Workiva Achieves FedRAMP Authorization to Operate
Jul. 10, 2018
AMES, Iowa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 10, 2018--Workiva (NYSE:WK), a leader in data collaboration, reporting and compliance solutions, today announces that it has received Authorization to Operate (ATO) under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). Workiva, which worked with the Tennessee Valley Authority on its application, is now a FedRAMP LI-SaaS provider, signifying Workiva’s ongoing commitment to meet and maintain FedRAMP’s stringent cybersecurity requirements.
FedRAMP is a standardized, government-wide approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services to help agencies migrate their existing systems to cloud-based software. The program also allows agencies to follow the Government’s Cloud First policy that mandates cloud services be assessed and considered first when comparing them to on-premise infrastructure options.
With the new authorization, Federal Government agencies can more easily adopt the Wdesk platform to help streamline a wide range of financial analyses and reporting.
“We look forward to helping Federal agencies find new ways to solve complex data challenges,” said Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva. “Earning the Authority to Operate from FedRAMP is a milestone for us and recognizes our work to continuously strengthen the security and safety of Wdesk. These efforts benefit all of our customers."
