Designation Brings the Opportunity for the US Federal Government to Deploy Today’s Most Innovative Cybersecurity Platform
SentinelOne, the autonomous endpoint protection company, announced its SentinelOne Platform, which combines best-in-class EPP and EDR capabilities in addition to IoT, has achieved the designation of “In Process” for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP. This designation empowers US federal government agencies and vendors to leverage the most innovative security solution, from the fastest growing cybersecurity company in the market.
SentinelOne Receives Coveted “In Process” FedRAMP Designation
SentinelOne was sponsored for FedRAMP by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which currently deploys the platform. After seeing the benefits of SentinelOne first-hand, and subsequently replacing another next-generation product, the agency sponsored SentinelOne in order to make the solution readily available to all federal agencies.
FedRAMP provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services used by the US government. With its goal to protect US citizens data and government sensitive information in the cloud, FedRAMP is the government’s most rigorous security compliance framework and has implemented standard security baselines and processes to provide both an initial authorization of a cloud service and a mechanism for that security package to be reused across the federal government. This saves time, money, and effort for both Agencies and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs).
“FedRAMP was designed to protect both US citizens personal information and sensitive data of national interest, providing an information security standard and rigorous, comprehensive information security controls long recognized as the industry’s gold standard,” said Efi Harari, Chief Legal and Trust Officer, SentinelOne. “Being sponsored by the Office of Personnel Management and honored with this designation underscores SentinelOne’s commitment to this rigorous program, commitment to serving the public sector, and the solution’s best-in-class capabilities as well as extreme ease of use.”
A cloud service that receives a FedRAMP Authority to Operate (ATO) has met rigorous criteria for security standards. SentinelOne’s ability to receive the generous sponsorship of OPM also underscore its achievement of key federal objectives, such as: simplifying operations, reducing operational overhead and improving agility by moving services to the cloud. SentinelOne already brings this confidence to a broad array of companies ranging from the public-sector to Fortune 10 and G2000 enterprises.
“Reaching this critical FedRAMP designation is a milestone for SentinelOne and highlights the fact that the federal government’s addressable cybersecurity market of more than $64bn is ready for truly active cyber defense,” said Nicholas Warner, Chief Operating Officer, SentinelOne. “Cyber-attacks are today’s battlegrounds and to keep up with the constantly innovating and evolving threat landscape, our federal government needs the best tools for the job. We are honored to achieve this designation and look forward to working more closely with the US federal government to protect our critical data.”
Achieving the “In Process” designation indicates that SentinelOne is well on its way to becoming fully FedRAMP compliant in late 2019 or early 2020, a process that is fast-tracked due to OPM’s sponsorship of SentinelOne. This designation provides significant assurance to federal agencies and vendors as they consider purchasing SentinelOne, knowing that all their data would be stored in AWS GovCloud and fully supported by SentinelOne’s quickly maturing FedRAMP program.
