IdeaScale, the leading idea management solution for government, announced it has secured its 8th Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) Authorization to Operate (ATO). IdeaScale is the only FedRAMP certified idea and innovation management software, and each new designation solidifies their standing as an industry leader.
Their 8th FedRAMP ATO comes from Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) Identity Management Enterprise System (DIMES). DCSA-DIMES will now be able to fully use the IdeaScale platform to foster workforce engagement, innovation, and continuous improvement across the agency.
The government-wide FedRAMP program provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services as a growing number of agencies migrate their existing systems to the cloud. FedRAMP helps government entities buy cloud services with confidence in the security levels of the services and their underlying software.
“Each new FedRAMP ATO is a sign of our continued commitment to our government work,” says Tim Sussman, SVP of Public Sector at IdeaScale. It’s no easy task to advance in one of the most rigorous cybersecurity and compliance evaluations available to date, but Sussman says “We’re proud to provide secure and high-performing software to enable government agencies to build a better future.”
The company’s progression in FedRAMP status keeps with its long track record of supporting the U.S. federal government. Agencies use the software to respond to current challenges in government, meet the demand for rigorous efficiency, continuously innovate and improve, and engage directly with citizens.
