Zscaler expands TAM with FedRAMP Authorization

Zscaler Becomes the First Cloud Services Provider to Receive FedRAMP Authorization for a Dedicated Zero Trust Remote Access Platform

“With this milestone, Zscaler can market and sell the company’s ZPA-Government cloud service to government agencies wanting to access sensitive applications and data from anywhere on any device, while maintaining the highest levels of security and performance set by FedRAMP’s stringent security compliance standards.”



Yes, this is a market Zscaler can attack. May have prevented a lot of controversy in the 2016 election and still on-going now regarding certain trafficking in government information by unusually placed private server.

Zscaler is made to defend on the edge with minimal inconvenience factor. That is if the organization that employs Zscaler makes it mandatory for each employee to only use Zscaler protected devices.

The State Department can certainly mandate this, and it would be a huge improvement over current practices. It is still up to the employee to not use a non-protected device by bringing their own private devices and instead using them. But for those following their employers mandates, Zscaler would be a great asset to the State Department.

I would wager it would replace an antiquated and extremely expensive spoke and hub system that I am sure is in place for the State Department now.
