Federal agencies looking to use digital signatures in a secure cloud environment now have an option: eSignLive has partnered with a FedRAMP compliant provider in order to bring its software to the government.
Distributed by VASCO, eSignLive will be available through Project Hosts, which gives agencies the ability to run various Windows and Linux applications on a private cloud.
eSignLive has been used in the government for over 20 years, utilized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, U.S. Army, General Services Administration, U.S. Postal Service, and U.S. Department of Agriculture. The software is used in conjunction with a PIV or CAC card in order to electronically sign digital documents related to contracting, procurement, mobility, supply chain management and human resources, among others.
“eSignLive is making digital government a reality through our partnership with Project Hosts and running our e-signature solution in its FedRAMP-compliant cloud environment,” said eSignLive President Tommy Petrogiannis. “This partnership answers the demand from government agencies to be able to transact completely electronically with the highest level of data security, compliance and auditability – driving stakeholder and citizen engagement at the same time.”
Project Hosts runs a suite of different Microsoft SaaS products on an Azure cloud, including sharePoint, Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Office. It also offers various third-party SaaS offerings, including project management platform Innovate-e, financial management UMT360 and content management systems like Joomla and WordPress.
“By incorporating eSignLive directly into our Azure FedRAMP cloud environment, we perform the necessary due-diligence and create the requisite documentation to ensure all security controls are in place to maintain SaaS-level FedRAMP compliance,” said Scott Chapman, CEO and co-founder of Project Hosts.
Project Hosts cloud earned a FedRAMP ATO through the Department of Commerce. Their services can be purchased through NASA SEWP.
