Skyhigh Security Achieves United States Department of Defense Impact Level 5 Certification
Skyhigh Security’s advanced data-aware technology enables Department of Defense to safely navigate complex cloud environments
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Skyhigh Security today announced its Skyhigh Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) technology has achieved the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) Provisional Authorization to Operate (P-ATO) at Impact Level 5 (IL5), certifying it has met the rigorous security requirements required for inclusion in the Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide. The certification follows the DoD’s Defense Innovation Unit’s success memo for Skyhigh Security Service Edge (SSE), reinforcing the clear benefits Skyhigh Security’s data-aware technology brings to the associated Combatant Commands, services and agencies across the US DoD.
“The Skyhigh SSE portfolio provides critical building blocks needed in the DoD’s Zero Trust architecture and framework,” said Gee Rittenhouse, CEO of Skyhigh Security. “By achieving IL5 certification, government agencies and their contractors can use Skyhigh CASB for complete visibility and control over their data in the cloud, including access to sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud apps. By transforming to a cloud-delivered SSE, they can converge connectivity and security for greater threat protection across all their cloud services.”
Skyhigh CASB, part of the Skyhigh SSE Portfolio, protects data and stops threats in the cloud across all Software-as-a-Service applications, Infrastructure-as-a-Service environments, and Shadow IT, from a single, cloud-native enforcement point. As a cloud service, it gives organizations visibility and control of their data in the cloud, regardless of where it resides.
“This important milestone demonstrates Skyhigh Security’s commitment to providing the DoD with cloud-native solutions that consistently focus on critical mission outcomes, protect sensitive data and defend against threats in the cloud,” said Paul Barbosa, Chief Revenue Officer, Skyhigh Security. “Our data-first Zero Trust cloud solutions meet and exceed the public sector’s needs as well as the requirements of the administration’s executive order on Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity.”
The Skyhigh Security Portfolio also includes Skyhigh Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Skyhigh Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), and Skyhigh Private Access, and other products, integrated into the comprehensive cloud platform in the market.
