FedRAMP Compliant Website(s) powered by CMS Tools from Drupal, Joomla! and WordPress

U.S. federal and state government agencies and enterprise organizations that need a highly secure website and CMS (Content Management System) platform can rely on our NIST 800-44, FedRAMP Moderate, High, DoD CC SRG IL4/5 SaaS-level compliant clouds for:

  • Drupal FedRAMP Website / CMS
  • Joomla! FedRAMP Website / CMS
  • WordPress FedRAMP Website / CMS

We’re Project Hosts, a CSP (Cloud Services Provider) with a FedRAMP Agency ATO (Authority To Operate) for our Federal Private Cloud (FPC) for Windows and Linux applications.  Our FPC includes a variety of applications and tools, among which are the world’s most popular website development and content management systems.

If you’re in need to build and maintain a FedRAMP compliant website and database using Drupal, Joomla! or WordPress, we have what you need. Unlike FedRAMP IaaS-level compliant website offerings where you still have to put in place and manage all of the scanning, patching, log correlation, intrusion detection, incident response and other security services required for FISMA compliance, our FedRAMP SaaS-level compliant websites allow you to just focus on your website content and leave all the security aspects to us.

Highlights

  • FedRAMP Compliant Drupal Websites (CMS)

    The Drupal project is open source software. Anyone can download, use, work on, and share it with others. It’s built on principles like collaboration, globalism, and innovation. It’s distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). There are no licensing fees, ever. Drupal will always be free.

  • FedRAMP Compliant WordPress Websites (CMS)

    WordPress powers more than 24% of the web — a figure that rises every day. Everything from simple websites, to blogs, to complex portals and enterprise websites, and even applications, are built with WordPress. WordPress combines simplicity for users and publishers with under-the-hood complexity for developers. This makes it flexible while still being easy-to-use.

  • FedRAMP Compliant Joomla! Websites (CMS)

    Joomla! is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. Over the years Joomla! has won several awards. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS that allows you to build powerful online applications.

Pursuant to a memorandum released in November, 2016 by the US Office of Management and Budget, M-17-06 Policies for Federal Agency Public Websites and Digital Services, Project Hosts’ FedRAMP compliant website can meet website objectives and recommendations:   Federal Agency public websites and digital services are the primary means by which the public receives information from and interacts with the Federal Government. These websites and services help the public apply for benefits, search for jobs, comply with Federal rules, obtain authoritative information, and much more. Federal websites and digital services should always meet and maintain high standards of effectiveness and usability and provide quality information that is readily accessible to all. The May 23, 2012 Digital Government Strategy set forth a roadmap to help agencies improve digital services and use emerging technologies to serve the public as effectively as possible. Building on that strategy, on August 11, 2014, the White House released the U.S. Digital Service Playbook containing 13 key “plays” drawn from successful practices from the private sector and government. The requirements in this Memorandum support building effective and user-centric digital services as outlined in those two documents. US Government Website Recommendations
