Federal Government Cloud Security Success

FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) provides a standard approach to securing cloud services for federal agencies. Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) leverage FedRAMP to do business with federal agencies as part of the government’s cloud first strategy. It is a ‘do once, use many times’ framework that helps streamline government cloud service procurement. FedRAMP requires an independent assessment by an accredited Third-Party Assessor Organization (3PAO). As an accredited 3PAO, we can help by providing the following:

  • Readiness Services

    Preparing for a FedRAMP assessment requires the document completion and control implementation. Multiple forms are required in the application process, and preparing them the right way the first time will speed things up. We can help you complete any and all of the documents you need to move through the FedRAMP process. To help with control implementation, we assess gaps, and help develop implementation strategies and project plans to help get the job done.

  • Readiness Assessment Reports

    FedRAMP Accelerated helps cloud companies get through the FedRAMP process faster than before. Part of the Accelerated program includes completing a capabilities assessment, and capturing and reporting the results in the Readiness Assessment Report.

  • 3PAO Assessments

    Whether pursuing an agency authorization or Joint Authorization Board approval, an assessment will have to be completed. As an accredited 3PAO, we will complete an assessment and help you through the certification process.

  • Penetration Testing

    FedRAMP assessments require the completion of a penetration test. Our experienced security engineers are experts in vulnerability analysis, ethical hacking, web application security, social engineering tests and physical security assessments.
