Department of Transportation Secures Digital Transformation with Bitglass
Bitglass, the Total Cloud Security Company, has achieved FedRAMP Authorisation by the Federal Risk and Authorisation Management Program (FedRAMP).
FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardised approach to security assessment, authorisation, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. It was established by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to provide a cost-effective, risk-based approach for the adoption and use of cloud services by federal departments and agencies. Bitglass’ initial authorising agency is the Department of Transportation, which is using Bitglass to secure its department-wide initiative to move the agency to the cloud and support remote work.
Bitglass’ Total Cloud Security Platform is designed to secure any interaction between any app, device, web destination, on-premises resource, or infrastructure. As organisations migrate to the cloud, enable BYOD policies, and shift to remote work, Bitglass delivers the granular data and threat protection policies that they need. Bitglass’ secure access service edge (SASE) offering integrates its multi-mode cloud access security broker (CASB), its SmartEdge Secure Web Gateway (SWG), and its zero trust network access (ZTNA).
“We are excited to work with the Department of Transportation and its CIO, Ryan Cote, on its forward-looking vision to modernise government IT operations,” said Nat Kausik, CEO, Bitglass. “The Department’s commitment to digital transformation across the government will deliver secure access to the cloud from any device, to any application from anywhere, improving productivity and reducing costs to better serve our citizens.”
