VMWare Receives FedRAMP Authorization for Workspace One

VMWare has secured the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program moderate authorization for its Workspace One Access

The platform, together with the company’s other product called the Workspace One Unified Endpoint Management, allows the public sector customers to accelerate their adoption of software-as-a-service solutions for secured and affordable cloud-based IT.

Along with its baseline of 325 controls, the FedRAMP authorization allows users from the government and other regulated industries to oversee controlled unclassified information such as personally identifiable information and covered defense information.

In addition, the program offers standardized security requirements for cloud products, services assessment and monitoring used in federal agencies. 

The initiative also allows a more streamlined procurement process for public sector clients by standardizing security requirements throughout federal agencies and lets them choose authorized cloud solutions that meet various levels of security requirements and certification. 

William J. Rowan, vice president for federal sales, government, education and healthcare, a Potomac Officers Club member and a three-time Wash100 winner, said the U.S. government is keen to modernize its IT infrastructure to support complex missions, growing workloads and increasing workforce in the face of an evolving threat landscape. 

“By earning the FedRAMP Authorization for Workspace ONE Access, VMware equips our federal customers with device management, access management and an end-to-end Zero Trust approach, allowing them to maximize time and resources, enhance security efficiency and boost resiliency,” he said. 

In a statement, the company said the software provides multifactor authentication conditional access and single sign-on for applications delivered by combining the user’s identity with factors such as device and network information to make conditional access decisions.

A subsidiary of Dell Technologies, VMWare is a public company established in 1998, specializing in cloud infrastructure and management, network virtualization, data center security, digital workspace and transformation, big data, IT operations and hyper-converged infrastructure.
