Smartsheet Achieves AWS Government Competency Status
BELLEVUE, Wash., June 20, 2019 – Smartsheet (NYSE: SMAR), a leading cloud-based platform for work execution, today announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Government Competency status. This designation recognizes that Smartsheet has developed innovative technology and solutions that leverage AWS services to address the specific security needs of the U.S. Federal Government.
Achieving the AWS Government Competency differentiates Smartsheet as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that possesses deep domain expertise in government workplace solutions and is approved to deliver mission-critical workloads and applications for government customers on AWS.
“Smartsheet is proud to be an APN partner and to achieve AWS Government Competency status,” said Gene Farrell, Chief Product Officer. “Our team is dedicated to helping government agencies digitally transform and collaborate more fully across departments and agencies, enabling a more effective and efficient means of getting work done.”
Smartsheet Gov is a secure solution built on the AWS GovCloud (US-East) and AWS GovCloud (US-West) Regions that helps break down silos across departments, streamline programs and processes, create transparency for constituents, manage long term strategic planning and track assets more effectively. It is designed to allow federal departments, agencies and bureaus to organize and scale processes to keep up with the modern workplace.
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
Smartsheet achieved “In Process” status in April as part of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and is now listed in the FedRAMP marketplace for federal agencies and government contractors. The company announced the general availability of Smartsheet Gov at the AWS Public Sector Summit in Washington, D.C., earlier this month.
