Onspring Launches POA&M Automation Software for Federal Agencies to Systematically Improve Security Posture

Onspring is FedRAMP in process as of Jan 2023

Onspring’s new Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M) software consolidates security findings, automates corrective actions for faster risk remediation and acceptance management, and presents real-time analytics for risk-based decision making.

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas, April 25, 2023 — Onspring, a no-code, cloud-based GRC software, announced the launch of its POA&M product as part of its Onspring GovCloud software suite. Recently achieving FedRAMP In Process designation for Onspring GovCloud, the new POA&M software strengthens federal agency cybersecurity efforts through centralized and automated management of findings, corrective action plans, risk acceptances, and detailed real-time reporting.

Based on NIST SP 800-37, “ Risk Management Framework for Information Systems and Organizations,” Onspring POA&M software reduces the time to manage cybersecurity POA&Ms by 40% – helping federal cybersecurity professionals correct deficiencies found during audits and manage the remediation of identified weaknesses, including vulnerabilities that could be exploited by a threat source.

“CISOs of federal agencies are managing a spiderweb of weaknesses, that if not corrected appropriately and timely, could significantly increase government agencies’ overall cyber risk,” said Nichole Windholz, CISSP, CISM, PMP, Onspring Director of Cybersecurity. “Onspring POA&M software helps federal security leaders better understand and prioritize perceived weaknesses, their costs, and resolution times without wasting time compiling reports.”

The new Onspring GovCloud POA&M product means federal agencies can assess their security risk and use process automation to improve the entire remediation and tracking process, delivering overburdened security leaders time savings, more accurate data on risk implications, and easier compliance with security standards.

Onspring GovCloud is the fastest-performing cloud-based GRC software in a FedRAMP environment. With the FedRAMP In Process designation, federal agencies and any organization necessitating a FedRAMP Authorized GRC software can solicit Onspring.

Commercially, Onspring ranks as the #1 GRC software in the InfoTech Research Group leader quadrant three years in a row, maintains 5-star customer reviews on G2 Crowd and Capterra software review sites, and has been consecutively recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Kansas City.
