New cloud security guidance is out from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management program, or FedRAMP. It includes new security controls and templates for agencies and cloud service providers to implement the new controls.

Right now federal agencies have 16 different FedRAMP-certified cloud options. Goodrich says those 16 options are already in place in 160 locations across the federal government.
