On Wednesday, we announced that we are the first Cloud Service Provider (CSP) to achieve FedRAMP Ready status through the new accelerated Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP Accelerated), and CloudPassage Halo is now listed on the FedRAMP marketplace for federal agencies and government contractors.
In order to meet FedRAMP Ready status, we were assessed for critical controls such as the use of approved cryptographic modules; continuous monitoring capabilities; authentication, authorization and access controls; and configuration and risk management.
CloudPassage was awarded the FedRAMP Ready status because the platform is likely to attain an authorization to operate from a federal agency or the Joint Authorization Board (JAB). CloudPassage is extremely proud to have earned FedRAMP Ready status, which demonstrates that we are a trusted cloud service provider who upholds high standards and meets FedRAMP’s rigorous review process.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP is the result of close collaboration with cyber security and cloud experts from the General Services Administration (GSA), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Defense (DOD), National Security Agency (NSA), Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO) Council and its working groups, as well as private industry.
