Reston, VA — January 6, 2012 — Hosting pioneer AIS Network, a proven leader in enterprise-class hosting solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced that it has begun expanding its focus on SharePoint hosting and cloud-based services for federal and U.S. civilian markets as well as state and local organizations.
The company’s intention is to focus on providing Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)-certified SharePoint hosting in the cloud for government agencies at the federal, state and local levels. This underscores AISN’s continued commitment to deliver highly secure, compliant dedicated and cloud hosting services to the rapidly growing SharePoint community throughout North America.
“Two years ago, AISN chose to locate its East Coast office in the nation’s capital, and since then, we have invested heavily in building a strong sales and marketing presence here,” said AISN CEO Jay Atkinson.
“As more federal and U.S. civilian agencies, as well as state and local organizations, adopt SharePoint to collaborate and increase productivity throughout their enterprises, we are well prepared to help those agencies achieve their business goals by moving their large, highly customized and complex SharePoint deployments out of their data centers and into a secure, accessible cloud environment.”
Atkinson said that because cloud computing provides significant cost savings and operational advantages for government, “We are now heavily invested in our public sector focus, and we look forward to working even more closely with our existing clients throughout the country as well as aligning with new clients and partners. Our goal is to enable even more government organizations to rest assured that their SharePoint deployments are protected and managed by experts in a state-of-the-art cloud environment.”
With network operations centers in the Washington, DC, and Chicago metropolitan areas, the 19-year-old AISN is recognized as a pioneer in managed hosting. Within the last two years, the company has doubled in size.
