WalkMe Achieves FedRAMP® Ready Status
Milestone demonstrates WalkMe’s continued commitment to the U.S. Public Sector Market
SAN FRANCISCO, April 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WalkMe Inc. (NASDAQ: WKME), a leading provider of digital adoption solutions, today announced it has achieved Ready status for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) at a Moderate impact level. With this achievement, WalkMe becomes the first digital adoption platform provider listed on the FedRAMP Marketplace as the company advances its existing position in accelerating federal agencies’ technology modernization and IT transformation.
With WalkMe, the Federal Government will be able to accelerate mission success in multiple areas including:
- Digital Government/Digital Services - providing a framework for digital services and improving critical Customer Experience (CX) initiatives for employees and citizens
- Technology & Legacy Modernization - enhancing and renovating legacy platforms and enterprise applications
- Data & Information Management - improving data integrity and quality issues related to interoperability of the government tech stack
- Improving the Government Workforce - increasing employee productivity by eliminating operational drag of poorly optimized software and application
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. It helps the U.S. government adapt from legacy IT to secure cloud-based solutions.
The U.S. federal market is one of the largest and most complex enterprises in the world, which will now benefit from WalkMe’s established success and innovation in a range of markets including healthcare, financial services, education, hospitality, retail, and more.
WalkMe is listed on the FedRAMP Marketplace with Authority to Operate status at the Moderate level estimated in Summer 2023.
“Achieving FedRAMP Ready status signifies an incredible moment in WalkMe’s growth story as we officially enter the U.S. Federal market,” said Billy Biggs, Vice President - Public Sector, WalkMe. “Digital transformation is a top priority for every C-level executive within the federal government. Now more than ever, federal executives are looking for technology solutions that deliver true return on investment and help accelerate mission success in a matter of weeks, not years. The feedback from the federal government ecosystem on the WalkMe value proposition over the last few months has been extremely positive, and we’re excited to be able to offer our solutions while meeting the highest security posture via FedRAMP.”
As part of WalkMe’s progress, the company also expects to move from StateRAMP “active” status to “pending” to further serve the security standards for state, local and higher education clients interested in getting the most out of their technology investments through digital adoption platforms. Being FedRAMP Ready means that WalkMe can offer a full range of its solutions to U.S. federal, state and local government customers, U.S. government contractors, and federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs).
