A recent press release states, “Coalfire, a provider of cybersecurity advisory services, announced today that the company is offering a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) consulting and engineering service that enables customers to become FedRAMP authorized, using AWS Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO) methodology, in less time than more traditional approaches. Coalfire is one of the security providers to collaborate with AWS in developing the SAO methodology, which helps reduce risk and ease the burden of deploying solutions that meet FedRAMP compliance.”
The release goes on, “AWS customers who need to meet the U.S. federal government FedRAMP requirements for technical readiness and documentation of their system can now work with Coalfire on an accelerated and automated process enabled by the AWS SAO methodology. Customers can use AWS CloudFormation, DevOps tools and leading security practices to gain reusable Automation and DevOps Orchestration techniques for FedRAMP workloads and applications. Customers can deploy FedRAMP preconfigured AWS Cloud and security services to achieve a FedRAMP Authority to Operate (ATO) faster.”
Adam Salerno, Senior Director of Security Architecture at Coalfire, commented, “We’re excited about what this new approach to FedRAMP accreditation can do for our customers… The Coalfire methodology enables AWS customers to build a FedRAMP-compliant solution in less than six months, rather than working through the historical 12+ month readiness process, enabling organizations (which may not have deep cloud expertise) to get to market faster and reduce internal resource burdens.”
