How is StateRAMP verified?

The StateRAMP verification model is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53 Rev. 4 framework and modeled in part on FedRAMP. Like FedRAMP, StateRAMP relies on authorized third-party assessment organizations (3PAOs) to conduct independent audits.

What is StateRAMP certification?

A service provider that has proven its ability to securely process, store and/or transmit government data including PII, PHI and/or PCI, and meets and maintains the required cybersecurity policies, can obtain StateRAMP-authorized status. 

What does it mean for a services provider to be StateRAMP-ready?

Service providers with a StateRAMP-ready status meet the minimum StateRAMP requirements.

StateRAMP-ready vs. StateRAMP-authorized: What’s the difference?

StateRAMP-ready and StateRAMP-authorized are two statuses products can obtain at distinct stages in the StateRAMP verification process. Service providers with a StateRAMP-authorized status have completed all security and system validation and the government agency has accepted the provider’s completed security package.

StateRAMP vs. FedRAMP: What is the difference?

StateRAMP is modeled in part after the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), the U.S. federal government’s security assessment program. BlackBerry also offers FedRAMP-authorized services.
