Get authorized faster, for less

Often, cloud service providers (CSPs) lack the knowledge and resources that FedRAMP demands, from transition planning to environment creation and management. Coalfire provides everything you need to achieve FedRAMP authorization, along with the customization to fit the unique requirements of your business. As the world’s leading assessment agency, we can also provide the assessment services you need.

Due to FedRAMP regulations, we can either provide advise, build, and/or manage services through our FastRAMP 360 solution or our assessment services.


With Coalfire advisory services, you can optimize your FedRAMP strategy through documentation, business case justification, gap assessment, and support. The result is a successful FedRAMP assessment.


With our Accelerated Cloud Engineering (ACE) solution you can deploy a FedRAMP-compliant environment in as little as 60 days and for up to 80% less than historic costs. We can create a secure enclave across AWS, GCP, or Microsoft. And after your environment is built, you own the code.


Our dedicated Cloud Managed Services (CMS) experts act as part of your team, decreasing OpEx while improving your security and risk posture. Unlike other managed services specialists, our knowledge spans FedRAMP, the cloud, and your environment.



As the leading third-party assessment organization (3PAO) for FedRAMP, we assess security controls, conduct vulnerability scans, and perform pen testing to ensure compliance with NIST and FedRAMP controls.

    Coalfire helped us fast-track our path to FedRAMP compliance and save between six and twelve months of work we would have had to do ourselves. Coalfire’s expertise and the AWS Cloud were critical in getting this done."

Frequently asked questions

What is FedRAMP authorization?

FedRAMP authorization allows Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) to sell their products and/or services directly to Federal agencies.

How much does FedRAMP authorization cost?

According to industry experts, the average FedRAMP investment is more than $2M and 18+ months. Fortunately, Coalfire has a portfolio of FedRAMP options that can significantly reduce those thresholds.

What is my FedRAMP return on investment (ROI)?

While every CSP is different, we have seen clients achieve anywhere from 3X to 10X or more of their initial investment in a FedRAMP-built environment.

Can Coalfire help me get an agency sponsor?

Our recommendation is to hire experienced federal sales resources who can help you understand how to: build a pipeline of potential agency customers, establish a solid relationship with the FedRAMP PMO, and understand your competition and differentiators in the FedRAMP marketplace. These steps are critical to finding an agency sponsor.

Should I pursue the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) or Agency authorization path?

It depends. While the Agency authorization path is the most common (and fastest), Coalfire recommends the JAB approach if you have 10+ agencies interested in your product or service.
