AWS Cloud Services for Compliance

Cloud computing provides flexibility and scalability that is revolutionizing IT. A new category of cloud service offerings can help companies expedite the remediation prerequisites for achieving compliance certifications such as FedRAMP authorization or 800-53/FISMA certification.  Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a leading provider of FedRAMP authorized platforms and services that offer the potential for companies to inherit controls thus removing some of the burden associated with compliance certification.

SecureIT’s status as ATO on AWS partner means we are ready to help you accelerate the technology related components of your overall compliance journey.  On top of compliance strategy and expertise with the ins and outs of the FedRAMP controls and know what assessors expect,  as your advisor,  we will bring training, tools, pre-built CloudFormation templates, control implementation details, and pre-built artifacts that help you realize true acceleration from the use of AWS services.

“We knew it was important to leverage cloud-based technologies, but didn’t feel comfortable choosing solutions on our own. SecureIT provided assessments of several solutions, so that we could objectively weigh the benefits and the risks associated with each vendor.”
