NetDocuments, a purpose-built native cloud document management and content services platform, has received authorization under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). Now, both government agencies and departments, as well as private entities that do business with or on behalf of the government, can benefit from our highly secure, reliable, user-friendly platform.
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) created FedRAMP in 2011, and FedRAMP operations are managed by the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO). It was the first security authorization program under the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA).
The mission of FedRAMP is to promote “the adoption of secure cloud services across the federal government by providing a standardized approach to security and risk assessment for cloud technologies and federal agencies.” The program created a standardized approach to:
Evaluating cloud service providers can often be a lengthy process. The intent of the FedRAMP program is to replicate the validation process easily and seamlessly: do once, use many times. Essentially, the FedRAMP program accelerates the due diligence and evaluation of cloud service vendors to ensure their security meets defined government standards. All parties benefit from this approach as it saves money, time, and effort. Cloud service providers that want to work with federal agencies are required by law to go through FedRAMP.
The US government has a “cloud first” policy. Each agency is supposed to implement cloud services whenever it can find a secure, reliable, and cost-effective provider. Does that mean every federal agency has jumped at the chance to implement cloud-based products and services? Not quite.
Some agencies still rely on legacy on-premises solutions that have several underlying challenges and problems. Government agencies using on-premises solutions must:
To say all this is a burden is putting it lightly.
The purpose of the cloud first policy is to push agencies to work with credible cloud service providers that take on these burdens. NetDocuments is ready and waiting to help federal agencies transition to the cloud and leverage our platform to improve your business operations. Here is how we can help you:
