Autonomic Resources ARC-P Cloud Receives FedRAMP's First Issued Authority to Operate

CARY, N.C., Dec 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Autonomic Resources, a Government Cloud Service Provider (CSP), has received a Federal Risk Authorization and Management Program (FedRAMP) provisional Authority to Operate (ATO) from the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB) for their ARC-P cloud solution. The FedRAMP program supports the U.S. government's objective to enable U.S. federal agencies to use managed service providers that enable cloud computing capabilities. The program is designed to comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA). FedRAMP is governed by a Joint Authorization Board (JAB) that consists of representatives from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the General Services Administration (GSA), and the Department of Defense (DoD). The FedRAMP program is endorsed by the U.S. government's CIO Council including the Information Security and Identity Management Committee (ISIMC).


FedRAMP provides a streamlined avenue for U.S. federal agencies to make use of cloud service provider platforms and offerings. The FedRAMP program provides an avenue for CSPs to obtain a Provisional Authorization after undergoing a third-party independent security assessment that has been reviewed by the JAB. By assessing security controls on candidate platforms, and providing Provisional Authorizations on platforms that have acceptable risk, FedRAMP enables federal agencies to leverage the security assessment process for the FedRAMP baseline of security controls.

Autonomic Resources now holds a FedRAMP provisional Authority to Operate, a demonstration that Autonomic meets the mandatory security requirements for cloud services housing Federal information. US Government Agencies are rapidly moving towards cloud adoption as the preferred method of compute and FedRAMP certification is critical in positioning agencies to meet Cloud First/Future First and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandates. "Autonomic stands ready to assist US Government agencies to meet both their security and budgetary objectives. The timeliness of our FedRAMP certification will assist federal and state government address serious needs to implement more cost effective, elastic compute platforms, and reduce their Information Technology spending. We are fully aware of the fiscal challenges our customers face and are uniquely positioned to be key to the solution going forward," noted Autonomic Resources' Founder and President John Keese. "Our team's strict adherence to the FedRAMP requirements, coupled with our GSA ATO experience, enabled us to complete what much larger CSP's have yet to accomplish. Further, Autonomic has already begun the application and security process to extend our ARC-P EaaS, PaaS and SaaS offerings." The Autonomic Resources Cloud-Platform (ARC-P) provides U.S. Government customers with a government community Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud offering providing both managed and unmanaged virtual machines. Autonomic does not service any non U.S. Government entities with cloud services and only utilizes highly cleared US citizens for cloud operations.

Autonomic is one of only a few vendors to have met the technical requirements necessary to be awarded two GSA contracts for cloud computing; Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Email as a service (EaaS). Both BPA's demonstrate that Autonomic has met pre-qualified technical and pricing requirements, making the procurement process fast, flexible, and cost-effective for US government agencies. Further, the Autonomic EaaS is already in FEDRAMP processing, which will ensure their ability to rapidly enable their email platform offerings for government use.
