FedRAMP Authorization as a Service


The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. While FedRAMP creates a much needed common baseline across the Government, achieving FedRAMP authorization can be a time and resource intensive process, taking well over a year and sometimes, millions of dollars. If your company creates cloud-based applications (SaaS) or platforms (PaaS) and would like to sell to the Federal Government but you don’t want to spend the time or the money it takes to achieve through the standard FedRAMP authorization process, ORock Technologies offers you a solution. It starts by hosting your application or platform within ORock’s Private Autonomous Infrastructure as a Service (PAI) cloud offering. Because your product is hosted in the PAI Cloud and security is managed directly by ORock Technologies, we have the ability to work directly with you and our industry-leading partners Coalfire and Schellman to perform the risk management and third party assessments needed to add you to our System Security Plan (SSP) to quickly achieve your FedRAMP Authorization.

The Benefits to our FaaS approach to FedRAMP Authorization

Faster Time

FedRAMP Authorization can usually be achieved in weeks vs. months or even years.

Significantly Lower Cost

Typically costs a fraction of FedRAMP Authorization done on your own.

Higher Security Operations

Because it is already hosted in an approved high-security PAI installation, support up to impact levels “IL” 4 and 5 can be offered. This means more potential Federal and military customers that can use your product.

Industry Leaders

You provide your service on ORock infrastructure, one of the most high performance and secure cloud infrastructures available anywhere and work with Schellman and Coalfire, two of the most experienced compliance and assessment firms in the U.S. to develop your risk management and 3PAO assessment documentation.

Ongoing Support

We provide 24/7/365 NOC support to help you maintain regulatory compliance within the PAI environment for your applications and support your annual re-authorization of FedRAMP with the 3PAO.
