Vienna, VA, February 4, 2016 — Veris Group, LLC, today announced that it served as the Federal Risk Authorization and Management Program (FedRAMP) Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) for the NetComm Beacon Software as a Service (SaaS) platform offering. The comprehensive assessment resulted in a FedRAMP Agency Authority to Operate (ATO) under the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Veris Group conducted the 3PAO security assessment of the NetComm Beacon offering against the NIST SP 800-53 Revision 3 security control baseline.
