Like many large, complex, and security-conscious organizations, U.S. federal agencies continue to modernize their IT infrastructure to support dynamic workforces. Making those changes always represents an important investment in an organization’s future, but the stakes can be even higher when it comes to protecting civilian, defense, intelligence and contractor ecosystems.
That’s why the recent announcement from the Federal Risk and Management Program’s Joint Authorization Board (FedRAMP JAB) prioritizing RSA SecurID Access for a slot to work with the JAB to achieve a Provisional Authorization to Operate (P-ATO) is such an important validation of our work.
By prioritizing RSA SecurID Access, the JAB – the primary governance and decision-making body for FedRAMP, consisting of the CIOs from the Department of Homeland Security, General Services Administration, and Department of Defense – signals that RSA is on its way to secure access for federal agencies and public sector organizations in the cloud.
This latest news follows on the November announcement that the U.S. Census Bureau is sponsoring RSA’s identity and assurance solution for FedRAMP agency authorization. Together, these two FedRAMP notifications validate RSA SecurID Access and its value for governmental agencies.
RSA SecurID Access, the world’s most widely deployed identity assurance solution, empowers organizations with a broad range of authentication methods and embedded multi-factor authenticators (including push notification, one-time password, SMS, biometrics, and more). It works secures ground-to-cloud access and supports organizations’ cloud journeys. We understand the unique challenges that public agencies face and provide a number of solutions to help them address digital risk.
We’re proud to receive this distinction and eager to continue working with JAB and the U.S. Census Bureau to ensure government officials can advance cloud-first initiatives, protect sensitive information and deliver vital services.
