CSRA achieves cloud services security accreditation

CSRA Inc. (NYSE: CSRA) operating subsidiary, CSRA LLC (formerly CSC Government Solutions LLC), has met security standards and achieved a federal risk authorization management program (FedRAMP) federal information security management (FISMA) high baseline accreditation, the company said.

CSRA is one of three cloud service providers, including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure to meet these standards.

CSRA participated in a pilot program for the new high baseline accreditation, which was initiated and managed by a joint working group including the General Services Administration, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. During the rigorous accreditation process, the company´s cloud service offerings were thoroughly reviewed by an approved third-party assessment organization.

Following successful completion of the accreditation process, CSRA´s ARC-P Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud received the highest level of security in the government cloud marketplace. With the new authorization to operate, the ARC-P IaaS will have the necessary momentum to proceed with accreditation at DoD Impact Level 4/5, which hosts controlled, unclassified information. The company will also work with the Defense Information Systems Agency to connect to DoD´s non-classified internet protocol router network (NIPRNet), which is a system for exchanging sensitive but unclassified information.

CSRA Inc. is a provider of next-generation IT solutions and professional services to government organizations.
