Adopting a FedRAMP Authorized accessibility program is a great business decision—even if you are in the private sector. By using the research and evaluations already done by the General Services Administration (GSA), your private sector organization can save time and money by shortening your list of potential cloud service providers to include only the most robust and secure options.
Standardized, Rigorous Evaluation by Experts
In order to receive FedRAMP authorization, cloud service providers (CSPs) must adhere to the SP 800-53 NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) guidelines. The PDF describing these guidelines is 492 pages long, so you could say that they’ve thought of every question you would ever want to ask a potential vendor!
Security for Your Most Sensitive Data
Data security is of utmost importance for the Federal government and for private sector organizations. CSPs with FedRAMP authorization have:
- Continuous monitoring (24/7/365)
- Monthly audits
- Regular penetration testing
- Independent audits by a third-party assessment organization (3PAO)
Anything tested by a FedRAMP authorized accessibility management platform will remain safely and securely in your organization’s control.
In addition to 24/7/365 monitoring and regular audits, a FedRAMP authorized program is required to maintain, update, and service their organization’s systems and software on a regular basis.
FedRAMP CSPs like Level Access are also required to provide business continuity and contingency plans to prove that they are ready to support their customers’ ongoing needs. We have been helping organizations create inclusive digital experiences since 1999 and plan to be around for as long as there are organizations that need our expertise!
