FAIRFAX, VA / ACCESSWIRE / November 21, 2022 / WidePoint Corporation (NYSE American:WYY), the innovative technology Managed Solution Provider (MSP) specializing in Identity & Access Management (IAM), Telecommunications and Managed Mobility Services (MMS), Analytics & Billing as a Service (ABaaS), and IT as a Service (ITaaS), announced today that the company's Intelligent Technology Management System (ITMS™) has achieved "FedRAMP in Process" status.
The FedRAMP Program Management Officer updated the status for WidePoint's proprietary Intelligent Technology Management System (ITMS™) from "FedRAMP Ready" to "FedRAMP In Process" on the FedRAMP Marketplace with the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) as the sponsoring agency.
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) was established in 2011 to provide a cost-effective, risk-based approach for the adoption and use of cloud services by the federal government. FedRAMP empowers agencies to use modern cloud technologies, with an emphasis on security and protection of federal information.
WidePoint is working with a contracted Third-Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) and ATF to review and test the 616 security controls and sub-controls necessary to achieve FedRAMP Authorization at the FISMA moderate level. WidePoint will have six months to complete the assessment to earn a FedRAMP Authorization status. Once the FedRAMP Authorization is issued, ITMS™ will enter a continuous monitoring phase. WidePoint will continue to work with a 3PAO to annually review a subset of security controls, submit assessment reports to ATF, conduct penetration testing, and assess any required security control changes.
Jin Kang, WidePoint's CEO, noted, "The FedRAMP Authorized status will mean that WidePoint meets all of the stringent security requirements as prescribed by the federal government for cybersecurity. Receiving the Authorized status makes WidePoint much more likely to get additional business from government agencies as well as improves our profile with commercial customers."
Todd Dzyak, WidePoint COO, added, "The FedRAMP Authorized status will enable WidePoint to leverage the authorization package across federal government agencies without having to go through a separate certification and accreditation process for each and every agency. The FedRAMP Authorized status will mean better security, faster implementation, less expense, and most of all least amount of cybersecurity risk for our customers."
