Iboss Zero Trust Cloud Solution Achieves Full FedRAMP Authorization
Iboss, a cybersecurity company based in Boston, Massachusetts, announced that its zero trust edge cloud security offering has received full authorization under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides cybersecurity ratings to cloud-based products and services offered to government agencies.
An Authorized designation signifies that an offering has met all FedRAMP requirements and is now available for agency reuse.
The offering, named iboss Government Cloud Platform, serves as a unified cloud tool that can secure any device without the need for a virtual private network, iboss said Thursday.
The product’s listing on the FedRAMP Marketplace states that it uses a software-as-a-service model and is designed to reduce agency reliance on traditional network security appliances, which the company said are no longer effective for hybrid work environments.
Iboss said that IGCP satisfies the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s specifications for zero trust, a modern cybersecurity architecture.
Zero trust is a key element of President Joe Biden’s May 2021 executive order on modernizing federal cybersecurity. The company added that its platform ensures data and resource privacy by controlling what NIST calls the “implicit trust zone.”
Paul Martini, CEO of iboss, said that IGCP is ideal for work-from-anywhere arrangements and shields sensitive information regardless of who is accessing it. “We look forward to continuing to extend our platform and expertise to U.S. government agencies,” Martini added.
