Mike Hettinger, president of Hettinger Strategy Group, and Rich Beutel, principal at Cyrrus Analytics, discuss changes to FedRAMP and how industry will react.

FedRAMP has seen many changes since its introduction. The latest proposal aims to introduce automation into the approval process, and  improve the program’s website to make information clearer for vendors. Mike Hettinger, president of Hettinger Strategy Group, says that there’s consistent progress being made with FedRAMP.

“Some things have worked out better than others. They recognize that… and they need to do things that improve the program over time. You’ve got 120 or so products that have gone through the FedRAMP certification process, which is great, but if we could have 240, that would be much better,” Hettinger said.”

Rich Beutel, principal at Cyrrus Analytics, says that companies want to see FedRAMP improve, but not become too much of a hassle.

“I think companies are anxious that the program streamline, that it become less expensive, and that it not be viewed as an obstacle for the Cloud Smart policy,” Beutel said.
