FedRAMP Rules of Behavior
(Ivanti FedRAMP SaaS Environment)
Introduction and Purpose
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a Government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud-based services. FedRAMP uses a “do once, use many times” framework that intends to save costs, time, and staff required to conduct redundant Agency security assessments and process monitoring reports.
FedRAMP was developed in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the General Services Administration (GSA), the Department of Defense (DOD), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Many other Government Agencies and working groups participated in reviewing and standardizing the controls, policies and procedures.
The following Rules of Behavior describe security controls associated with user responsibilities and certain expectations of behavior for following security policies, standards, and procedures consistent with FedRAMP principles and guidelines. The Rules of Behavior apply only to customers who purchase Ivanti’s FedRAMP SaaS Environment (“Customer(s)”), along with the Customers’ system administrators, employees, contractors, end-users, and other third parties who are given access to the same. As an external user of Ivanti systems and networks, Customer agrees to abide by these Rules of Behavior and ensure that all users of the FedRAMP SaaS Environment likewise are given notice of, and abide by, the same.
