ControlCase, the leading provider of IT Security Certifications and Continuous Compliance Services announced their latest achievement – StateRAMP Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO). This achievement qualifies ControlCase to evaluate cloud-based solutions for state and local government agencies as a State Risk and Authorization Management Program (StateRAMP) Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO). In order to achieve 3PAO status, ControlCase underwent a rigorous assessment conducted by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) to confirm compliance with the ISO 17020:2012 accreditation requirements.
StateRAMP is an independent not-for-profit organization that helps state and local governments reduce cybersecurity risk from their cloud service providers by standardizing cloud security requirements in alignment with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 and individual state cybersecurity standards. StateRAMP partners with FedRAMP 3PAO organizations to assess cloud service providers (CSP) for accreditation.
“StateRAMP reduces cybersecurity risk by providing a common approach to verifying cloud security,” said Kishor Vaswani, Chief Strategy Officer at ControlCase. “ControlCase is proud to be accredited to StateRAMP and looking forward to partnering with cloud-based solution providers to evaluate their compliance to the cyber-security standard.”
“As the state and local government has increased their focus on managing third-party risk, this accreditation validates ControlCase’s commitment to assisting organizations to achieve and maintain their security and compliance goals in order to attract more business,” said Vaswani.
“We are thrilled to add StateRAMP accreditation to our portfolio of assessments and encourage cloud service providers to consider StateRAMP compliance as a necessary approach to streamlining the acquisition process for state and local government agency contracts.”
