Mendix Cloud for Government: Flexible Systems Keep You Secure 

Security is a paramount concern for all federal government agencies. Sensitive data, including personal information, must be handled with necessary care and privacy protections, while software and digital services need to adhere to rigorous security requirements. 

The U.S. federal government demands a high level of security requirements. Given that only a few providers can step up and meet the challenge of its prerequisites for certification, those who work at federal government agencies have limited software options. But now, federal agencies can implement software without compromising flexibility or usability for premium security. Mendix Cloud for Government is a FedRAMP in-process platform to modernize legacy systems, streamline operations, and empower teams across an organization with digital solutions.  

With Mendix now FedRAMP in-process, agencies have a new and superior option for app development platforms. A federal agency or Department of Defense (DoD) organization can leverage Mendix Cloud for Government as a platform for enterprise-grade application development. Siemens Government Technologies – the wholly owned, cleared, federal arm of Siemens – is the cloud service provider supporting Mendix Cloud for Government. Mendix Cloud for Government, found on the FedRAMP Marketplace, offers faster ROI, more options, including composability, for an entire organization ecosystem, and a fully secure cloud deployment. 

FedRAMP promotes adopting secure cloud services across the federal government by providing a standardized approach to security and risk assessment for cloud technologies. Mendix Cloud for Government is being utilized today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), which provided agency sponsorship throughout the certification process.

To understand why Mendix Cloud for Government is a breakthrough for the U.S. federal government, consider how federal agencies have long struggled with implementing secure systems with high useability and flexibility. Part of the problem is that prior software options haven’t been adaptable even to federal agencies with highly competent technical staff. Noting trouble with a program developed to modernize systems to process immigration requests, the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) reported that the “proprietary technology adopted was too complex and inflexible, and releases happened years after the project began.” That’s just one example of a long-running and widespread issue with digital public services. If your team fails to comprehend the complexity of the system they use or it is too inflexible for their common purposes, failures and slip-ups can result in compromised data.

Mendix Cloud for Government is optimized for federal government agencies to develop apps securely hosted on AWS GovCloud, which is designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads, and address the most stringent U.S. government security and compliance requirements.

Deploy Mendix apps at scale with the added option to have direct connectivity to private networks. The support from Siemens Government Technologies means you do not need a DevOps team to set up and manage your hosting, and the Infrastructure and Operations are managed by a team of U.S. citizens on U.S. soil. AWS GovCloud is only accessible to U.S. entities and root account holders who pass a screening process. 

Flexibility ensures security. As a FedRAMP in-process platform, Mendix Cloud for Government offers a world of possibilities for federal agencies and their supply chain. Prepare for the leading application-as-a-platform service to deliver a secure environment you can count on.
