Gaithersburg, MD – October 30, 2018 – Recovery Point is pleased to announce that its recently completed Readiness Assessment Report for its INcloudGov cloud-based disaster recovery offering for Federal agencies has been approved by the FedRAMP PMO. Recovery Point is now officially designated as FedRAMP Ready.
Established in 2012, FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide risk
management program that provides a standardized approach to security
assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud services among
Federal agencies. It is one of the most complex and in-depth compliance
programs an organization can undertake.
Recovery Point retained a Third Party Assessment Organization to conduct an extensive audit of its INcloudGov service, which led to the FedRAMP PMO granting FedRAMP Ready status to its cloud-based disaster recovery service. Recovery Point will pursue a FedRAMP Agency Authorization in the near future.
“Recovery Point is now among a select group of cloud service providers whose services have successfully undergone the rigorous FedRAMP readiness review,” said Marc Langer, Recovery Point President. “The FedRAMP Ready status provides Federal agencies with assurances that INcloudGov has the critical features and capabilities needed to meet their security needs and reinforces Recovery Point’s consistent focus on a broad portfolio of secure, compliance-based cloud services.”
FedRAMP has helped expedite the adoption of cloud-based solutions for many agencies and enables cost savings by eliminating duplicate agency security assessments of vendor cloud-based services.
Security is built into Recovery Point’s commercial and Federal cloud services from the ground up, with stringent comprehensive controls embedded into each phase of service delivery architecture. Substantially identical security controls and rigorous compliance procedures exist in Recovery Point’s commercial cloud as those engineered into InCloudGov. As a result, commercial clients enjoy similar compliance and security benefits.
