Zscaler Private Access Achieves FedRAMP “Ready” Status at High Impact Level

Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) Service Facilitates TIC Modernization and Federal Cloud Adoption

Zscaler, Inc. (ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced Zscaler Private Access (ZPA), a zero trust network access service, achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Ready status at the High Impact level; enabling Federal agencies to use modern and emerging technologies, like Zscaler to meet their Trusted Internet Connection (TIC) initiative requirements.

The achievement of FedRAMP Ready at the High Impact level indicates to the Federal Government that Zscaler Private Access has undergone a rigorous in-depth audit of critical security controls to protect the government’s most sensitive unclassified data in cloud computing environments. The milestone is an important step on Zscaler’s path to securing high baseline systems and achieving Department of Defense (DOD) Impact Levels 4, 5, and 6.

The FedRAMP Ready designation expands the Federal market for Zscaler, enabling ZPA to meet the requirements of civilian agencies that need high baseline platforms as well as DOD and Intel customers

Definitely a positive for ZS.



“In addition, Zscaler’s cloud security platform meets the newly released Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) 3.0 policy guidelines. Traditional TIC architecture previously required agencies to backhaul traffic, negatively impacting service performance and availability, hampering mobile access, and creating a roadblock to cloud deployment. TIC 3.0 gives agencies new flexibility and the opportunity to take advantage of cloud and modern technology, securely.”

It would seem this TIC 3.0 has just been released. Federal CIO Kent announces TIC 3.0 September 12 2019.

Nice indication of enhanced Zscaler marketing efforts.

Question for the board.
What is your experience of how long it takes to move from announcement to implementation?

This cloud approval is not for classified documents, how long is the process to secure high baseline systems and achieving Department of Defense (DOD) Impact Levels 4, 5, and 6?
