Sumo Logic achieved the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Ready designation, and is now listed in the FedRAMP Marketplace for federal agencies and government contractors.

This FedRAMP Ready designation applies to a specific multi-tenant Sumo Logic environment tailored for federal customers and organizations that serve the federal market. In order to achieve the Ready designation, Sumo Logic underwent a rigorous assessment of critical security controls to ensure that federal organizations can leverage the unified Sumo Logic platform to build, run and secure their modern applications and cloud infrastructures.

FedRAMP is a government-wide compliance program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and monitoring for cloud services. Cloud service providers with a FedRAMP Authorization have successfully undergone a stringent in-depth evaluation of their data security safeguards and technology, and must continue to comply with FedRAMP requirements in order to retain their authorization status.

“The world is moving toward a digital-first mentality and there is a massive shift to the cloud taking place within the federal community,” said George Gerchow, CSO, Sumo Logic. “Federal agencies understand the necessity to transition from legacy on-premises systems to more scalable and secure, cloud-based architectures; however the challenge today is that options are limited. While our pursuit of FedRAMP Authorization is a work in progress, the FedRAMP Ready designation is a testament to our dedication towards maintaining a strong robust security posture as well as continuing to listen to our customer’s needs. With Sumo Logic, federal organizations gain the continuous intelligence and insights needed to securely migrate their workloads to the cloud, adopt DevSecOps practices and address the shared responsibility of the public cloud model.”

The FedRAMP Ready designation is a critical first step in Sumo Logic’s commitment to achieving a FedRAMP Authorization. This not only gives existing customers confidence in our security posture, but will also make it easier for U.S. federal agencies to adopt Sumo Logic services.

The Sumo Logic federal environment, in U.S.-East 1, is a fully functioning multi-cloud capable ecosystem set up specifically to serve the federal market. With Sumo Logic, customers are protected against concerns around data protection, privacy and security, including those regarding cardholder data under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and application security under the NIST 800-53 Framework.
