CloudCheckr Federal receives FedRAMP designation

CloudCheckr, a total visibility platform that offers public cloud infrastructure, has achieved the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Ready status, and is now listed in the FedRAMP Marketplace.

CloudCheckr successfully completed a Readiness Assessment by a Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO), making its new cloud management platform offering—CloudCheckr Federal—available for federal agency sponsorship.

By adopting the CloudCheckr Federal cloud management platform, agencies gain comprehensive visibility into their cloud resources, usage, and costs with automated invoicing, billing, chargebacks, and automated recommendations for budget management available to IT finance teams.

FedRAMP provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and monitoring for cloud services, and is one of the most rigorous compliance processes a vendor can undertake.

The FedRAMP Ready designation provides potential federal agency sponsors increased confidence that the offering can achieve FedRAMP Authorization.

CloudCheckr, already operating in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Secret Region for cloud-based workloads up to the Secret U.S. security classification level, and in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions, adds FedRAMP Ready status as government agencies accelerate their IT modernization mandates.

This process has often been limited by a software vendor’s ability to achieve the highest standards for security and compliance required to work directly with the federal government.

Now with CloudCheckr Federal, public sector customers get access to SaaS-based cloud infrastructure management, while adhering to NIST 800-53 requirements, easing the way for procurement.

“Our public sector customers have long used the CloudCheckr solution, in conjunction with managed service partners, to track their cloud IT budget and manage their spend with cloud providers in a single platform,” said Dan Stroman, senior director of public sector, CloudCheckr. “With FedRAMP Ready status, we are empowering all public sector organizations to connect to cloud resources and begin their IT transformation with immediate results.”
