IMHO, ;^) Todays announcement by Zscaler represents the success of their ongoing endeavors in both increasing their continuing FedRamp authorizations and Focusing on improving one of their main products, Zscaler Internet Access™ (ZIA™)and Zscaler Private Access™ (ZPA™).
The mangement team is committed and Focused on their Company Mission Statement and improving their products through a rigorous FedRamp evaluation and have been successful in delivering their comprehensive zero trust products.
This could benefit Zscaler with an increasing customer base as more Chief Information Officers (CIO) and the Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) throughout state and local governments, education, and the private sector recognize the benefits of and utilize the Zero Trust Platform.
“This FedRAMP High authorization elevates Zscaler and our support of the US government as currently the only cloud security company with two FedRAMP High JAB authorizations in the market,”
said Drew Schnabel, Vice President of Federal at Zscaler.
“Delivering zero trust and SASE through FedRAMP authorized platforms at the highest impact levels is crucial for the security of our nation’s future,”
said Stephen Kovac, Chief Compliance Officer at Zscaler.
“Zscaler committed to our customers that we would deliver a comprehensive zero trust and SASE platform at the High and Moderate baseline levels. Today, we are proud to announce we have met that commitment. The Zscaler team continues to follow the guidance of Executive Order 14028, CISA’s TIC 3.0 and zero trust use cases, DOD/DISA’s National Defense Authorization Act, and our customers and partners. We are delivering FedRAMP High authorized cloud platforms, while helping agencies modernize and transform their legacy cybersecurity environments to cloud-based SASE and zero trust solutions.”
“FedRAMP High is a must-have for many federal agency deployments,”
said Zeus Kerravala, Founder and Principal Analyst at ZK Research.
“We see more and more CISOs and CIOs across state and local government, education, and the private sector recognizing the value of a third-party validated security assessment"
Zscaler Achieves Zero Trust Security-as-a-Service FedRAMP High Authorization
Aug 01, 2022
Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA), a Key Service of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange Platform, is Currently the Only SASE TIC 3.0 Solution that has Achieved FedRAMP’s Highest Authorization
Zscaler , the leader in cloud security, today announced that Zscaler Internet Access™ (ZIA™) achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) High Authority to Operate from the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB). This federal government certification enables ZIA to meet civilian agencies’ high security requirements, as well as those of the Department of Defense (DoD) and other intelligence organizations. ZIA is currently the only Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) 3.0 solution that has achieved FedRAMP’s highest authorization.
FedRAMP High authorization indicates to federal decision-makers that ZIA and ZPA have undergone rigorous audits of critical security controls to protect the government’s most sensitive unclassified data in remote cloud computing environments.
**** Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange Platform is the worlds largest cloud security platform and is unique in that it primarily protects cloud workloads by controlling access. ( whereas some other platforms primarily protect these same workloads by detecting and then responding to threats.)
i like the management team for their clear communication and positive Focused attitudes.
41% of company shares are held by insiders.
“Zscaler’s mission is to empower organizations to realize the full potential of the cloud and mobility by securely connecting users to applications from any device, anywhere.”
‘Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA): Delivers your security stack as a service from the cloud, eliminating the cost and complexity of traditional secure web gateway approaches.’
‘Zscaler Private Access (ZPA): Ensures that only authorized users have access to specific private applications by creating secure segments of one between individual devices and apps.’
Good to see a committed team Focused on product improvement. ;^)
They do a good job partnering with other SaaS companies to deliver secure ‘FedRAMP High authorized cloud platforms, while helping agencies modernize and transform their legacy cybersecurity environments to cloud-based SASE and zero trust solutions.’
