Smartsheet (NYSE: SMAR), a leading cloud-based platform for work execution, announced at its sold-out ENGAGE ‘18 global customer conference, that it is one of four cloud service providers selected by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Connect program. This means Smartsheet is being prioritized for FedRAMP authorization based on demand from federal government agencies.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, with a goal to protect US citizen data in the cloud. FedRAMP administers a marketplace of approved providers to increase the use of cloud services and facilitate digital transformation across government agencies.
“This is welcome validation for both the security of our platform and the demand for cloud-based work execution tools that exists within the government,” said Ignacio Martinez, Vice President of Risk and Compliance, Smartsheet. “We look forward to working with the JAB to complete the FedRAMP authorization process and having our platform included in the FedRAMP marketplace, helping federal agencies improve how they work.”
