Secure Application Performance Management Platform Enables Government Agencies to Provide World-Class Digital Experiences

San Francisco - June 15, 2020 - AppDynamics, part of Cisco and the world’s #1 APM solution, announced today that its cloud-based application performance management platform has been authorized at the moderate impact level by the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) to sell to government agencies.

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a United States Federal Government program that provides a security and risk assessment framework for cloud service providers (CSPs), enabling US government agencies to securely adopt cloud-based services as part of their ongoing digital transformation and innovation strategies. CSPs authorized by the PMO are required to undergo rigorous compliance checks to ensure they meet and maintain the strict security and data management standards of government agencies. These include: 

● A security posture that diligently guards confidentiality, integrity and availability of data;

● Committed incident response resources and plan;

● Rigorous and ongoing security testing.

With this new authorization, AppDynamics can provide its leading cloud-based application performance management solution to government IT departments.  Agencies can now deliver best-in-class experiences to their constituents and internal users with an unprecedented level of visibility and insight into mission-critical applications. Digital transformation and cloud adoption initiatives can be accelerated to modernize government IT operations with confidence, saving time and resources typically spent on costly security assessments and managing on-premises deployments.

“This authorization comes during a global health crisis when we are reminded daily of the critical role government agencies play in serving the public through access to key resources and information,” said Ely Greenfield, chief technology officer, AppDynamics. “With FedRAMP authorization, we’re proud to offer government agencies access to the leading application performance management solutions on the market, and ensure the delivery of critical digital services that support constituents across the United States.”

“We’re seeing our government customers migrate an increasing number of workloads to public, private and hybrid cloud environments, which is placing an increased emphasis on FedRAMP compliance,” said Chris Wilkinson, president, DLT, a Tech Data company. “AppDynamics earning FedRAMP authorization strengthens DLT’s portfolio of technologies available through our network of channel partners and helps our government customers mitigate security risks through a compliant solution, while consuming it through cloud consumption models.”
