FedRAMP grants second security authorization
The Joint Authorization Board for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program has granted its second provision cloud security authorization – this time to CGI Federal.
The JAB provisional authorization covers CGI’s infrastructure as a service offerings, including virtual machines and web-hosting capabilities, available for agencies to acquire from the General Services Administration’s IaaS blanket purchase agreement, according to GSA Associate Administrator Dave McClure.
This second authorization will further accelerate federal adoption of secure cloud solutions, GSA said.
According to GSA, CGI is the world’s fifth largest independent IT and business process services company and they join the previously approved small business Autonomic Resources on the list of FedRAMP-provisionally authorized CSPs.
