FedRAMP Assessment Services

Cloud Service Providers can now leverage 3PAO Sera-Brynn to accelerate FedRAMP Authorization and meet technology challenges.

Cloud Service Providers are leading the digital transformation of the world today. FedRAMP Authorization may be your present-day compliance objective, or it may be one part of a broader strategy to your grow business. Whichever your goal, Sera-Brynn is uniquely positioned to serve as your trusted advisor as you obtain FedRAMP authorization as part of your comprehensive cybersecurity program.

As a third-party assessment organization (3PAO), we can guide you through the multiple FedRAMP assessment stages – from pre-assessment to post-assessment development of a plan of action and milestones.

We also offer services to leverage your FedRAMP assessment to achieve other compliance goals. We map multiple compliance mandates, develop strategies to reduce duplicative compliance efforts, and develop documentation with an eye toward various frameworks such as SOC 2, GDPR, PCI, and the cybersecurity requirements flowing from the U.S. Federal acquisition regulations, namely the FAR and DFARS.

Supplemental services include penetration testing and risk assessments.

Why Choose Sera-Brynn as Your 3PAO?

There are less than 50 certified 3PAOs in the marketplace. Sera-Brynn is one of the very few that are certified to assess to both FedRAMP and PCI (Payment Card Industry) standards. We are pure-play cyber compliance; it’s the only thing we do.

Our security engineers and auditors have performed numerous audits of companies for the purpose of complying with NIST SP 800-171 and NIST SP 800-53 standards. We are known for our work with enterprise-level organizations – particularly in the aerospace and defense industry, as well as higher education – and can scale our services for smaller organizations.

Sera-Brynn audit teams have hands-on, practical experience assessing real cloud environments. We have an in-house technical team that regularly performs penetration testing and vulnerability assessments within the cloud environment. We have been brought on by large organizations to advise on migration to the cloud and cloud architecture needs.

We were founded in 2011 by former members of the U.S. intelligence community who wanted to build a pure-play cyber compliance company with the best analysts and technologists we could find. We have a diverse client base – from start-ups to app developers to manufacturers to academic organizations. We love what we do.
