BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Smartsheet (NYSE: SMAR), a leading cloud-based platform for work execution, today announced Smartsheet Gov has achieved a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO). With this designation, Smartsheet is approved for use by federal agencies and government contractors and listed in the FedRAMP Marketplace.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and monitoring for cloud services. Smartsheet Gov was prioritized by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) last year for provisional authorization, as part of the FedRAMP Connect program and based on demand from federal agencies.
“Federal agencies are asking for help to modernize workflows and processes, drive the effectiveness and pace of intra- and inter-agency collaboration, and deliver better experiences for citizens,” said Mark Mader, CEO of Smartsheet. “We’re proud to achieve a FedRAMP P-ATO and look forward to helping make this transformation in government a reality.”
Smartsheet Gov is a secure solution that enables federal agencies to organize and scale processes, streamline workflows and automate repetitive but critical tasks, built on Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) GovCloud.
“We congratulate Smartsheet on reaching this important milestone,” said Dave Levy, Vice President of U.S. Federal Government at AWS. “By building on AWS GovCloud, Smartsheet and their government customers may host sensitive data and regulated workloads, while meeting stringent US government security and compliance requirements.”
