What is FedRAMP?

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program. It provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. This approach uses a “do once, use many times” framework that saves cost, time, and staff required to conduct redundant Agency security assessments. In short, FedRAMP supports the US Office of Management and Budget’s goal to reform technology management with a Cloud First Policy that allows US Agencies to rapidly adapt from old, legacy IT to mission-enabling, secure cloud services. This enables them to better serve agency mission, drive improved citizen services and increase cyber security.
