First woman-owned small business gets FedRAMP nod

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program approved another cloud service provider last week, as NetComm, a cloud-based solution company, became the first woman-owned small business to receive FedRAMP certification.

NetComm's Beacon software-as-a-service platform was put through the cloud security framework review process.  Beacon allows users to create customized dashboards and  leverages Amazon Web Services' GovCloud infrastructure as a service (GovCloud also has FedRAMP approval). The National Institutes of Health provided the agency authority to operate, and Veris Group conducted the required third-party assessment for the certification process.

There are now some 60 different cloud services that have been certified as FedRAMP-compliant.
