Microsoft: Google Lied About Security Standards ( ... )

Quote:
Google has been touting the fact that its Cloud-based suite of offerings designed for government customers was certified under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), a small detail which apparently is not true, Microsoft pointed out.

And itís not exactly Microsoft thatís doing the pointing, since the Redmond company is merely repeating the conclusions of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ).

DOJ reveals that despite the Mountain View search giantís claims to the contrary, Google Apps for Government has not received FISMA certification.

To quote the page "perhaps itís time to ask another question: at the very least, isnít it past time for Google to issue a correction on its website?"

The fact that it is on their website is a little more than misspoke, that's just as fraudulent as a scammer setting up a fake eBay website. They are advertising a product to be something it is simply not.

They lie and deceive about the stealing of data and privacy with regards to maps/streetview, etc. so why would this be a huge surprise?

Besides, little will come of it if anything. They are teamed up with Obama.

The whole problem here seems to have to do with confusion between "Google Apps Premium" and "Google Apps For Government"

Google first to get FISMA certification for cloud apps
July 26, 2010 - 3:11pm

WFED's Max Cacas reports
By Max Cacas Reporter Federal News Radio

If your federal agency is considering moving some, or all, of your IT infrastructure into the cloud, your first big vendor is knocking on the door.
Google today announced that it has received Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) certification and accreditation for its Google Apps suite of cloud computing services.
David Mihalchik, Business Development Executive with Google, says a full suite of office applications now made available under the brand Google Apps Premium will now be available to federal, state, and local municipal agencies under the brand 'Google Apps for Government', including:

Google's claims of FISMA certification questioned

April 12, 2011

By Jason Miller
Executive Editor
Federal News Radio

Google is having a hard time clearing up the confusion over whether its claim that its Google Apps for Government cloud offering has been approved to meet federal cybersecurity standards.
The search engine giant issued a release last summer saying it met the requirements to be certified at the moderate level of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) for its cloud offering.
David Mihalchik, Google's business development executive, said last July during a press conference that Google Apps for Government has received FISMA certification from the General Services Administration.
But recently released court documents show Google's Apps for Government is not FISMA certified. The court found that Google Apps Premier, its public cloud, received approval to operate from GSA, but not the Google Apps for Government suite of software. The court stated Google Apps for Government still is going through the certification process.

Seem like another Federal government screw-up.
