Rackspace Technology Talks FedRamp and Speeding the Path to ATO

A MeriTalk Federal Feature Q&A with Rackers Brad Schulteis and Lorenzo Winfrey

Build once, use many times is a foundational framework to accelerate IT modernization, drive innovation and maximize the value of investments. In Federal IT, standardizing security and compliance of cloud solutions is underway with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). But the process has historically been time consuming and expensive for vendors, preventing the rapid delivery of cloud-based solutions in support of agency missions.

Since becoming operational in 2012 FedRAMP has authorized 211 products. With over 12,000 more potential solutions out there, the big question is how can FedRAMP continue to evolve and accelerate the process and how can vendors like Rackspace Technology help? And what does the future hold if Congress codifies FedRAMP into law?

MeriTalk sat down with Lorenzo Winfrey, senior product manager, and Brad Schulteis, senior director, global government solutions at Rackspace Technology, to discuss the successes of the program to date, what's next and how vendors like Rackspace help agencies and solutions providers maximize the value of FedRAMP by accelerating the ATO process and the expansion of available cloud solutions.
