The Federal Risk and Authorization Program (FedRAMP) is a risk management program that provides a standardized approach for assessing and monitoring the security of cloud products and services. The FedRAMP Provisional Authorization to Operate (P-ATO) certification was granted to DSFG as a result of the Joint Authorization Board’s (JAB) review. InfusionPoints, LLC, a DSFG partner, developed and delivered DCG operations, security and compliance which was key in helping DCG achieve P-ATO. JD Biggs & Associates Inc. was the Third-Party Assessment Organization for DCG that was responsible for testing security controls, briefing the JAB, and continuous monitoring

Our offerings in cloud help federal agencies respond to changing demands, accelerate transition to agile IT environments with security visibility and above all gain efficiency and become future-ready.”
