FedRAMP Ready, Companion Data Services Reaches New Milestone in Cloud Computing Services

May 02, 2016

Columbia, S.C. – Companion Data Services, LLC (CDS) reached a new milestone when we received Ready status from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMPSM) for our service offering. This milestone achievement is a testament to prospective customers that we are prepared to undergo the rigorous FedRAMP assessment and authorization process. Once deemed FedRAMP Compliant, we will be poised to expand our impressive delivery of secure health care IT solutions to federal agencies ready to take their services to our secure cloud.

Through automation, CDS delivers secure end-to-end cloud integration, development, management and maintenance services. “Security is one of the top reasons many organizations are reluctant to move critical applications to the cloud,” said Lola Jordan, President of Companion Data Services. "As government entities move aggressively into cloud computing models, it's more important than ever to arm them with security capabilities and validation that their applications and data are safe with CDS. Achieving FedRAMP-Ready status is a key demonstration of our ability to comply with the highest security standards.”
