SAN JOSE, Calif.–Feb. 4, 2020-- Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced that Stephen Kovac, Vice President of Global Government and Head of Corporate Compliance, Zscaler, has been named a FCW Fed100 recipient, and will be inducted on March 19, 2020.

The Fed100 awards recognize senior executives from government and industry who have made a positive impact on the way information technology is used to advance government missions.

Throughout his career, Kovac has worked to remove roadblocks to Federal cloud adoption, collaborating with agency leaders to strengthen cloud security since TIC and FedRAMP efforts were first launched. In 2019, he advocated for the successfully updated TIC 3.0 policy, and worked with an industry/government task force to publish a zero trust report to evaluate the technical maturity of zero trust technologies and services with the potential for agency adoption.

In 2019, under Kovac’s leadership, Zscaler launched the first cloud-based, FedRAMP TIC 3.0 solution to allow agencies to create fast, secure connections between users and applications, regardless of device, location, or network. Most recently, Zscaler has achieved FedRAMP Ready status at the High Impact level for its zero trust access solution and was the first FedRAMP Authorized Secure Internet and Web Gateway provider.Zscaler’s Stephen Kovac Honored with 2020 Federal 100 Award for Achievements in Modernizing Cloud Security
