A Better Path to FedRAMP Authorization

Get started with FedRAMP


Our FedRAMP advisory service is one in which MindPoint Group works closely with your business and teams to help you prepare for a formal audit and assessment. Assessment services, whether they are a part of a Critical Controls Assessment or a 3PAO Assessment, consist of analyzing, auditing, and then testing the selected controls and determining compliance to the appropriate controls.


Your FedRAMP ATO submission requires an official FedRAMP Approved 3rd Party Assessment Organization (3PAO), like MindPoint Group, conduct your Assessment into the FedRAMP system. Assessments are formal documentation and testing procedures that follow a strict routine set out by the FedRAMP PMO to prove and validate your organization’s compliance with the requirements.

Better Pathway to FedRAMP

When it comes to assessments, remember, your application and environment is unique. MindPoint Group takes the time to understand your cloud service's needs and requirements, and helps you create a roadmap that is affordable and achievable to get your application approved for use within the federal government.

Why is FedRAMP right for your offering? 

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) provides standardization to cloud security for Cloud Service Providers (CSP) to work with the US Federal Government. By attaining a FedRAMP ATO, your company can become eligible to work on high value contracts within the federal government. FedRAMP certification is required to sell cloud services to the US Federal and many state and local governments use it as a benchmark as well.

The process of attaining a FedRAMP ATO is a serious undertaking for CSPs with big rewards at the end. By investing in engineering your cloud service for required security compliance, and investing in your official assessment, you will be able to set your organization apart from your competitors.

Our FedRAMP service offerings are centered on your goals, your application, and your current cybersecurity posture, to provide you a roadmap to achieving a FedRAMP ATO.

Advisory or Assessment?

A challenge of attaining a FedRAMP ATO is often understanding the terminology. One aspect of this challenge is the difference between an Advisory service vs. an Assessment service.

Advisory services help prepare you a formal assessment by a registered Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO). They're two distinct engagements that are required to be conducted by two separate companies. This restriction exists to prevent conflicts of interest when it comes to your final ATO status. In other words, when picking your Advisory service, keep in mind, they will not be able to be your 3PAO.
