FedRAMP audit-ready in less than six months

Cloud service providers (CSPs) seeking business with the federal government must meet FedRAMP cloud security requirements. As an original FedRAMP 3PAO, Coalfire has seen the challenges that CSPs face when pursuing FedRAMP authorization. Many providers lack resources with compliance or cloud experience or their resources have competing priorities. Smaller providers often struggle with the high cost of documentation development and rearchitecting solutions to meet the rigorous standards of FedRAMP. Historically, organizations often spend more than 18 months and $2 million to achieve FedRAMP authorization.

Our NIST advisory and cyber engineering teams have developed a process, in conjunction with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various security partners, to enable CSPs to be audit-ready in less than six months at a fraction of historical costs.

Our Secure Cloud Automation Services remove the challenges of achieving FedRAMP compliance and provide preconfigured AWS and security partner services, as well as ready-made compliance documentation. Our cloud automation services for FedRAMP leverage AWS CloudFormation, Terraform, DevOps tools, and security best practices to create a FedRAMP-compliant environment, allowing CSPs to easily deploy their solutions into a preconfigured AWS GovCloud or AWS East/West cloud infrastructure, greatly reducing the time required to become FedRAMP audit-ready.
