Smartsheet Gov achieves FedRAMP P-ATO

by Ignacio Martinez

Bellevue, Wash., August 15, 2019 -- Today we announced Smartsheet Gov achieved Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). This means Smartsheet is now the only work execution platform to be fully approved for use by federal agencies and government contractors, giving them the ability to plan, capture, manage, automate, and report on work at scale.

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The FedRAMP Marketplace lists authorized offerings to help agencies research and select secure cloud providers available for use.

Smartsheet Gov was prioritized by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) in late July 2018 for authorization, as part of the FedRAMP Connect program based on demand from federal agencies. Gaining admittance to the marketplace with JAB oversight is one of the most complex and stringent compliance processes a cloud services provider can undertake — achieving authorization is a major milestone I’m proud Smartsheet Gov reached today.

Streamline Initiatives and Support Communities

Federal agencies continue to feel the impact of getting more done with fewer resources. Allowing them to modernize workflows and processes, and increase productivity and cross-agency collaboration, means they can be more effective at supporting their communities and citizens.

Smartsheet currently enables more than 600 federal, state, and local bureaus and agencies to operate with increased agility, manage work in real time, and make better decisions. Join the National Institutes of Health, National Parks Service, US Department of Veterans Affairs, and NASA — all of which are breaking down silos and creating transparency in work processes with Smartsheet.

Scale Securely With Peace of Mind

Built on AWS GovCloud, Smartsheet Gov offers departments, bureaus, and agencies the assurance that they’re choosing the most secure cloud available today. Designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud, AWS GovCloud adheres to compliance standards such as Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and more.
