FedRAMP advisory and 3PAO Assessments

A better path to FedRAMP authorization.

Get started with FedRAMP


An advisory service is one in which your contractor 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.


FedRAMP ATO submission requires official 3PAO Assessment services. 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.

Pathway to success

One size does not fit everyone. Your application and environment is unique. Rather than throw a large quote for services, we take the time to understand your needs and requirements, and then suggest a pathway that is affordable, and achievable.

What is FedRAMP?

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) provides standardization to cloud security for Cloud Service Providers (CSP). FedRAMP certification is required to sell cloud services to the US Federal and many state and local governments. Of course, the process of attaining a FedRAMP ATO is neither fast nor simple. The investment in re-engineering a cloud service for required security compliance, coupled with the cost outlay for the official assessment, is a deterrent for many considering FedRAMP.

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

Advisory or assessment?

A challenge of attaining a FedRAMP ATO is 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 must be done by two separate companies. This restriction exists to prevent conflicts of interest.
