Quzara enables organizations to achieve FedRAMP compliance quicker with our FedRAMP Acceleration & Automation Pack (FAAP).
Secured Success Starts Here
Success starts within the parameters of every company framework. Quzara ensures the safety of businesses by offering incident response, technical assessment, training, and advisory services that help defend against advanced threats, respond to widespread attacks, and enhance cybersecurity practice, controls, and protocols.
FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) is a government wide security compliance program that sets a baseline for cloud products and services regarding their approach to authorization, security assessment, and continuous monitoring. All CSPs (cloud service providers) and CSOs (cloud service offering) that are part of the government supply chain, including but not limited to the Department of Defense and Defense Industrial Base, must obtain this certification.
Our RoleFedRAMP compliance can be challenging, expensive, and time-consuming. That’s where Quzara comes in. Quzara’s FedRAMP Automation Accelerator Pack (FAAP) helps companies achieve FedRAMP compliance faster and in a more efficient manner through tested, well-defined, and automated controls and protocols. FAAP is a cloud native automation solution that does not rely on open-source software or third-party services. With minimal reliance on other products, FAAP is cloud native for Azure Government and AWS GovCloud, enabling faster, automated deployments with inherited controls.

Azure FAAP Services – FedRAMP Moderate Build
Quzara’s cloud security team leverages Azure native policies, blueprints, SCCA and pre-approved, accelerated cloud engineering reference architectures to accelerate compliance deployment when onboarding customers. Preconfigured architectures incorporate multiple Azure services, allowing us to deliver a FedRAMP Moderate baseline service. For example, we utilize Microsoft Sentinel for security monitoring and Microsoft Defender for cloud for all scanning to harden cloud security posture management. We use additional solutions like Azure Activity Directory with conditional access and Azure firewalls for boundary protection. Our team can deploy hardened CIS Level 1 operation systems, docker containers and set-up scanning and ticketing infrastructure when necessary. We also offer continuous maintenance of security controls and POA&M management to FedRAMP PMO and agency stakeholders.
Azure FAAP Services – DoD Impact Level (IL) 4 / 5 Build
Quzara Cloud Security team leverages DISA STIG requirements to build an Azure specific architecture designed to meet DOD Requirements. In 2017, the Defense Information System Agency (DISA) published the Secure Cloud Computing Architecture (SCCA) Functional Requirements Document (FRD) in which it is described how mission owners must secure cloud applications at the connection boundary. All DoD entities that connect to the commercial cloud must follow the guidelines set forth in the SCCA FRD. To meet this requirement, Quzara utilizes our pre-built, automated, and secure deployments which have been hardened to meet DISA STIG and other requirements with four core components:
- Boundary Cloud Access Point (BCAP)
- Virtual Datacenter Security Stack (VDSS)
- Virtual Datacenter Managed Services (VDMS)
- Trusted Cloud Credential Manager (TCCM)
Our solution leverages Microsoft and Azure technologies to help customers meet the SCCA requirements for both DoD IL4 and DoD IL5 workloads that run in Azure. This Azure-specific solution is called the Secure Azure Computing Architecture (SACA), and it can help customers comply with the SCCA FRD. It enables DoD customers, allowing them to move workloads into Azure after they are connected.
Our FedRAMP gap assessments and remediation analysis engagements help organizations meet the stringent requirements of security control compliance.
