Everbridge, Inc., global supplier in critical event management and enterprise safety software applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, has announced that it has achieved a FedRAMP Agency Authorisation for its Everbridge Suite solution. FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorisation Management Program) is a government-wide program that provides a standardised approach to security assessment, authorisation and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
Federal Risk and Authorisation Management Program Authorised by the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO), Everbridge is now officially listed on the FedRAMP Marketplace
“Our FedRAMP initiative has been a multi-year, strategic project with the goal of expanding our overall addressable market for our broad Critical Event Management suite,” said Jaime Ellertson, chairman and CEO of Everbridge. “Meeting the stringent security and reliability standards for FedRAMP Authorisation not only demonstrates our commitment to the Federal market but will also benefit commercial organisations that require the highest levels of security.”
Authorised by the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO), Everbridge is now officially listed on the FedRAMP Marketplace – the central, online portal of approved cloud service offerings available for federal government use. Everbridge’s sponsoring agency, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), and Third-Party Assessment Organisation (3PAO), Coalfire, have determined that Everbridge has met the standards for the 325 controls in the FedRAMP Moderate baseline. FedRAMP Authorisation certifies that Everbridge has passed the rigorous security and risk management review process required to offer its Everbridge Suite solution to federal agencies, a mandate by OMB for any cloud service provider that serves the federal government.
Everbridge’s cloud services
Everbridge currently supports the operational resilience needs of more than 40 federal agencies including the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Social Security Administration. Everbridge’s FedRAMP Authorisation broadens the company’s ability to further proliferate its cloud-based platform for the management of critical events in the federal sector.
In addition to joining an elite group of cloud and SaaS providers that have achieved FedRAMP Authorisation, Everbridge helps ensure its customers operate in a secure environment that complies with a wide array of industry standards and regulations including SSAE 18/ISAE-3402 SOC 2 and SOC3, GDPR and Privacy Shield. Everbridge has also been certified and designated as an approved technology by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under the SAFETY Act (Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology).
Critical event management FedRAMP is designed to save time and costs associated with security assessments of cloud service providers among federal government organisations
“With this important milestone, we are focused on extending our leadership in critical event management, providing government agencies with the industry’s most scalable and reliable platform to rapidly respond to – and even avoid – sudden, unexpected disruptions, while protecting those who serve our nation each and every day,” continued Ellertson.
FedRAMP is designed to save time and costs associated with security assessments of cloud service providers among federal government organisations. Taking a “do once, use many” approach, FedRAMP enables rapid and cost-effective procurement of information systems and services, eliminates duplicate assessment efforts, and ensures consistent application of information security standards across all government organisations.
