today announced new capabilities for Acquia
Cloud, extending the company’s strengths in security innovation and
compliance for digital experience platforms. Additions include new tools
to manage risk and updated compliance for a pair of key U.S. federal
standards, providing the security and compliance that companies require.
These updates expand upon the broadest set of compliance and security
services available anywhere on a single cloud platform for Drupal
Acquia Cloud provides a secure, resilient and broadly supported cloud
platform. The cloud-native platform enables customers to build and
manage Drupal-based digital experiences, freeing staff to innovate on
every channel, engage customers, and grow their brands.
As global brands expand the breadth of digital offerings, they need to
ensure that customer data is secure at every touchpoint. These new
capabilities give enterprises the ability to provide protection without
taxing the resources of security and operations teams. New security
capabilities include upgraded single sign-on (SSO) integrations, greater
support for SIEM log forwarding, and upgraded controls for access and
governance. Acquia customers can also increase their levels of assurance
with Acquia’s adherence to new facets of the Federal Risk Authorization
and Management Program (FedRAMP) and Federal Education Records Privacy
Act (FERPA) compliance standards.
“These new capabilities for Acquia Cloud empower our customers with
insightful governance by providing foundational security principles
directly to our customers,” said Joseph Janik, chief information
security officer at Acquia. “Built on AWS’ platform, these innovations
provide deeper insights into hosted applications along with a
comprehensive set of security capabilities.”
“In today’s world, cybersecurity is more important than ever. That’s why
Mobomo is working closely with leading-edge government agencies to
tackle their cloud-first initiatives through FedRAMP cloud
platform-as-a-service offerings,” said Ken Fang, president of Mobomo.
“Acquia’s new security capabilities ensure that our customers stay
up-to-date on the latest security requirements through better
integration into hybrid cloud environments and increased flexibility in
both configuration and control. In addition, continual updates to the
security features of the platform enables Mobomo to provide seamless
integration and up-to-date security solutions to our customers in a
cost-effective and efficient manner. These capabilities give Mobomo and
their customers comfort knowing their information is safe, while
allowing us to focus on what really matters — delivering more features
and functionality to our end users.”
