Sera-Brynn Renewed Acrediation as a FedRAMP 3PAO

Sera-Brynn Reaccredited as a FedRAMP 3PAO-01

Sera-Brynn, LLC, announced today it has successfully renewed its accreditation to evaluate cloud-based solutions for federal government agencies as a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO).

After a rigorous assessment by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), Sera-Brynn remains one of fewer than 40 accredited assessors in the nation certified to help cloud service providers (CSPs) who want to deliver services to the federal government. FedRAMP is a government-wide program designed to support the federal government’s “cloud-first” initiative by providing a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud-based services. Sera-Brynn Assessors help CSPs develop implementation programs to adopt cybersecurity and privacy controls that meet the FedRAMP standard based on NIST Special Publication 800-53 Rev 4.

“It’s imperative that we maintain the availability of this critical assessment and compliance service to the larger technology market. Current geopolitical conditions notwithstanding, we’ve seen 300% increase in year-over-year requests for FedRAMP support from our North American-based clientele,” said Rob Hegedus, CEO of Sera-Brynn. “The broader market is adopting a more government-focused strategic approach, and cybersecurity-related regulatory service providers such as Sera-Brynn are an important part of ensuring that transition is technically compliant and financially efficient.”

With the growing threat of cyber-attacks, Sera-Brynn recommends all CSPs even if they do not support the federal government, strive to meet the NIST 800-53R4 standards and seek a FedRAMP or StateRAMP certification to make their services more competitive.

Sera-Brynn received the original accreditation to become a FedRAMP 3PAO in June 2017.
