If you are considering getting your applications FedRAMP authorized, you are facing a long and an expensive process. Having been through this process ourselves, and by working with more than 17 ISVs, we know that the FedRAMP process can take you anywhere from 1 to 2 years and cost upwards of 1 million to 2 million dollars if you do it yourself.
For example, in order for you to get a FedRAMP authorization you’ll need to:
Hire or contract FedRAMP experts for the entire process
Implement the balance of 231 security controls that are not implemented at the software level by Azure (Azure IaaS/PaaS covers 94/130 out of a total of 325 FedRAMP Moderate
Undergo a FedRAMP Readiness Assessment
Secure a US Government Agency Sponsor (or the JAB)
Develop all the documentation (typically more than 800 Pages) to be approved by Agency (or the JAB)
Contract for a 3PAO Assessment
Secure the US Government Agency authorization (ATO)
