PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Anitian, a security intelligence and automation firm, announced today that the company has completed a FedRAMP deployment for Smartsheet in under 60 days. Anitian's new technology, Sherlock Compliance Automation, is a cloud automation solution that dramatically accelerates compliance in the cloud. Sherlock builds "audit-ready" environments that have all the required controls and compliance configurations in hours.
Until now, if a company wanted to achieve FedRAMP compliance, it had to build and configure a compliant environment with hundreds of security requirements. This process took an average of 12 to 24 months to complete with a price tag in the millions. With Sherlock Compliance Automation, the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company Smartsheet was FedRAMP ready and began their audit in under 60 days (and at a fraction of the cost, too.)
"Security and compliance acceleration are critical to our customers' businesses," said David Levy, Vice President, US Government, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "We're pleased Anitian is helping our customers quickly and efficiently meet security requirements and take advantage of the scale and innovation AWS offers."
Anitian, an Advanced Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN), completed this record-setting engagement as part of the AWS Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO) project. The ambitious SAO project has set the goal of automating more than a dozen common compliance frameworks for clients on AWS.
"We're very pleased with the speed and efficiency of the SAO compliance automation deployment and Anitian's expertise to help us deploy our FedRAMP environment in AWS GovCloud (US)," said Ignacio Martinez, VP of Security, Risk & Compliance at Smartsheet. "We're looking forward to the opportunity to expand our FedRAMP-required customer base after this process is complete."
Anitian had previously delivered an automated compliance environment for the PCI-DSS standard, allowing payment card clients to reach audit-readiness in under 30 days. Sherlock Compliance Automation will add FedRAMP to the growing number of compliance architectures that the firm is able to create exclusively through code and automation on AWS.
"Sherlock is revolutionizing compliance," said Anitian CEO Andrew Plato. "It eliminates all complexity and frustration of building and maintaining a compliant environment. In a few hours, Sherlock can have an entire audit-ready environment up and running on AWS."
Anitian will be demonstrating the technology behind Sherlock at the 2018 AWS re:Invent 2018 in Las Vegas, Nov 26-30.
