Daston Corporation, a leading provider of customized Software-as-a-Service and Cloud (SaaS|Cloud) computing technology solutions, today announced that Google Apps for Government will be available on Daston’s GSA Schedule and through Apps.Gov. Google Apps brings government agencies the latest messaging and collaboration technologies and some of the best practices in the industry for datacenter management, network application security, and data integrity.
Google’s latest release was designed with guidance from federal and local government customers and includes specific measures to address the policy and security needs of the public sector. Google Apps for Government is also the first suite of cloud computing messaging and collaboration applications to receive Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) certification and accreditation from the U.S. General Services Administration.
“We are excited to make this great new edition available via our GSA schedule and on Apps.Gov for less than $50 a year per user,” said Michael Pait, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Daston, which is a premier reseller and integrator for Google Apps. “Google Apps has always provided an extremely cost-effective, secure and reliable solution for many of our government clients including the City of Orlando and the Lee County Port Authority in Florida. The FISMA certification, combined with Google’s commitment to continue to deliver an on-going stream of innovation targeted specifically for the public sector market make Google Apps for Government an ideal choice for agencies ready to realize the performance and cost benefits of moving to the cloud.”
“With reviews of our security controls in place, government agencies can more easily take advantage of all the benefits of one of the world’s best cloud computing systems,” said Dan Israel, Product Marketing Manager for Google Apps for Government. “And we’re not stopping with FISMA certification.
