MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands - 29 July 2020 -

Elastic N.V. (NYSE: ESTC) (“Elastic”), the company behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, today announced that Elastic Cloud, which powers Elastic Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security as managed services, has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Moderate authorization.

The FedRAMP Moderate authorization, and its baseline of 325 controls, allows users from federal agencies and other industries in regulated environments to manage Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) such as personally identifiable information (PII) and routine covered defense information (CDI).

FedRAMP provides standardized security requirements for cloud products, services assessments, and monitoring used in federal agencies. It ensures a more streamlined procurement process for U.S. federal customers by standardizing security requirements across federal agencies and allows them to choose authorized cloud solutions that meet various levels of security requirements and certification with confidence.
From monitoring and securing sensitive systems to powering search across public records, the Elastic Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security solutions can be used to drive value and report on valuable government agency information, from one powerful technology stack. Elastic gives agency professionals new techniques to protect their network and information assets leveraging everything from log, network, and geospatial data to structured, unstructured, and cybersecurity data. Elastic solutions are fully compatible with legacy tools to facilitate IT modernization, and implementation includes a full complement of consulting, development, technical audit, training, and support services to ensure government user success.
Elastic continues to deliver impactful solutions to its federal and government customers. In addition to its FedRAMP Moderate authorization, Elastic Cloud is now generally available on AWS GovCloud in the United States, enabling U.S. government agencies to easily deploy Elastic solutions — Enterprise Search, Observability, and Security — in the cloud.
