Respond Software Embarks on FedRAMP Journey to Drive SOC Automation for Government Agencies, Names Earthling Security 3PAO and MSSP
Earthling Security and Respond Software are excited to announce a new partnership that will enable Respond Software to be FedRAMP certified and sold through Earthling Security to help government agencies automate their cybersecurity monitoring and incident response.
To help government agencies achieve their missions, there has been a move towards digital transformation and cloud adoption. Critical components of this cybersecurity program are consolidated visualization of the agency’s cybersecurity posture and the collection and analysis of cybersecurity data to enable faster incident response. The only way to do this at scale and cost-effectively is to automate continuous monitoring and incident response while following security controls based on the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).
Earthling Security is Federal Systems Integrator and an SBA 8(a) certified small business that delivers services around cybersecurity, cloud security, DevSecOps, and security analytics. Earthling is an accredited FedRAMP 3APO advisor and conducts conformity assessments to demonstrate that cloud computing services offered by vendors meet specified security requirements. These assessments are conducted in accordance with the latest revision of NIST 800-53 security control standards and the additional FedRAMP controls issued by GSA.
Earthling is also an MSSP focused on security operations and compliance management.
Yusuf Ahmed, President and CEO at Earthling Security, notes that the time is right for innovative techniques that make continuous monitoring accessible for the federal government.
“Earthling Security partnered with Respond Software because the government needs to use AI for advanced and automated decision-marking to identify threats, reduce the attack surface and respond quickly to attacks. As an MSSP focused on FedRAMP controls, the Respond Analyst gives us a clear picture of security control management and a complete window into incident response. We’re excited about offering a fully managed, turn-key way for agencies to onboard to a secured and resilient cloud, acquire and maintain their Authority to Operate or industry accreditation. It’s just so easy with the combination of the Respond Analyst and our deep expertise in cloud, security, and automation. Agency leaders can focus on what’s important to them and realize cost savings.”
With Earthling Security and Respond Software, organizations will be able to unite their multi-vendor security control systems and stitch together this disparate data into a workable framework for investigating alerts, identifying real and actionable incidents, and triaging them for immediate follow up by security analysts. This automation will free up security teams by reducing time wasted chasing down false positives or scoping an incident and simplifying security engineering with pre-built advanced analytics models. Thus, building a foundational piece for government agencies’ continuous monitoring capabilities at an affordable price.
