IT security provider Zscaler said this week 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.

The selection, the company said, “sets the stage to further expand Zscaler’s growth within the Federal market.”

The company’s Private Access-Government cloud security solution earlier this year achieved a FedRAMP Agency Authorization sponsored by the Federal Communications Commission.

“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,” Zscaler explained.

“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, Zscaler’s chief strategy officer, in a statement. “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,” he said.
