Modus, a leading provider of eDiscovery and Information Governance services, today announced that it has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Ready by the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) of the United States Government.
“Government information is frequently targeted by cyber attackers. The attacks are more sophisticated and frequent. Legacy technologies and outdated processes have failed to provide the necessary protection. Government agencies are increasingly turning to next-generation cloud solutions to solve this problem. We started on this journey because the privacy, legal, social, emotional, industry, economic, and national costs are simply too high to be ignored. We remain committed to delivering the most secure, scalable, and cost-effective cloud solutions for our government and commercial clients. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been instrumental in helping us on this journey. The AWS platform capabilities and partnership support have transformed our business. The FedRAMP PMO was also very helpful in helping us navigate through the numerous technology specifications,” says Steven Horan, Chairman and CEO of Modus eDiscovery.
Per John Crites, CIO of Modus, “We consider it a mandate to deliver highly secure and cost-effective solutions for our government agencies, especially given the volume and sensitive nature of the data they maintain. We are pleased to have our Modus Government Solutions operational. We are leveraging the performance, security, and scalability of our AWS platform to meet the IT needs with the most relevant and critical applications. In addition, Modus is now at the forefront of offering advanced security, analytics, information governance, and machine learning across a common platform.”
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The goals of FedRAMP are to accelerate the adoption of secure cloud solutions through reuse of assessments and authorizations, increase confidence in the security of cloud solutions, achieve consistent security authorizations using a baseline set of agreed upon standards for cloud solutions, ensure consistent application of existing security practices, increase confidence in security assessments and increase automation and near real-time data for continuous monitoring.
