CGI announced on Friday that its Momentum enterprise suite software as a service (SaaS) has been authorized for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB), enabling the company to work within the cloud at federal agencies. JAB granted CGI the authorization after a six-month certification process.
“With this authorization of FedRAMP by JAB, CGI’s Momentum achieved an independent assessment that validates the strength and security of our solution when it comes to cloud deployment at federal agencies,” commented John Owens, senior vice president of CGI’s Enterprise Solutions Group.
“We are proud of our hard-working team that helped us achieve this certification milestone that will open up more opportunities for Momentum at federal agencies,” added Owens.
Momentum is designed to help federal departments, agencies and other organizations across the civilian, intelligence and defense markets increase financial, budget formulation and acquisition efficiencies. Many of the said entities have the authority to operate in cloud infrastructure environments.
CGI was granted the "FedRAMP Ready" status in November that validated Momentum's preparedness to undergo further FedRAMP assessment.
FedRAMP is a government program that sets a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. FedRAMP is meant to save time and expenses by enabling rapid procurement of information systems and services, prevent duplicate assessment efforts and ensure consistent application of information security standards across all government organizations.
