Designation Demonstrates iboss’ Commitment to Serving Federal Agencies
iboss, the leading Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) cloud security provider, announced it has achieved a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) “In Process” authorization, a precursor to becoming fully FedRAMP authorized. This designation underscores iboss’ commitment to serving federal agencies and helping them ensure secure access to all applications from any device regardless of location. To lead iboss’ federal government strategy, Craig Mueller recently joined iboss as the new Vice President of Federal Sales.
FedRAMP is a US government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The FedRAMP ‘In Process’ designation, was achieved under the sponsorship of International Trade Association. iboss is now listed on the FedRAMP marketplace and is actively working with a 3PAO to achieve and complete its FedRAMP authorization.
“Until recently, there was a huge focus on securing an agency’s perimeter by routing all incoming and outgoing internet traffic through a multiple security technology stack of appliances located at an agency data center or branch office location. However, this legacy approach does not effectively support the continued adoption of cloud applications, as well as the abundance of government personnel that will continue working remotely post-pandemic,” said Paul Martini, CEO of iboss. “Craig has a proven track record of leading high performing Federal teams. We look forward to achieving FedRAMP authorization under his leadership, while helping Federal organizations adopt a zero trust architecture.”
“iboss’ innovative, cloud-native platform will help federal organizations solve the mission-critical need to securely connect users and devices to applications in our new hybrid work environment,” said Mueller. “We’re excited to be working with Government agencies as they begin to modernize their legacy architecture in support of the recent Executive Order, while moving toward secure cloud services and a zero trust architecture to support the needs of federal workforce.”
