Zscaler Internet Access Achieves FedRAMP “In Process” Status
Zscaler, Inc., the leader in cloud security, announced Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) “In Process” status at the High Impact level. ZIA, the first secure internet gateway solution to earn FedRAMP certification, is being sponsored for High Impact by a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Command.
ZIA enables federal agencies to move securely to the cloud while providing internet and software-as-a-service (SaaS) application security that scales to all users from any device or location. This new milestone is the latest example of Zscaler’s ongoing commitment to helping federal agencies with their mission to modernize IT and adopt cloud-based solutions to more efficiently and securely serve citizens. Zscaler’s other significant recent public sector achievements include:
- Zscaler Private Access (ZPA) became the first zero trust remote access service to be designated FedRAMP High Baseline JAB Authorized.
- Zscaler is working with the DoD’s Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to achieve DoD compliance at Impact Levels 4 and 5, which simplifies how DoD agencies can procure secure systems with confidence.
- The DoD’s Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) selected Zscaler to prototype ZPA and ZIA as secure access technologies. The project has the potential to scale to other DoD organizations through a production Other Transaction (OT) agreement.

“Our mission is to keep all DoD employees safe and productive, whether working from home or deployed in theater. Supporting remote teams and securing all data classifications is more important than ever, and Zscaler is focused on delivering to agencies secure, fast access to cloud providers, SaaS applications, and private applications,” said Drew Schnabel, Vice President of Federal at Zscaler.
“Zscaler is honored to work with our DoD sponsor to achieve the FedRAMP High ‘In Process’ designation for Zscaler Internet Access, which the government uses as a Trusted Internet and Cloud Access Point,” said Stephen Kovac, Vice President of Global Government and Compliance at Zscaler. “This designation is an excellent example of how compliance programs like FedRAMP can be incredibly efficient, speed up innovation, and build upon the partnership between private industry and the government.”
