Netskope protects government agencies as they move to the cloud

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – September 25, 2019 – Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced that its Security Cloud Platform meets the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) requirements and has achieved FedRAMP Authorization. The initial authorizing agency is the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HSS).

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The program enables government agencies to adapt from old, insecure legacy IT to mission-enabling, secure, and cost-effective cloud-based IT.

“Completing our FedRAMP Authorization illustrates our commitment to providing the cloud security platform to government agencies,” said Beau Hutto, VP of Public Sector at Netskope. “We have been and always will be committed to security at Netskope – it’s part of our DNA. This achievement speaks to our commitment to reaching government agencies who are increasingly moving to the cloud. The nature of business is changing and we’re pleased to see government agencies recognizing this shift and taking the appropriate precautions to be ahead of the curve.”
