FedRAMP Compliance Solutions
What is FedRAMP?
Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a “government wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessments, authorizations and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.” This program was created to be a “do once, use many times” standard. With the goal of making cloud computing more secure, FedRAMP addresses additional controls specific to the cloud. For more information on FedRAMP, please visit www.FedRAMP.gov.
Why do I need FedRAMP?
Whether you have an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) or Software as a Service (SaaS), Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) that benefit from their offerings being used by the government must comply with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) framework. Government and Federal Agencies benefit from the minimization of cybersecurity risks as they utilize cloud computing, protecting confidentiality, and availability. Agencies are able to visit the FedRAMP marketplace to find CSPs in process or authorized in the FedRAMP process.
CSPs are assessed to determine their compliance with FedRAMP security controls by third party assessment organizations (3PAOs).
