“Highly regulated industries, and especially U.S. public sector consumers of cloud, face future operating realities comprised of hybrid and multi-cloud architectures. This hybrid and multi-cloud future will benefit from the investments ServiceNow and Microsoft have made in their respective FedRAMP authorizations, all of which will help ensure IT security and regulatory compliance for agency missions’ systems and citizen services.”
