Benefits of FedRAMP Authorized Unified Communications from Avaya and Collab9
Describing the benefits of Avaya’s joint solution with collab9, Jerry Dotson, vice president of Avaya Government Solutions said: “FedRAMP authorization for Avaya’s UCaaS through our collab9 partnership offers the best of both worlds. Government agencies now have access to a variety of scalable enterprise-grade UC service capabilities from a trusted government IT leader, all on a fixed cost per user basis.”
This solution marks the first time that Avaya’s Aura Communication Manager products are available as a FedRAMP Authorized solution. FedRAMP is a government program that provides a “standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring” for agencies evaluating cloud services. It’s estimated that this framework can save agencies 30-40%, as well as time and effort.
In addition to the efficiency of leveraging a FedRAMP Authorized provider, agencies can place increased confidence in the security of their cloud environment. In order to meet and maintain a FedRAMP Moderate Authority to Operate (ATO), vendors must address the 325 controls outlined by NIST in its special publication SP 800-53r4.
