Autonomic Resources' ARC-P™ IaaS Becomes First Cloud Offering to be Leveraged by Outside Vendor for FedRAMP Accreditation

CARY, N.C., Dec. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On December 20, 2013 Autonomic Resources' FedRAMP JAB P-ATO for their ARC-P™ IaaS cloud offering became the first to be leveraged by an outside cloud vendor to achieve a FedRAMP P-ATO. Autonomic Resources provided the underlying infrastructure for Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC)'s SaaS offering as they took it through the FedRAMP accreditation process. The result was a seamless assessment and rapid approval for the SaaS offering.

This approval was the first of its kind under FedRAMP. An accredited cloud has never before been utilized for approval of an outside cloud vendor's application. Applications built on top of Autonomic's existing FedRAMP accredited ARC-P™ IaaS offering inherit controls essential for authorization. This saves cloud vendors seeking authorization precious time and funds, getting them through FedRAMP faster and on to serving valuable federal customers. 

This is one of many FedRAMP and cloud security firsts Autonomic has accomplished in the past year. Autonomic also holds the first FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB) P-ATO (December 2012) and the first Department of Defense P-ATO (April 2013) for its ARC-P™ IaaS offering. "Due to the fact that ARC-P™ was risk assessed by the JAB and carries its JAB P-ATO, our partner, CTC, was able to achieve the highest level of ATO available in the FedRAMP program. This service is known as FedRAMP Re-Platforming. CTC is one of many SaaS vendors working with us in this manner. It's all about speed to market and controlling accreditation costs," stated John Keese President and CEO of Autonomic Resources.
