Aruba Central Gets ‘Authorized’ Seal From FedRAMP
Santa Clara-headquartered Aruba announced that its cloud-native network operations and analytics platform have achieved a formal “authorized” designation with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program. With the seal of approval, Aruba Central becomes a cloud-based networking solution for unified WLAN, switching and VPN edge-to-cloud infrastructure that is compliant with the Office of Management and Budget’s FedRAMP Policy and can be leveraged for use across the federal government, Aruba said Thursday.
Dolan Sullivan, vice president of federal for Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, said the company is seeing its government customers migrate an increasing number of workloads to public, private and hybrid cloud environments and this is placing an increased emphasis on FedRAMP compliance. She added that receiving the authorized designation underscores Aruba’s commitment to helping government customers modernize their networks and leverage innovative technologies to solve their most pressing IT challenges while mitigating risk.
For his part, Jon Green, chief security officer for Aruba, admitted that delivering services from the public cloud always results in security and risk management concerns. Accreditations like FedRAMP provide assurance to the company’s customers that an independent, federally-authorized auditing organization has inspected each security control and found them sufficient, he added.
FedRAMP is a U.S. government program whose aim is to promote the adoption of secure cloud services across the federal government by providing a standardized approach to security and risk assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, Aruba said.
