FedRAMP Project Management Office Prioritizes Zscaler to Pursue Joint Authorization Board Certification at the High Impact Level
Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ:ZS), the leader in cloud security, announced it is one of four cloud service providers selected to pursue Joint Authorization Board (JAB) FedRAMP certification, at the High Impact level, through the FedRAMP Connect program. This step sets the stage to further expand Zscaler's growth within the Federal market.
Under FedRAMP Connect, the FedRAMP Project Management Office (PMO), Federal CIOs, and the Office of Management & Budget (OMB) review business cases and select cloud service providers to pursue JAB certification based on government-wide demand, applicability for cross-agency use, and the security of the solution.
Earlier this year, Zscaler™ Private Access (ZPA™)-Government, a zero trust, purpose-built cloud security solution, achieved a FedRAMP Agency Authorization sponsored by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). ZPA-Government delivers certified, secure access to agency applications from anywhere, on any device.
"We are committed to meeting the most stringent Department of Defense (DOD) and intelligence community security requirements and certified to deliver services through DOD cloud programs such as JEDI," said Manoj Apte, Chief Strategy Officer, Zscaler. "We are paving the way for agencies to be able to use Zscaler's cloud-based security solutions for Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Impact levels IL4, IL5 and IL6."

FedRAMP is a government-wide program with input from numerous departments, agencies, and government groups. The program's primary decision-making body is the Joint Authorization Board (JAB), comprised of the CIOs from Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and General Services Administration (GSA). In addition to the JAB, other organizations such as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Federal CIO Council, National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), and the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) also play key roles in effectively running FedRAMP.
Using a "do once, use many times" framework, the program ensures information systems/services used government-wide have adequate information security; eliminates duplication of effort and reduces risk management costs; and enables rapid and cost-effective procurement of information systems/services for federal agencies.
