KCG Helps Cloud Provider Akamai Gain FedRAMP Approval; Maryann Hirsch Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Cloud Computing, ExecutiveBizKnowledge Consulting Group has audited Akamai Technologies‘ cloud-based offerings as an independent third-party assessment organization for the Federal Risk Authorization Management Program.

Akamai secured FedRAMP provisional authorization to offer cloud services to government agencies after passing the audit, KCG said Tuesday.

“As one of only a handful of companies to receive a Provisional ATO through FedRAMP, this certification opens up significant opportunities for us in the federal space,” said Tom Ruff, public sector vice president at Akamai.

Maryann Hirsch, president of KCG, said the company aims to help the government acquire cloud computing products and services.

The FedRAMP program requires third-party auditors to ensure that a cloud service provider’s information systems comply with security requirements prior to granting agencies access to those products.

Matt Brown, KCG vice president of homeland security and cyber solutions, said FedRAMP recipients must continuously monitor their offering to improve its security posture.
