NetworkNewsBreaks – Knightscope Inc. (NASDAQ: KSCP) Earns “In-Process” Rating from US Government FedRAMP Program
Knightscope (NASDAQ: KSCP), a developer of advanced physical security technologies committed to enhancing U.S. security operations, announced that as part of its efforts to pursue Authority to Authorize (“ATO”) in the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (“FedRAMP”), the company achieved “In-Process” status. A government-wide program that promotes the adoption of secure cloud services across the federal government, FedRAMP provides a standardized approach to security assessment and authorization, and provides continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
Knightscope has been working to design a secure, hardened environment specifically to support government clients; as part of those efforts, the company built a strictly controlled version of Knightscope’s product offering, which was tested by a FedRAMP authorized third-party assessment organization using state-of-the-art cyber technologies. The company noted that only 262 organizations with cloud-based services have earned Authority To Operate (“ATO”) recognition, with only 83 of those having reached the in-process level.
“One of the key roles of government is to protect its citizens, so it is critical that we provide them with the most advanced public safety technologies available,” said Knightscope EVP and chief intelligence officer Mercedes Soria in the press release. “The FedRAMP process is arduous, but we believe it is a great investment of time and resources as it ensures our cybersecurity efforts are top notch. I’m looking forward to continuing to build even more cutting-edge technology to support our mission to make America the safest country in the world.”
