Medallia Prioritized to Work with the Joint Authorization Board Under FedRAMP Connect Program
SAN MATEO, Calif., March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Medallia, Inc. (www.medallia.com), the global Experience Management leader, announced today that it has been prioritized to work with the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) under the FedRAMP Connect program, a major milestone towards achieving full FedRAMP authorization.
Upon review of their business case submission to the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO), Medallia was recognized as an in-demand technology across federal agencies with a “FedRAMP Ready” status demonstrating their capability to meet the strict security requirements in accordance with FISMA, the Federal Information Security Management Act. As part of the approval process, the PMO presented and vetted its analysis of Medallia with the CIO Council, GSA’s Office of General Counsel (OGC), and the JAB CIOs and technical representatives. The focus of this process is to choose cloud service providers that offer services that will benefit the widest variety of federal agencies.
“Achieving prioritization to work with the JAB over the next few months means that Medallia is one step closer to receiving full FedRAMP authorization, which would allow us to serve federal agencies that in turn serve our citizens,” said Brian Michael, General Manager and VP, Medallia Public Sector. “Improving the citizen experience is a major priority within the White House and Medallia Experience Cloud is designed to help agencies serve our citizens better by putting them at the heart of how agencies architect their services.”
