BMC’s Remedy OnDemand for Public Sector Cloud Service Provides Regulatory Compliance
BMC Software has released Remedy OnDemand for Public Sector, a cloud-based IT service management (ITSM) solution. Remedy OnDemand provides service desk, self-service, change management, asset management, dashboards, and analytics tools. It also supports integration with third-party applications and custom workflow configurations.
Remedy OnDemand for Public Sector meets the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) minimum security requirements for government organizations. It provides low and moderate level security controls implemented according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-53, Revision 3 (Recommended Security Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations) for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). BMC also expects Remedy OnDemand for Public Sector to be the first ITSM SaaS solution to receive the United States Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program's (FedRAMP) provisional authorization once FedRAMP becomes fully operational later this year.
