FedRAMP - Protecting Sensitive Content for the Public and Private Sectors

Accellion kiteworks is a FedRAMP Moderate authorized solution that enables both private and public sector organizations to share sensitive information with full control, visibility, and confidence.

Accellion kiteworks provides organizations with the highest levels of security and control of their most sensitive information. With kiteworks for FedRAMP, government agencies and commercial organizations get an additional layer of security that complies with over 400 additional controls in personnel, IT and physical security mandated by the Federal Government.

As with the standard kiteworks solution, kiteworks for FedRAMP encrypts all data in transit and at rest and customers have sole ownership of the encryption keys. Both solutions are compliant with regulations and standards including: ITAR, GDPR, SOC-2 (SSAE-16), FISMA, FIPS 140-2, and EAR.

And because Accellion’s secure file sharing platform is a FedRAMP-authorized cloud solution, Accellion meets all the security requirements listed in NIST 800-171.

Accellion’s FedRAMP Moderate authorized solution is available to Government agencies and commercial businesses in isolated environments on Amazon Cloud. Per FedRAMP requirements, it is supported within the United States, by US citizens.

The kiteworks FedRAMP package features:

  • Separate customer virtual private cloud (VPC) for all processing
  • Dedicated servers
  • Data isolated from all other customers
  • Encrypted file storage and transfer with sole encryption key ownership
  • Remote wipe for all mobile clients
  • Reporting and audit trails
