By becoming FedRAMP certified, cloud service providers gain access to a vast, lucrative market of federal agencies and contractors.
Every single day, hundreds of thousands of security breaches and cyberattacks hit companies, making it a “must” that organizations have security controls in place. That’s why government agencies and more and more companies have their own established and tested security measures in place – and require that vendors do the same.
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, is government-wide compliance program that promotes the adoption of secure cloud services across the U.S. federal government. Created in 2011, FedRAMP provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP empowers government agencies to use up-to-date cloud technologies, with an emphasis on security and protection of federal information.
By establishing a common security framework, FedRAMP reduces redundant efforts. Government agencies in Washington D.C. can compare their security requirements with a standardized baseline. Once a cloud service provider (CSP) gains authorization for their cloud service offering, the security package can be used by any federal agency, making the authorization process more efficient.
The creation of transparent standards and processes for security authorizations through FedRAMP promotes the adoption of cloud computing within the federal government. The program’s government-wide security authorizations enable agencies to benefit from security authorizations.
Mildeeng Systems’ expert team of FedRamp consultants in Washington D.C. understands the importance for government agencies as well as their vendors, contractors, and subcontractors to be FedRAMP compliant.
Expert Oversight for FedRAMP Compliance in Northern Virginia
Although the FedRAMP certification process can be extensive and time-consuming, it provides significant benefits for cloud service provider. Passing the certification creates a competitive edge for CSPs, as they become eligible to work with federal agencies, and instills confidence in their security capabilities among non-government customers in Northern Virginia.
Obtaining the FedRAMP certification requires completing three rigorous stages. First, an agency must perform a security assessment to ensure compliance with specified controls and standards. Next, the FedRAMP program grants security authorization. Finally, the agency implements an authorization and continuous assessment plan. Successfully completing this process demonstrates a CSP’s ability to meet and maintain relevant security standards, having passed various cybersecurity tests, and serves as a testament to their credibility.
However, the certification process can be daunting for CSPs in Northern Virginia without experienced consultants to guide them through it. That’s why opting for a comprehensive FedRAMP audit is an ideal approach for CSPs.
