Netskope Receives FedRAMP Authorization for Security Cloud Platform

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced that its Security Cloud Platform meets the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) requirements and has achieved FedRAMP Authorization. The initial authorizing agency is the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HSS).

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program enables government agencies to adapt from old, insecure legacy IT to mission-enabling, secure, and cost-effective cloud-based IT.

"Completing our FedRAMP Authorization illustrates our commitment to providing the cloud security platform to government agencies," said Beau Hutto, VP of Public Sector at Netskope. "We have been and always will be committed to security at Netskope – it's part of our DNA. This achievement speaks to our commitment to reaching government agencies who are increasingly moving to the cloud. The nature of business is changing and we're pleased to see government agencies recognizing this shift and taking the appropriate precautions to be ahead of the curve."

Netskope provides a data-centric approach to securing government agencies, following sensitive data to where it is processed and used, from on-prem to cloud and web, or even a hybrid model. Netskope can help government agencies protect users and data from advanced threats, secure confidential files, and manage compliance mandates and requirements for cloud and web.
