Secure Your Government Cloud Presence with Arlington

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a pivotal federal initiative in the United States that addresses the complex and critical challenge of ensuring the security of cloud computing services used by federal agencies. FedRAMP sets the standard for cloud security by establishing a uniform framework for evaluating, authorizing, and monitoring the security of cloud products and services. Essentially, it streamlines the process for cloud service providers (CSPs) to obtain authorization to operate for their services to government agencies, thus reducing duplication of efforts and enhancing the overall security posture of federal information systems.

FedRAMP's significance lies in its role as a comprehensive security assessment program. It requires CSPs to undergo rigorous security evaluations, including vulnerability assessments, penetration testing, and compliance with an extensive set of security controls derived from NIST Special Publication 800-53. These controls span various aspects of security, from data protection and access controls to incident response and continuous monitoring. With Arlington, we can power your FedRAMP program from start to finish, from the initial readiness assessment to continuous monitoring, and everything in between.

FedRAMP empowers government agencies to confidently adopt cloud services by providing a standardized, risk-based approach to assessing and authorizing cloud offerings. Moreover, it promotes transparency by offering a publicly accessible repository of authorized CSPs, known as the FedRAMP Marketplace, allowing agencies to make informed choices when selecting cloud providers while ensuring the highest levels of data security and compliance with federal regulations.
