Today, only a small number of Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) have access to the Federal marketplace. Those are the ones that are FedRAMP compliant. All others are in jeopardy of losing the opportunity to sell their services in the Federal marketplace.
What is FedRAMP?
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud services to be used by federal entities.
As part of the FedRAMP authorization, the security controls implemented by the CSP must be evaluated for operational effectiveness by a FedRAMP-accredited independent assessor called a Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO).
How Can Infoguard Assist You to Become a FedRAMP Authorized CSP?
Meeting the FedRAMP compliance requirements can be a time-consuming and daunting task, requiring detailed knowledge of security requirements in the Federal government. Experience with the body of documentation from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is essential.
Infoguard understands that you are in the business of selling cloud services, not security. That’s why we are here to prepare your organization to undergo the FedRAMP assessment process by discovering readiness level, identifying any gaps to remediate, assisting with remediation, performing duties related to documentation of controls, security testing, and delivering a finalized security package in pursuit of either a Joint Authorization Board (JAB) Provisional Approval to Operate (P-ATO) or a federal agency sponsored Approval to Operate (ATO).
This work is performed independent of 3PAO assessment team as not to present a conflict of interest.
