Xerox Prioritized for Authorization from U.S. Government for Cloud-based Managed Print Services

Federal Government agencies can soon hire Xerox knowing its Managed Print Services (MPS) solutions have been carefully pre-vetted and approved. Xerox has achieved in-process status for the U.S. government's Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). This process signals that Xerox is FedRAMP ready and has been prioritized by the Joint Advisory Board - the last step before full FedRAMP authorization. The move by the government reinforces Xerox's leadership in cloud-based MPS security and workflow automation.

The FedRAMP program standardizes security assessment, authorization and monitoring for cloud products and services government-wide. Cloud service providers authorized through FedRAMP are included on a centralized list accessible by all federal agencies. By using a cloud service provider from the list, federal agencies can eliminate the time-consuming, research-intensive process of vetting MPS products for purchase such as automatic supplies replenishment, print awareness and productivity and fleet management of multi-vendor printers and multifunction printers.

"Xerox has its roots in the cloud. Our MPS toolset was established in the cloud and features plug-and-play connectivity with go to market and delivery partners globally," said Ted Dezvane, senior vice president, Managed Document Services - Commercial Excellence, Xerox. "And now, we are in the process of making a key addition to our cloud capabilities - Xerox MPS for U.S. Federal Government."
