, operate, and scale MongoDB for modern applications, all in a FedRAMP Ready environment that helps customers meet the most demanding data security and privacy standards.
“Agencies, developers, and the ISVs that serve them need to build modern applications that can quickly adapt to rapidly changing mission needs without worrying about scale and security. Too often government administrators are bogged down, wasting time and resources with second rate technologies, sacrificing innovation in an attempt to meet rigorous security standards,” said Brent Leech, Vice President, Public Sector of MongoDB. “MongoDB Atlas for Government provides the versatility needed to modernize legacy applications and support the unique requirements and missions of the government - in a secure, fully-managed, FedRAMP Ready, environment.”
FedRAMP is a U.S. government program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. Achieving FedRAMP Ready status is a strong indicator of success for full FedRAMP authorization and it means that MongoDB’s Readiness Assessment Report (RAR) has been approved. MongoDB is listed on the FedRAMP Marketplace as a FedRAMP Ready vendor.
“As government agencies continue to modernize and leverage data analytics and the cloud, we are pleased MongoDB Atlas for Government is now available in AWS GovCloud in the U.S. The document database is strategically designed to meet the application development needs of public sector customers,” said Sandy Carter, Vice President of Partners and Programs, Amazon Web Services (AWS). “We look forward to supporting MongoDB on their journey to achieve full FedRAMP authorization, and we congratulate them on their FedRAMP Ready certification.”
