In a recent press release, Accellion, Inc., a leading provider in hybrid and private cloud secure content collaboration, announced it has received FedRAMP authorization from the U.S. Federal Government, determining its kiteworks secure content collaboration platform is compliant with Federal security requirements.

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. Initiated to increase cloud adoption across the Federal Government, FedRAMP is a rigorous security assessment and authorization framework developed by cybersecurity and cloud experts from a number of government agencies and private industry. The goal of FedRAMP is to help the Federal Government quickly, rigorously, and consistently assess the security of cloud solutions that are used or are being considered for use by federal agencies.

The FedRAMP authorization assessment process includes an in-depth examination of a solution’s data security and data governance capabilities, as well as the security practices of the technology companies providing the cloud services. Now authorized, Accellion kiteworks can be deployed in isolated environments on Amazon Cloud to enable government employees to securely access and transfer sensitive documents.

Accellion has a number of Federal Government customers already leveraging its products to collaborate securely with external partners, including: National Park Service, Securities and Exchange Commission, National Institute for Standards and Technology, United States Senate, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services, NASA, National Transportation Safety Board, USDA, National Science Foundation, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and National Gallery of Art, among many more.
