Providing FedRAMP Assessment and Advisory Services
Is your organization authorized to provide cloud computing services to the federal government? Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) interested in serving federal organizations must meet rigorous government mandated security requirements as part of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). 

To ensure CSPs meet these standards, they must be audited by a Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) before they can receive Provisional Authorization to Operate (ATO) and start providing cloud services to federal customers. Over 300 security controls, thousands of pages of documentation and a rigorous assessment make up the challenging path to a cloud service authorization.

Selecting an experienced and proven 3PAO is critical to gaining an ATO in an efficient and timely manner. That is why so many CSPs turn to Kratos SecureInfo to assist in preparing for FedRAMP or to conduct a formal 3PAO audit. Kratos SecureInfo is an accredited FedRAMP 3PAO certified by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to perform security assessments of CSPs. We have performed extensive information security work with industry leading CSPs, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft, Dell and many more. 

Kratos SecureInfo provides FedRAMP advisory or assessment services for public, private, community and hybrid cloud service offerings including: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).  We work with CSPs to ensure their readiness to proceed with the 3PAO assessment process, as well as conduct the actual assessments to secure the cloud with confidence.

We guide organizations through the most streamlined and cost-effective path to obtaining an ATO, and we provide an effective continuous monitoring program to maintain the ATO over time. 

Cybersecurity Testing

Our testing services mitigate cloud security risk by helping to assure that your systems and information are secure. As part of the testing, we deliver a report that summarizes a clear set of findings and recommendations for improvement, with an emphasis on actionable breach prevention. 

Our team specializes in technical testing to include:

Penetration Testing – execute deliberate attacks to test system integrity
Vulnerability Assessments – perform scans on systems to identify vulnerabilities

Kratos SecureInfo also provides continuous monitoring services to help CSPs maintain their FedRAMP-ATO. We provide on-going continuous monitoring services on a quarterly, annual or every three and five year basis to satisfy FedRAMP requirements. 

This includes mandatory services to be performed by a 3PAO, such as assessing a subset of controls, performing penetration testing and scanning operating systems/infrastructure, web applications and databases on an annual basis.
