The Challenge: Federal Cloud Computing and FedRAMP

For a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) the federal market holds a tremendous amount of potential. With a compound annual growth rate of 34% and demand forecasted to reach $3.2 billion by 2017 (according to Deltek) the market is very attractive; however, it is not without challenges.

CSPs interested in serving federal organizations must meet rigorous government mandated security requirements as part of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). To ensure CSPs meet these standards they must be audited by a Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) before they can receive Provisional Authorization to Operate (ATO) and start providing cloud services to federal customers.

Selecting an experienced and proven 3PAO is critical to gaining an ATO in an efficient and timely manner. That is why so many CSPs turn to Kratos SecureInfo to assist in preparing for FedRAMP or to conduct a formal 3PAO audit.
