Acellion kiteworks receives FedRAMP authorization

We are delighted to announce our secure content collaboration platform, Accellion kiteworks, is now authorized with FedRAMP.

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 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. 

Now authorized, U.S. Federal agencies have official validation that Accellion kiteworks is a superior hybrid cloud solution that enables Government employees to securely access, transfer and collaborate on sensitive government documents. Accellion kiteworks is available to Federal Government customers in isolated environments on Amazon Cloud.

The kiteworks FedRAMP package features:

  • Data isolated from all other customers
  • Encrypted file storage and transfer
  • Remote wipe for all mobile clients

Our Chairman and CEO, Jonathan Yaron, had the following to say about this major milestone for Accellion: “earning full FedRAMP authorization reinforces our commitment to agencies at all levels that we take the security of their content extremely seriously. Government agencies can move forward with confidence, knowing that kiteworks has the proven capabilities needed to protect the sensitive data they share with colleagues, partners and constituents.”
