The “Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program” is known as FedRAMP. Federal agencies in the United States use cloud goods and services, and FedRAMP standardizes security evaluation and authorization. FedRAMP aims to guarantee that government data is always safeguarded in the cloud to a high standard.
The required level of security is required by law. There are 19 standards and guidance documents, as well as 14 pertinent legislation and regulations. It is one of the world’s most stringent software-as-a-service (SaaS) certifications.
When cloud technologies started to seriously displace tethered software solutions in 2012, FedRAMP was developed. It developed as a result of the “Cloud First” approach adopted by the US government, which mandated that cloud-based solutions be given priority.
