Vienna, VA (PRWEB) December 27, 2012
Veris Group, LLC recently announced that it served as the Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) for the first government Cloud Service Provider (CSP) to receive a Federal Risk Authorization and Management Program (FedRAMP) provisional Authority to Operate (ATO) from the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB). Veris Group, one of the nine initial 3PAO service providers under FedRAMP, relied on its team's strategic, technical, and project management expertise to complete the FedRAMP process.
FedRAMP "is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services." The program relies on a 3PAO such as Veris Group to assess a CSP's cloud system and provide a security assessment package for review. The first CSP to receive a FedRAMP ATO was Autonomic Resources, a provider of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings, and who selected Veris Group as its 3PAO.
“Veris Group is pleased to have served as the 3PAO for the independent infrastructure assessment of Autonomic Resources,” noted Veris Group Principal and Co-founder Dave Svec. “Our team’s strict adherence to FedRAMP requirements, coupled with Veris Group’s internal testing methodologies, enabled us to perform an unbiased security assessment with thoroughness and efficiency.”
