Crestron Electronics announced progress toward a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorization for the Crestron XiO Cloud platform. FedRAMP is a government-wide program that promotes the adoption of secure modern cloud services, emphasizing the security and protection of federal information. The process is completed through a standardized evaluation that includes an assessment to achieve authorization followed by continuous monitoring.

The Crestron XiO Cloud service is a device management software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that allows supported Crestron and third‑party devices across an enterprise to be managed and configured from one central, secure location in the cloud. The Crestron XiO Cloud service may be used to view a device’s status, configure various device and network settings, manage licenses and update device firmware.

Crestron is listed as “in process” on the FedRAMP Marketplace and will become FedRAMP-authorized at the Low-Impact SaaS (LI-SaaS) level once complete. Crestron continues to invest in solutions and necessary certifications such as TAA Compliance, JITC, NIAP and now FedRAMP to support government clients. Although state and local governments do not mandate these certifications, they offer government agencies “confidence that they are investing in a secure and trusted solution.”
