For Immediate Release
Veris Group supports stand-alone enterprise mobility management (EMM) leader with FedRAMP compliance
Vienna, VA, December 16, 2016 — Veris Group LLC, one of the leading mid-sized cybersecurity services firms in the country, today announced that it served as the Federal Risk Authorization and Management Program (FedRAMP) Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) for the MobileIron Government Cloud Software as a Service (SaaS) offering. FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The comprehensive assessment resulted in a FedRAMP Agency Authority to Operate (ATO) under the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Veris Group conducted the 3PAO security assessment of MobileIron’s Government Cloud against the NIST SP 800-53 Revision 4 security control baseline. In addition to the security control assessment based on NIST SP 800-53 Revision 4, the assessment also included a comprehensive penetration test of the software code base, a detailed source code review, and vulnerability scans of all operating systems, network devices, databases, and web applications.
Veris Group, the first 3PAO to successfully inspect FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB)-approved, Agency-approved, and Cloud Service Provider (CSP)-supplied solutions, and the only 3PAO selected to assess multiple cloud systems in both the FedRAMP High and Accelerated pilot programs, worked closely with MobileIron, the USPS, and the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) to efficiently navigate the FedRAMP process.
