HOW WE CAN HELP
If you have a Cloud Service Offering (CSO) that is being used by the US federal government, you should consider obtaining a FedRAMP Authorization. Cloud services that hold federal data must be FedRAMP Authorized.
How to obtain FedRAMP?
There are two approaches to obtaining a FedRAMP Authorization: a provisional authorization through the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) or an authorization through an agency. Both authorization paths require a security assessment based on Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requirements and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 baselines.
FedRAMP is right for you if:
● You have an interest in selling your CSO to the US federal government.
● Your current federal government customers are asking you to obtain a FedRAMP Authorization.
● You are looking to expand the federal customer footprint by having the ability to market your service as FedRAMP Authorized
