Red Hat OpenShift Achieves FedRAMP Ready Designation

Red Hat’s Open Shift service, running on Amazon Web Services, has obtained the “Ready” designation from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program’s Joint Authorization Board.

According to FedRAMP, the designation indicates that a cloud service provider can meet several of the baseline FedRAMP criteria.

The designation supports the goal of achieving a provisional authority to operate through JAB, Red Hat said.

The OpenShift enterprise Kubernetes container platform is designed to build, modernize and deploy applications at scale.

While the company holds a FedRAMP certification for the Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS with sponsorship from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, it is pursuing the JAB authorization to assure agencies that the cloud service offering meets higher security standards than what they require.

According to Red Hat, the JAB grants P-ATO to products without residual risks, which could impact future federal customers.  

Red Hat is currently working with a third-party assessment organization in testing the cloud service as part of the JAB authorization process.
