With MuleSoft’s Government Cloud, government IT teams can leverage the same core Anypoint Platform benefits from a secure, FedRAMP-compliant cloud environment to accelerate their project delivery speed up to 3x faster via reusable APIs.
While a number of government agencies have begun to leverage cloud-based technologies, on-premises infrastructure maintenance and other challenges are slowing digital transformation progress.
A new integration approach: iPaaS
To address these challenges, cloud-based integration solutions, also known as iPaaS (integration platform-as-a-service), are growing in popularity across the private sector to accelerate IT innovation and ultimately replace on-premises integration and the aging, costly infrastructure needed to support it.
However, government options for iPaaS have been limited to date due to FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) compliance standards required for usage in the federal government. Likewise, at state and local levels, FedRAMP authorization provides a level of vetting and trust needed for cloud-based integration of their sensitive data. MuleSoft has been working to address this problem by launching our Government Cloud, the first FedRAMP-compliant environment in a single runtime engine designed for government agencies to develop, deploy, manage, and monitor integrations and APIs in the cloud.
What is Government Cloud?
With MuleSoft’s Government Cloud, government IT teams can leverage the same core Anypoint Platform benefits from a secure, FedRAMP-compliant cloud environment to accelerate their project delivery speed up to 3x faster via reusable APIs. Anypoint Platform allows all government integration assets to be managed and monitored from a single, secure, cloud-based management console, simplifying operations and increasing IT agility.
Leveraging integration-as-a-service via MuleSoft’s Government Cloud environment also frees up government IT teams to focus on designing, deploying, and managing integrations while only paying for the integration infrastructure and computing capacity needed. This approach reduces agency dependency on outdated on-premises integration, saves considerable time and costs associated with on-premises infrastructure, all while adhering to executive mandates for cloud-based migration.
