SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Feb. 29, 2016 – ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), the
enterprise cloud company, today announced the ServiceNow platform has
received FedRAMP certification from the U.S. government that gives
federal agencies the confidence to accelerate their move to the cloud.
This certifies that the ServiceNow government community cloud has
passed the federal risk management process defining standard security
requirements for all cloud providers. This will save individual
agencies the time and money they may have spent doing their own
information assurance assessment.
The Joint Authorization Board (JAB) granted ServiceNow a FedRAMP
Provisional Authorization to Operate (P‑ATO). This federal compliance
opens the door for agencies to quickly meet the U.S. government’s
Cloud First initiative and realize the benefits of cloud‑based service
management. ServiceNow operates the only enterprise service
management cloud platform granted JAB P‑ATO status to‑date.
“Given the rigorous requirements to achieve this level of
compliance, which includes a greater depth of review than that of an
agency‑level authorization, federal agencies can confidently choose
the ServiceNow cloud to streamline their enterprise services,” said
Steve Alfieris, vice president of Federal, ServiceNow. “ServiceNow can
help free federal agencies from the onus of maintaining legacy,
on‑premises tools—where 75% of their IT budgets are now spent. Our
modern and agile platform will help agencies realize their mission
objectives and citizen services.”
Today, more than 100 U.S. federal government customers, such as NASA,
the Department of Energy, and the Department of
Defense (DOD), use the ServiceNow platform to modernize, transform and
innovate enterprise‑wide service delivery. The ServiceNow software
enables agencies to improve services such as IT, human resources and
finance across their enterprise. Agencies can leverage the ServiceNow
cloud platform to rapidly deliver new applications for citizen
services. The ServiceNow platform is a multi‑instance cloud
architecture, which provides customers with unprecedented visibility,
control and security.
FedRAMP is the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.
Cloud systems listed under the FedRAMP P‑ATO path have undergone a
technical review by the FedRAMP Program Management Office and were
reviewed by the CIOs of the General Services Administration,
Department of Homeland Security and DOD, among others. In addition to
P‑ATO, other FedRAMP certification categories include Agency FedRAMP
Authorization, and CSP Supplied Packages. See the full list of
