Forcepoint’s Dynamic Cloud Solutions for CASB Receive FedRAMP In Process Designation from GSA

Share

Recently, we learned that our Forcepoint Dynamic Cloud Solutions for CASB has received an “In Process” designation from FedRAMP, under sponsorship from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.  

FedRAMP is a US Federal program​ designed to ensure that cloud-based software can be ​trusted to meet legally mandated requirements for ​security information systems of Federal agencies. FedRAMP ensures that agencies can use a 3rd party ​Cloud Service Provider while maintaining NIST 800-53 compliance​.

FedRAMP Goals:

  • Accelerate adoption of secure cloud solutions​ for government applications
  • Improve confidence in the security of cloud solutions​
  • Consistency in cloud security authorizations and security practices​
  • Increase automation and near real-time data for continuous monitoring​

Forcepoint’s “In Process” designation from FedRAMP indicates that Forcepoint is committed and actively working on the documentation required to achieve a FedRAMP Authorization, and that an agency is reviewing that documentation with the intent to provide an Agency Authority to Operate (ATO) that meets the FedRAMP requirements. Forcepoint is pursuing certification to meet FedRAMP’s moderate impact level, which requires 325 security controls.

Forcepoint’s Longstanding Commitment to Customers

As a trusted partner and advisor to the government for over 30 years, taking part in the FedRAMP program shows yet again, how seriously we take our relationship with our federal customers, and the investments we are making to enable federal agencies to increase security and compliance. The federal government has some of the highest standards for cloud solutions of any organization in the world. The FedRAMP authorization process validates our security controls meet the high standards required by US Federal agencies to protect government systems and infrastructure.

Forcepoint’s human-centric cybersecurity portfolio brings together a broad set of capabilities that protect sensitive networks and data wherever they are accessed and reside. Our Dynamic Cloud solutions unify web, network, cloud, and data security in the cloud- powering a new generation of converged security services for the cloud. Behavior-based and risk-adaptive solutions from Forcepoint stop evolving threats by uncovering risky user activity in the cloud, network, and endpoint and continuously calculated risk scores to protect data anywhere.
