FedRAMP issues first certification

FedRAMP logo

The General Services Administration met its self-imposed deadline to begin certifying companies under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, NextGov reports.

The first security certification for cloud services went to Autonomic Resources, a small business in North Carolina.

FedRAMP's purpose is to pre-approve cloud products and services for security so that agencies purchasing such offerings won't have to evaluate security case by case.
