Google for Work -- the enterprise arm of Google Apps -- is now offering unlimited cloud storage to all U.S. government workers.
In a blog post Friday, Google for Work president Amit Singh said that over the holidays, Google for Work and the Google App Engine received FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) authorization to operate.
The authorization means that the security of both platforms has been assessed against federal standards. FedRAMP provides a list of certified cloud providers to government agencies looking to use cloud as part of their IT infrastructure.
"And because this authorization -- along with its ongoing compliance requirements -- covers our common infrastructure, it benefits all existing Google Apps for Work and App Engine customers as well," Singh wrote in the post.
In the past, Akamai, Microsoft and Amazon Web Services have received the FedRAMP certification.
