Provider of enterprise WordPress, WordPress VIP (WPVIP), part of Automattic’s suite of brands, has received a FedRAMP ‘Authority to Operate’ (ATO) approval. With WordPress VIP’s FedRAMP approval, government agencies in the U.S. are ensured they get government-grade security and compliance when deploying and hosting WordPress websites.
FedRAMP authorization would demonstrate WPVIP’s commitment to creating data security for all its customers including government agencies. WPVIP claims to have stringent security protocols in place to protect sensitive information. Also, its intuitive and easy-to-use content management workflows would allow users to receive up-to-date, accessible, and accurate information.
“Security and compliance are some of the most critical disciplines for WordPress VIP,” said Eduardo Lundgren, WPVIP’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO). “Global brands in high-risk industries like finance, health, defense, tech, and government need to feel confident when we power their applications. All of our origin data centers maintain SOC 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 certifications, and now we are the first WordPress enterprise platform with a fully hosted FedRAMP-certified solution. We enable our customers to focus on building digital experiences and get them to market quickly and confidently, all with government-grade security and compliance.”
Automattic is a distributed company with more than 1,300 employees working from 79 countries. They are the people behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, WooCommerce, Tumblr, Simplenote, VaultPress, and more. As a content platform for the enterprise ecosystem, WPVIP would fit in seamlessly within many Fortune 100 companies.
“With WordPress VIP’s FedRAMP approval, government agencies can finally deploy and host websites quickly and affordably,” said Ab Emam, CEO of Web Development Group (WDG), a leading Digital Transformation and web development agency based in Washington DC. “Government agencies will no longer need to spend many millions on costly website infrastructure and security. Through WPVIP, WordPress will offer agencies great digital experiences backed by easy-to-use tools without sacrificing security, bringing community-led innovation to the government space.”
