New White Paper Alert: The Benefits of FedRAMP

Do you have questions about FedRAMP?

What is FedRAMP? How will FedRAMP impact my agency? What do I need to know about FedRAMP to procure cloud computing services?

These are only a few of the many questions we are hearing from customers. To address these questions and others, Shamun Mahmud, the security architect of the DLT Cloud Advisory Group, recently published a white paper entitled The Benefits of FedRAMP. The white paper details how federal IT agencies are being impacted by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).

Previously, when an agency decided to implement cloud computing solutions they were required to individually research and vet out the various options based on agency or department requirements.  This process yielded a duplication of efforts across multiple agencies that all have similar base-line requirements for a cloud solution in terms of procurement and information security.  One of the many benefits of FedRAMP is the centralization of the basic authorizing and vetting of Cloud Services Providers (CSP). This one benefit alone frees up countless hours of federal resources for other projects.

The Benefits of FedRAMP also outlines these benefits:

  • Increased security through focused risk management
  • Improved independent accountability
  • Heightened assessment transparency
  • Reduced resource hurdles
