iboss Achieves FedRAMP Authorization for its Zero Trust Edge Cloud Security Solution

iboss, Inc. | July 29, 2022

iboss, the leading Zero Trust Edge cloud security provider, announces that it has obtained Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Authorization. The achievement is reflective of the company’s commitment to work alongside federal agencies to protect government entities and civilians from growing and increasingly sophisticated cyberthreats. Earlier this year, the United States Office of Management and Budget unveiled a strategy designed to prevent damaging hacks and breaches by moving federal agencies toward a zero trust cybersecurity approach. The announcement followed a 2021 Biden Administration executive order aimed at protecting federal networks by modernizing government cybersecurity, including through the implementation of zero trust security architecture as defined in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The iboss platform is a purpose-built, patented, cloud delivered security solution that has been trusted by organizations worldwide to implement Zero Trust architecture as laid out specifically in the NIST 800-207 Special Publication. The company’s containerized cloud architecture makes it the only platform that can control what NIST refers to as the “Implicit Trust Zone” to ensure that all data and resources are completely private. The FedRAMP authorization now extends iboss’s leading platform to all U.S. government customers. “Our Zero Trust Edge platform prevents breaches by making applications and data inaccessible to attackers while allowing trusted users to securely and directly connect to resources from anywhere. “In today’s work-from-anywhere world, protecting sensitive information, regardless of who is accessing it or where, is critical. We look forward to continuing to extend our platform and expertise to U.S. government agencies.” iboss CEO Paul Martini A Zero Trust Architecture built on iboss consolidates network security technologies (SWG, CASB, DLP, IPS, malware defense, browser isolation, firewall) into a single unified cloud platform and eliminates the need for a VPN while securing any device, regardless of location. By making all applications private, iboss eliminates the top three initial ransomware infection vectors as identified by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). With applications, data and services made accessible only through the iboss Zero Trust Edge, cyber risk is greatly reduced, breaches and data loss are prevented, and visibility and security are delivered consistently throughout an organization. FedRAMP is a US government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. About iboss, Inc. iboss is a cloud security company that enables organizations to reduce cyber risk by delivering a Zero Trust service designed to protect resources and users in the modern distributed world. Applications, data and services have moved to the cloud and are located everywhere while users needing access to those resources are working from anywhere. Built on a containerized cloud architecture, iboss delivers security capabilities such as SWG, malware defense, browser isolation, CASB and data loss prevention to protect all resources, via the cloud, instantaneously and at scale. This shifts the focus from protecting buildings to protecting people and resources wherever they are located.
