Smartsheet Achieves FedRAMP ‘Ready’ Status
BELLEVUE, Wash., March 11, 2019 - Smartsheet (NYSE: SMAR), a leading cloud-based platform for work execution, today announced that it has achieved “Ready” status as part of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and is now listed in the FedRAMP marketplace for federal agencies and government contractors.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and monitoring for cloud services, and is one of the most stringent compliance processes a vendor can undertake. Smartsheet was selected last year for the FedRAMP Connect program by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB), which prioritized Smartsheet Gov for certification based on demand from federal government agencies.
“Organizations in virtually every industry are looking to Smartsheet to more effectively plan, track, automate, and report on work, and government is no exception,” said Mark Mader, CEO Smartsheet. “This latest milestone means we’re one step closer to being able to help federal agencies simplify and modernize workflows and processes, empowering them to raise the level of service internally, cross agency, and with their constituents.”
Smartsheet Gov is a secure solution built especially for government organizations that helps break down silos across departments, streamline programs and processes, create transparency for constituents, manage long term strategic planning and track assets more effectively. Smartsheet Gov is designed to enable federal departments, agencies and bureaus to organize and scale processes to keep up with the modern workplace.
Smartsheet currently works with federal, state and local bureaus and agencies to collaborate across silos and create transparency in work processes to better serve citizens and communities.
Smartsheet Gov is built on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US-East) and AWS GovCloud (US-West) Regions, Amazon’s isolated cloud infrastructure and services designed to meet U.S. Government and other highly regulated industry security and compliance requirements.
“Having more high-quality solutions authorized for agency use is a critical step in driving digital transformation across government,” stated Teresa Carlson, Vice President, Worldwide Public Sector, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We congratulate Smartsheet for reaching this milestone and are gratified to have supported them via resources and best practices from our ‘ATO on AWS’ initiative, allowing them to build their environment, deploy a general support system, and complete their 3PAO assessment in approximately 90 days vs. the typical 18 to 24 months.”
