c1secure has worked with the GSA, FedRAMP PMO and JAB in the development of the standards and processes that are the foundational elements of the FedRAMP program as it exists today. Beginning in 2012, we are responsible for guiding 8 of the first 10 CSP’s to successful Authority to Operate (ATO) accreditations (Moderate and High). These accreditations include IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS environments. Our services and platform enabled methodology successfully delivers the accelerated attainment and automated on-going maintenance of CSP Authority to Operate accreditation.
FedCloud Express is our proprietary program for supporting FedRAMP initiatives. FedCloud Express was developed in conjunction with our work enabling many of the first CSP’s in attaining their ATO. With critical focus upon time, simplification, and reciprocity, FedCloud Express provides capabilities to accelerate many pre-authority to operate document intensive and manual procedural activities (IRL, SAP, SAR, FIIW, etc.) as well as provides effective management of FedRAMP continuous monitoring requirements pre and post ATO. Anchored by CISO Sentinel, our security and compliance risk management platform, we have successfully worked in conjunction with the 3PAO community (Assessor and Audit capacities) in the successful attainment for ATO’s over consistently shorter durations.
