iWorks begins FedRAMP assessment for Cloud Solutions April 2017!

April 26, 2017 – iWorks is currently seeking FedRAMP certification and expects to receive certification in July 2017! FedRAMP aims to standardize security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. By implementing FedRAMP, the Government has seen reductions in redundancies, inconsistencies, inefficient processes, risk, and costs. FedRAMP authorization consists of three primary steps:

  1. Security Assessment: Leverages a standardized set of requirements, in accordance with FISMA, using a baseline set of NIST 800-53 controls to grant security authorization.
  2. Leveraging and Authorization: Allows Federal agencies to view security authorization packages in the FedRAMP repository and leverage the security authorization packages to grant security authorization at their own agencyies.
  3. Ongoing Assessment and Authorization: Enables continual assessment and authorization activities to maintain certification and security authorization.
