FedRAMP Rolls Out ‘Tailored’ Baseline for Low-Risk Cloud SaaS Offerings

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program has launched a “tailored” baseline designed to accelerate the process for authorizing low-impact software- as-a-service platforms for government use.

A blog entry posted Thursday says the FedRAMP Tailored baseline covers low-risk systems such as collaboration platforms, project management applications and tools that support open-source code development.

The baseline is also meant to give authorizing officials a standard approach to identify risks associated with the authorization of low-impact cloud offerings.

FedRAMP initially sought public feedback on a draft of the baseline in February, then extended the comment period through April.

The program received more than 330 public comments on the tailored baseline.
