Achieve and maintain your FedRAMP Compliance with our comprehensive Consulting and Remediation Services. Assure your confidence in cloud security solutions through a successful initial and continued FedRAMP authorization.

What is FedRAMP?

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a US government-wide program that delivers a standard approach to the security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program was initiated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in response the to the U.S. government's 2011 Cloud First Policy.

The FedRAMP provides federal agencies a standardized approach to assessing, authorizing, and continuously monitoring the security of cloud services to aid agencies in the FedRAMP authorization process as well as save government resources and eliminate duplicative efforts.

FedRAMP Requirements

FedRAMP security requirements for cloud services are getting an update to align with recent guidance from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  The FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) has outlined the following requirements for FedRAMP compliance:



The cloud service provider (CSP) has been granted an Agency Authority to Operate (ATO) by a US federal agency, or a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB).



The CSP meets the FedRAMP security control requirements as described in the Standards & Technology (NIST) 800-53, Rev. 4 security control baseline.



All system security packages must use the required FedRAMP templates.



The CSP must be assessed by an approved third-party assessment organization (3PAO).



The completed security assessment package must be posted in the FedRAMP secure repository.

Are you compliant?

FedRAMP security requirements are mandatory for all US federal agencies and all Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) that hold federal data. Key benefits of FedRAMP Compliance include, but are not limited to:

  • Significantly reduces the time and cost of compliance by utilizing a “do once, use many times” approach. Instead of requesting assessments each time, an agency initiates a CSP acquisition.
  • Effectively enhances the transparency between government entities and cloud service providers (CSPs), which improves the trustworthiness, reliability, consistency, and quality of the Federal security authorization process, and
  • Assures confidence in the validity of assessments and FedRAMP security.
