The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) provides a uniform approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
To sell cloud-based systems to the federal government, organizations need proper authorization for their systems, and this is what the FedRAMP compliance process provides. FedRAMP is among the most rigorous software-as-a-service certifications available anywhere. Before embarking on FedRAMP compliance, your organization’s Cloud Service Offerings (CSO) must be functional, and your leadership needs to be fully committed to working through the challenging FedRAMP compliance process.
The primary goals of FedRAMP are to assure:
The SureShield platform simplifies FedRAMP compliance by automating technical controls and guiding you through operational controls. SureShield’s automation will reduce your overall FedRAMP compliance cost by up to 90% when compared to traditional, labor-intensive compliance methods. For organizations requiring compliance to multiple frameworks, crosswalk automation drives cost savings up toward 90%.
Reduces duplicative efforts, inconsistencies, and cost inefficiencies.
Establishes a public-private partnership to promote innovation and the advancement of more secure information technologies.
Enables acceleration of the adoption of cloud computing by creating transparent standards and processes.
FedRAMP contains 14 applicable laws and regulations, along with 19 standards and guidance documents. To be FedRAMP compliant, covered companies must implement security controls dictated by the governing Joint Authorization Board (JAB), document implementation in a System Security Plan (SSP), pass an independent assessment, and submit the documents for review to either a Federal Agency or the JAB. After authorization, covered entities must implement a continuous monitoring program to ensure their cloud systems maintain an acceptable risk posture.
