What is a FedRAMP ATO?
As more companies migrate workloads and data to the cloud, security becomes more difficult to manage. With Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and Platform-as-a-Service rapidly overtaking traditional IT architectures, companies open themselves up to more threat vectors. Each cloud services provider (CSP) and its access location creates a new threat vector that places corporate and agency data at risk. The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) provides a unified framework offering cloud service providers a way to use the “do once, use many times” approach providing assurance to federal agencies and nonfederal customers that it manages the data security risks associated with cloud service providers and cloud migration.
