FedRAMP Authorization for Accellion’s Secure File Sharing Platform
We are delighted to announce the Accellion secure file sharing and governance platform has received FedRAMP authorization.
What is FedRAMP authorization and why does it matter?
For the uninitiated, 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 purpose of FedRAMP authorization is to provide a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The goal with FedRAMP is to help the Federal Government quickly, rigorously, and consistently assess the security capabilities of cloud solutions that are used or are being considered for use by federal agencies and ultimately increase cloud adoption across the Federal Government.
Because it has received FedRAMP authorization, government agencies have official validation that the Accellion platform is a superior hybrid cloud solution that enables Government employees to securely access, transfer and collaborate on sensitive government documents. Accellion is available to Federal and Central government agencies, State, Local and Provincial government departments, government contractors, and “security-first” private sector businesses in isolated environments on Amazon Cloud.
