CARY, N.C., Jan. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In adherence of the FedRAMP Ongoing Assessment & Authorization process requirements, Autonomic Resources has successfully completed their first annual FedRAMP security assessment. Autonomic's ARC-P™ Community and Private IaaS platforms were the first FedRAMP accredited clouds starting in December of 2012; therefore, they were the first to be required to complete the re-authorization process, certified again by an independent Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO).

In this reassessment, over 100 NIST controls were independently (re)inspected by our 3PAO, assuring that Autonomic's ARC-P™ cloud had been and was continuing to operate within the acceptable FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB) risk levels.

This successful and timely re-assessment validates Autonomic's sustained commitment to holding their landmark FedRAMP P-ATO and demonstrates that they will continue down the path of timely reporting through FedRAMP continuous monitoring. ARC-P™ remains a JAB authorized system that meets the rigorous standards and risk tolerance levels set by FedRAMP. "Having been the first authorized CSP by FedRAMP and DoD, has allowed us to work cooperatively with the FedRAMP PMO office in yet another new process with our Federal partner. It truly was a private / public effort with good lessons learned along the way. It is a process that we will repeat again with the addition of ARCWRX™, our PaaS based on OpenShift by Red Hat, an Object Storage solutions by Hitachi, the addition of multi-cloud and big-data platforms all in 2014," stated John Keese President and CEO of Autonomic Resources.
