The demands for secure access to documents and data within government organizations continues to grow. Public access is imperative to providing good service and expanding remote and hybrid workforces also require secure remote access. Government IT budgets simply cannot keep up with the investment required to put systems online with the required security infrastructure.Cloud hosting can be the answer. Cloud hosting provides a solution that is affordable, scalable and secure.The cloud can be used to host both cloud-native applications and systems that previously ran on-premise. The security capabilities offered by commercial cloud providers are best-in-class and are difficult for government agencies to provide in-house.
Organizations who make the transition to the cloud can quickly and affordably provide access for the public and employees, no matter where they may be. Storage is secure and can be configured to meet most government security standards. Plus, there is no limit to the size of files, the location of access, or number of active users.
Welcome to the ImageSoft Cloud
The ImageSoft Cloud is hosted on the Microsoft Azure Cloud (and/or the Azure Government Cloud) and is ideal for any organization, particularly those in the public sector. As the name suggests, Azure Government has government-level security measures in place to safeguard any and all data stored within it. All ImageSoft hosted products can be deployed in the Azure Cloud so that all files are accessible and protected.
The Two “Levels” of Cloud HostinG
ImageSoft offers two variations of Cloud Hosting to best suit your organization’s needs. If you need help deciding which method is best for you, our experts will be happy to facilitate a discussion.
We host your services in our Cloud. Our team will help migrate your existing systems or get your ImageSoft products developed right in the Cloud from the get-go. Once everything is set up, our team takes a step back. We’re still here for support if you need us, but we let you take the reins and run the Cloud however you see fit for your organization. Benefits of ImageSoft Cloud Hosting:
- The setup process is still handled by us
- You have the freedom to manage the system as you see fit once setup is complete
- Your teams have access & control to make changes as necessary
We help migrate/implement services into Azure. However, once the setup is complete, we don’t just hand over the keys and watch you drive into the sunset. Rather, we give you one key and keep another for ourselves so we can go in and help you manage the Cloud throughout your partnership with us. We essentially act as your IT team for all things Cloud. We’re there for support, management, troubleshooting, and more. Benefits of Managed Services include:
- A helping hand with onboarding if you’re new to the Cloud

Benefits of the ImageSoft Cloud
Designed for continuous development, Cloud hosting is hyper-scalable and can expand or compress data storage needs depending on your current business conditions.
Unlike on-premise servers, the cloud allows any authorized personnel to access files at any time of day or night. As long as there is internet access, staff can reach files they need whenever and wherever needed.
The Microsoft Azure Government cloud adheres to regulations required for CJIS, PCI, FedRAMP, FIPS, SOC2, ADA, and NIST 800 compliance.
With a Department of Defense (DoD) Level 5 Provisional Authorization, your processes will exceed even the strictest standards, protecting data from breeches and cyberattacks from all angles.
Switching to the cloud can save thousands of dollars each year. ImageSoft’s Cloud Hosting offers flexible pricing models based on the size and needs of your organization.
Teams and departments can access files from nearly any device thanks to the cloud’s mobile capabilities. Take work on-the-go, troubleshoot in a flash, and keep relevant information safely at your fingertips.
In the event of a disaster, the cloud protects your data from deletion. On-premise servers can be destroyed, taking all files with it. The cloud is internet-based, meaning any device can be used to recover “lost” documents even after disaster strikes.
No File Limits
As more work moves online, files are becoming more numerous and far larger than ever before. The cloud can handle files of any size without eating away at local storage space. Save documents large or small and know they’re safe in the cloud.
Reach New Heights with the Cloud
Are you ready to take your business to new heights? Transitioning to the cloud is simple and fast, ensuring that you don’t lose anymore time waiting for documents and files. Combine cloud hosting with other business applications, Robotic Process Automation, and the Internet of Things (IoT) to unlock even more potential.
