FedRAMP: The Gold Standard of Cloud Security

When the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) required a framework for secure usage of cloud services they came together and created FedRAMP - the world's most comprehensive and strict cloud security standard. Now available for enterprises by CyLogic.

Why is FedRAMP HIGH important to commercial companies?

Criteria (CC)

Common Criteria (CC) is an international set of specifications and guidelines designed to evaluate information security products and systems. Common Criteria, officially known as the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, was developed to certify that products and systems meet a pre-defined security standard for government deployments. Security products that have undergone successful testing and evaluation are awarded Common Criteria certification. The standard was developed by the governments of the U.S., Canada, Germany, France, the UK and the Netherlands in 1994.

What is FedRAMP?

The Federal Risk and Authorization and Management Program (FedRAMP) evaluates cloud providers through a comprehensive and rigorous process. The framework is based on a uniform set of standards standards for assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring to determine if a cloud product or service has adequate information security controls. Using this standard, federal organizations were able to increase their security posture, and save considerable time and expense.


The FedRAMP framework was developed with input from security experts from multiple departments and agencies including the Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), General Services Administration (GSA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
