Qlik Cloud Government, our mission-ready cloud platform built for the US Public Sector, has achieved FedRAMP Moderate authorization.
Qlik announced our authorization under the US Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) has been approved, with the sponsorship of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This authorization allows US Federal, State, and local agencies to use Qlik Cloud Government safely and securely for data integration, analytics, machine learning, and more!
FedRAMP is a U.S. government program that approves cloud products and services for the U.S. Public sector. The goal of FedRAMP is to accelerate the adoption of cloud solutions for agencies and support their transition from older legacy infrastructures to mission-critical, secure, and cost-effective cloud-based technology.
“As federal agencies and organizations rapidly modernize and migrate to the cloud, they must ensure the transition is protected under the strictest secure protocols and authorizations,” said Andrew Churchill, Vice President of Federal at Qlik. “Achieving this FedRAMP milestone validates Qlik's ability and commitment to meet the unique and ever-changing needs of our government clients and equips them with greater access to state-of-the-art solutions to reach their mission goals.”
Qlik worked closely with their sponsoring agency, the EPA, who implemented Qlik Cloud Government to ignite innovation and evolve their current analytics program. The EPA leveraged Qlik Cloud Government to unlock more value out of their data in addition to improving operational efficiencies and reducing costs across the agency.
“Working with Qlik in their pursuit of FedRAMP authorization allowed EPA to shift resources to delivering analytics to protect human health and the environment rather than IT administration,” said Arthur Zuco, Program Manager at EPA. “Our world is moving to the cloud and, by adopting SaaS, we are setting ourselves up to take advantage of the kinds of new capabilities that will be delivered by the SaaS market in general for years to come.”
Federal, state, and local agencies worldwide trust Qlik for data integration and superior analytics capabilities through a state-of-the-art platform built to enable end-to-end data analytics pipelines that close the gaps between insights and action. Now our US Public Sector customers can take advantage of that vision in a FedRAMP-compliant cloud environment.
Qlik’s FedRAMP Moderate authorization is also recognized by the Department of Defense (DoD) at IL2 and has started uplift certification for IL4.
