The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP enables Agencies to rapidly adapt from old, insecure legacy IT to mission-enabling, secure, and cost effective cloud-based IT.
FedRAMP created and manages a core set of processes to ensure effective, repeatable cloud security for the government. FedRAMP establishes a mature Marketplace to increase utilization and familiarity with cloud services while facilitating collaboration across government through an open exchange of lessons learned, use cases, and tactical solutions.
