Databricks Achieves Expanded FedRAMP Authorization for its Lakehouse Platform

Databricks, the lakehouse company, announced that it has received a FedRAMP Authorized status from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program’s Program Management Office (FedRAMP PMO) for its Cloud Service Offering (CSO) on Amazon Web Services (AWS) at a Moderate impact level, strengthening the Databricks Lakehouse capabilities for the US federal government. This further validates the use of Databricks by federal agencies and contractors, who can now consolidate their data, analytics, and AI with the Databricks Lakehouse Platform to improve the business of the government.

FedRAMP program was created to accelerate the US federal government’s adoption of secure cloud solutions and includes an independent third-party assessment organization (3PAO) performing an assessment of the following:

  • Implementation of the 325 FedRAMP Moderate NIST SP 800-53 controls to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of customer data
  • Vulnerability management practices by conducting independent vulnerability scans
  • Cloud service security by performing independent penetration testing

“We’re excited to see Databricks’ Lakehouse Platform achieve this authorization, reinforcing our commitment to cloud security and the public sector,” said Jude Boyle, Vice President of Public Sector at Databricks. “It has been a pleasure to partner closely with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) team on this endeavor. With this FedRAMP authorization, CMS and other federal customers have the ability to replace legacy data islands with the market leading federated lakehouse, accelerating digital transformation, and driving strategic initiatives. In addition, we’re looking forward to continuing to build upon our partnership with AWS as Databricks’ presence in the public sector accelerates with this important milestone.”

“AWS is committed to working with partners to help customers operate more predictably, securely, and efficiently,” said Jeff Kratz, General Manager of AWS Worldwide Public Sector Partners. “We are pleased Databricks achieved the FedRAMP authorization. This will help ensure US federal, state, and local government agencies can more securely run their mission critical applications to take full advantage of the cloud’s agility and cost savings.”
