Agencies, cloud service providers, others can leverage FedRAMP content for risk management and process reporting
ASHBURN, Va. – May 8, 2012 – Telos® Corporation has added the recently released FedRAMP baseline security controls to Xacta® IA Manager, the company’s premier risk management framework.
This addition will allow federal agencies, cloud service providers (CSPs) and others to leverage Xacta IA Manager’s risk management and compliance reporting capabilities when offering, procuring, and implementing cloud-enabled solutions through the FedRAMP authorization process.
Launched in 2000, Xacta IA Manager facilitates compliance assessment, continuous risk and sustained compliance management, and security process automation. It is regularly updated with the most current security controls for NIST, DoD and the intelligence community, as well as standards for commercial enterprises.
The nearly 300 FedRAMP controls and control enhancements were drawn from NIST Special Publication 800-53 Rev. 3 with additional provisions specific to the cloud environment. Agencies and CSPs can tailor these controls to their particular requirements much as they would controls for on-premises systems.
“Federal agencies and CSPs alike have an interest in assuring the security of cloud-enabled systems,” said Rinaldi Pisani, Telos vice president and general manager, emerging technologies. “The addition of FedRAMP controls in Xacta IA Manager will provide them a common framework for risk management and reporting for both on-premises and cloud-enabled systems.”
