FedRAMP 5th Anniversary

This week we’re excited to celebrate FedRAMP’s fifth birthday! The program has come a long way over the past five years, as we have been able to grow and transform the program to continue meeting our partners’ evolving needs.

FedRAMP achieved initial operational capability in 2012. We launched that year as our primary communication and outreach channel. Since then, we have continued to iterate based on the voice of the customer and have expanded our outreach to include such activities as training, weekly tips, a user-centered marketplace and dashboard, and the Focus on FedRAMP blog.

A few things we are particularly proud of:

**2012** **2017**
**1** authorized Cloud Service Provider (CSP) **82** authorized CSPs (100% year-over-year growth with no funding increase)
**12-18** month timeframe for the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) authorization process **3-6** month timeframe for the JAB authorization process (75% time reduction)
**1** baseline for cloud authorizations: FedRAMP Low/Moderate **4** baselines in response to stakeholder needs and feedback: FedRAMP Low, FedRAMP Moderate, FedRAMP High, FedRAMP Tailored (to be released late summer)
**3** JAB agencies (DoD, DHS, GSA) initially engaged **107** agencies and all **24** CFO Act agencies agencies engaged

We are grateful for the responsive community with whom we work. You have continued to provide invaluable input and feedback along the way. Thank you for helping us improve and grow the program!

As we reach this milestone in our program’s history, we wanted to update our logo and branding as we move into our sixth year:

We worked with our stakeholders to develop a simpler and more flexible logo. As of June 6, this is the official FedRAMP logo, including all reference to and use on and other federal sources of information. We have updated our branding guidance for use of the new logo as well.

We thank you for your continued partnership with FedRAMP.
