Onspring Rapidly Achieves FedRAMP ATO With Help of InfusionPoints

Cloud Compliance, Quick Deadlines, and Upfront Challenges

Onspring GovCloud is a cloud-based, no-code software platform specializing in governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) process automation. Using Onspring GovCloud, customers structure data, enforce data integrity controls, control access, manage workflow, and report on the overall status of key processes and procedures in real time. Onspring Technologies, LLC (“Onspring”), which offers Onspring GovCloud, wanted to expand into the Federal marketplace and achieve a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Authority to Operate (ATO) because of increased interest from potential Federal customers in their software products. The lack of a FedRAMP ATO prevented Onspring from signing with Federal customers. Onspring was looking for a solution to enable its Onspring GovCloud SaaS offering to meet the rigorous FedRAMP requirements.

The Key Challenges They Faced

  • Small workforce thus limiting the ability to focus full-time on the daunting work to reach a FedRAMP ATO
  • Lack of experience in FedRAMP as a whole
  • Meeting tight timelines
  • Needing a fully dedicated FedRAMP and AWS partner for building and operational support
  • Maintaining compliance after the ATO is achieved

A Synthesized Approach with InfusionPoints

Onspring chose InfusionPoints to assist with their FedRAMP ATO journey because InfusionPoints offered the unique partnership they were looking for. Onspring also acknowledged InfusionPoints’ proven track record and strong expertise with FedRAMP requirements related to AWS infrastructure. InfusionPoints was able to collaborate with Onspring and determine the specific needs of their Onspring GovCloud system to obtain a FedRAMP ATO and launch their product into the Federal marketplace for agencies to utilize.
