StateRAMP Gap Assessments, Consulting, Policy Templates
Arlington is a leading provider of StateRAMP scoping & gap assessments for organizations all throughout North America. When performed correctly, our StateRAMP scoping & gap assessments provide a clear understanding of areas to remediate, action plans to put in place, validation measures for ensuring remediation was successful, along with a scalable, effective continuous monitoring program. The ultimate goal is to assist your organization in achieving StateRAMP security status of Active, In-Process, Pending, Ready, Provisional, or Authorized, and with our StateRAMP scoping & gap assessments, we’ll get you there.
As part of the StateRAMP scoping & gap assessment, we’ll deliver a Prioritization Plan for Remediation (PPR) detailing control gaps found, the necessary tools and solutions needed to remediate all gaps, along with providing helpful documentation – such as our policy templates – for finishing the job. Regardless of who performs remediation (us, you, or a collaborative effort), the PPR serves as a highly effective roadmap for helping ensure all gaps are worked and closed out.
Remediation & Documentation
Achieving StateRAMP security status of Active, In-Process, Pending, Ready, Provisional, or Authorized requires an exhaustive number of NIST 800-53 policies, procedures, programs, and plans to be written. With Arlington, we have years of experience doing just that for our valued client base for FedRAMP and for all compliance measures related to the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF). And because StateRAMP is developed on the NIST SP 800-53 framework, our world-class Arlington Security Portal (ASP) has you covered with all the essential documentation.
StateRAMP RFP Services
Want to find the best possible 3PAO StateRAMP assessor, at the best price, one that’s truly the best fit for your organization? Then consider Arlington’s 3PAO RFP services. Picking the wrong assessor can cost you an incredible amount of time and money, and potential delays in – or even worse – failing to earn Authorization to Operate (ATO) designation.
What we offer in terms of 3PAO services is developing well-written Request for Proposal (RFP) services whereby we actively solicit assessors for bids, then take the time to interview all assessors, and ultimately, hand select the best 3PAO based on your selected criteria (i.e., pricing, timing, referrals, etc.). Picking the wrong 3PAO StateRAMP assessor can be a disaster, this we know from unfortunate events that have played out in the marketplace for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). And this is a primary reason Arlington decided to move forward with 3PAO RFP services.
Complete Project Management
Frustrated with the StateRAMP authorization process that can be so incredibly challenging, time-consuming, and complex? With Arlington, we can successfully project manage your entire StateRAMP authorization process from beginning to end, creating an efficient, lockstep process that removes many of the unfortunate missteps so often found during these engagements.
Obtaining StateRAMP security status of Active, In-Process, Pending, Ready, Provisional, or Authorized is a significant commitment with many moving parts. You need a proven, trusted partner for managing the entire process from beginning to end. While the 3PAO assessor – and the assessment process itself - is an important component in terms of earning StateRAMP authorization, many other participants are vital – and greatly needed – for ensuring the overall StateRAMP process is successful. Arlington provides the expertise, knowledge – and manpower – for project managing the entire StateRAMP process from A to Z.
