Keeper Security announces FedRAMP Authorisation

CybersecurityGovernmentTop Stories

Keeper Security, a leading provider of Zero-Trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software protecting passwords, secrets and connections, has announced that the company has obtained FedRAMP Authorisation at the Moderate Impact Level for its Keeper Security Government Cloud (KSGC).

The KSGC password management and security solution has successfully completed the rigorous FedRAMP accreditation process. This highly sought-after and difficult-to-attain designation sets KSGC apart from its competitors as the best-in-class Zero-Trust and zero-knowledge security solution for government agencies to protect their passwords, data and secrets. KSGC is hosted in AWS GovCloud (US), designed to host sensitive data, regulated workloads and address the most stringent US. government security and compliance requirements.

To receive FedRAMP Authorisation, organisations must implement controls from 17 different control families that originate from National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-53. This alone can take organisations months or years, depending on the complexity of the system.

Authorisation can only be pursued by an organisation through partnering with a federal agency or the Joint Authorisation Board (JAB). Additionally, the system must be evaluated and assessed by an authorised independent third-party auditor prior to submitting for final review and authorisation by the FedRAMP Program Management Office.

“Keeper is proud to bring its password management and cybersecurity platform to FedRAMP Authorised status,” said Darren Guccione, CEO and Co-Founder of Keeper Security. “This authorisation demonstrates Keeper’s longstanding – and, some would say, fanatical – commitment to the highest standards of internal security controls and encryption.”
