Cloud security provider Zscaler said this week that its Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) service has been selected to be “prioritized” for Joint Authorization Board (JAB) FedRAMP certification at the High Impact Level through the General Services Administration’s FedRAMP Connect program.

The ZIA service is a secure internet and web gateway solution that was the first product of its kind to earn FedRAMP certification last year.

The ZIA service, combined with Zscaler Private Access – which already has FedRAMP High Impact Level authorization – form the core of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, the company said, and meet CISA’s TIC 3.0 guidelines.

“The events from this past year have forced the world to think differently about security in order to rapidly deploy digital services at a massive scale,” said Stephen Kovac, Zscaler’s Vice President of Global Government and Head of Corporate Compliance.

“This milestone further supports Zscaler’s commitment to help Federal agencies at the Moderate and High baseline levels adopt modern cloud-based security to protect from catastrophic breaches,” the company said.

Solutions authorized at the High Impact Level can be used to “protect the government’s most sensitive unclassified data in cloud environments, including data where the loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability may have a severe adverse effect on operations, organizational assets, or individuals,” according to GSA’s FedRAMP team.
