UiPath , a leading enterprise automation software company, announced its partnership with Peraton, a leading mission capability integrator and transformative enterprise IT provider, to deliver the UiPath Business Automation Platform as a cloud-based managed service to high-security environments within U.S. intelligence, defense, and civilian agencies.
Peraton specializes in helping essential government agencies overcome daunting challenges that require fast, reliable, and secure technology solutions. These valued customers require the highest levels of compliance and security to complete their missions. This partnership enables it to take advantage of the UiPath AI-powered automation platform in sensitive environments as a managed service – either via cloud or on-premises with expert support in automation scripting, implementation, and management. As a result, the customers will be able to rapidly scale in any mission area, take full advantage of higher productivity and increased visibility, enjoy enhanced insights with real-time situational intelligence, advance their digital transformation, and improve business outcomes within their unique customer environments.
Through this partnership, UiPath and Peraton allow customers to create and execute on automation strategies, drive mission agility, and orchestrate transformational impact for highly sensitive secure workloads. The AI-powered UiPath Platform offers unprecedented time-to-value by combining the leading robotic process automation (RPA) solution with a full suite of capabilities to understand, automate, and operate end-to-end processes.
“Automation can be a potent 'arrow in the quiver' for civilian, defense and the intelligence community—as well as for American businesses and citizens—as we move forward into a future of renewal, resilience, and readiness,” said Mike Daniels, Senior Vice President of Public Sector at UiPath. “With automation, implementations happen fast, and improvements are immediate. Our partnership with Peraton will enable us to jointly push automation out to the edge to effect where services are delivered, which leads to better outcomes and improved employee experiences.”
“Our partnership with UiPath will leverage the power of automation, AI, and machine learning to help tackle missions of consequence at greater scope and scale than before,” said Mike King, Chief Growth Officer at Peraton. “As national security continues to evolve, this partnership helps ensure our customers are utilizing market-leading solutions to achieve transformational impact and meet the challenges of tomorrow.”
Automation can be deployed to increase quality, reduce human error, increase compliance, strengthen controls environments, and add new services to an organization’s portfolio. The White House Executive Order (EO) on Transforming Federal Customer Experience and Service Delivery to Rebuild Trust in Government instructs federal agencies to modernize government programs and find ways to reduce costly, time-consuming administrative tasks—which are achievable in automation first organizations. Additionally, since the launch of the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy, government agencies have been migrating to the cloud to achieve scalability and reduce costs.
UiPath and Peraton combined to drastically improve processes at a U.S. defense agency. The customer needed to process hundreds of weekly metrics from data dispersed in disparate sources. With an automation solution from UiPath, the agency built highly scalable bots to fully automate the process, reducing the workload from many hours to 15 minutes. In addition, automation can be deployed to support federal and civilian agencies to manage future global events such as pandemics by processing and understanding data in real time.
UiPath is on a mission to uplevel knowledge work so more people can work more creatively, collaboratively, and strategically. The AI-powered UiPath Business Automation Platform combines the leading robotic process automation (RPA) solution with a full suite of capabilities to understand, automate, and operate end-to-end processes, offering unprecedented time-to-value.

WalkMe Inc., 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).
WalkMe's cloud-based digital adoption platform enables organizations to measure, drive and act to ultimately accelerate their digital transformations and better realize the value of their software investments.
