As a public safety IT Leader, you've got significant challenges when it comes to data storage. When managing your public safety workforce data, one thing to consider is whether or not to use the cloud to host your data or to keep everything within your own network.
As a government public safety agency, you live under a microscope of demands and expectations. You must adhere to the highest levels of security while meeting complex government compliance regulations.
That's why Orion uses Microsoft Azure Government to deliver a cloud platform built upon the foundational principles of security, privacy & control, compliance, and transparency. Public safety agencies receive a physically isolated instance of Microsoft Azure that employs world-class security and compliance services critical to government for all systems and applications built on its architecture.
These services include FedRAMP and DoD compliance certifications, CJIS state-level agreements, the ability to issue HIPAA Business Associate Agreements, and support for IRS 1075. Operated by screened U.S. persons, Azure Government supports multiple hybrid scenarios for building and deploying solutions in the cloud. Public safety agencies can also take advantage of the instant scalability and guaranteed up-time of a hyper-scale cloud service.
Orion's on-premise hosted model installs and operates from your own server and network infrastructure. This platform may be more in alignment with your strategic goals and policy requirements. With this model, Orion's AgencyWeb software is licensed for a specific time period and the entire instance of software remains within your agency's premises. You own your data and your infrastructure's security maintenance. It's really all about what works best for you!
