CSRA, a provider of next-generation IT solutions and professional services to government organizations, today announced it is one of three cloud service providers, including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure to meet rigorous security standards and achieve a Federal Risk Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Federal Information Security Management (FISMA) High Baseline accreditation.
CSRA participated in a pilot program for the new high baseline accreditation, which was initiated and managed by a joint working group including the General Services Administration, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. During the rigorous accreditation process, the company’s cloud service offerings were thoroughly reviewed by an approved third-party assessment organization.
Larry Prior, CSRA’s president and CEO commented:
We are the only pure-play next-generation IT services provider to achieve the FedRAMP FISMA High Baseline accreditation, a result of the brilliant teamwork and collaboration that permeate CSRA. Our ARC-P Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud offering is one of the most security compliant clouds available for our federal civilian and defense customers. This major accomplishment in security enhancement reassures our customers that CSRA is vigilant in providing highly secure government cloud services.
Attaining advanced security levels enables CSRA to leverage its new Integrated Technology Center (ITC) and bid on highly secure commercial cloud services. The ITC is a 96,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility currently being built in Bossier City, Louisiana.
