Acalvio Technologies | October 27, 2021
Acalvio Technologies, the leader in Autonomous Deception, today announced that it has been approved as “FedRAMP Ready” for Agency Authorization. Acalvio achieved FedRAMP Ready status at the Moderate Impact Level for its ShadowPlex platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS). ShadowPlex is now listed in the FedRAMP Marketplace.
Acalvio’s award-winning Autonomous Deception™ platform, ShadowPlex, enables organizations to detect, investigate and respond to malicious activity inside the perimeter. Acalvio’s solutions are anchored on innovations in Distributed Deception, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), enabling security teams to cut through the cycle of endless alerts and accelerate threat detection by focusing on high fidelity detections, all while minimizing the incidence of potential false positives.
ShadowPlex patented architecture allows distributed and autonomous deployment of effective deception, with minimal IT overhead across On-premises and Cloud workloads and remote user machines. A comprehensive and extensible deception palette covers both IT and OT environments and reduces attacker dwell time by detecting malicious activity with precision and speed.
Solutions authorized at the FedRAMP Moderate Impact Level protect the government’s sensitive unclassified data in cloud environments, including data where the loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability would result in serious adverse effects on a Federal agency’s operations, assets, or individuals.
“Acalvio ShadowPlex provides an effective and differentiated solution to detect and respond to advanced threats, even zero-day attacks. U.S. government departments and agencies need active defense solutions in place today to be ready for the increasing sophistication of cyberattacks facing our Nation. By achieving the FedRAMP Ready designation, Acalvio has demonstrated they are a valued partner for entities who wish to defend against cyber threats today.”
Ram Varadarajan, co-Founder & CEO at Acalvio Technologies
The FedRAMP Ready status adds to the SOC 2 and NIST 800-171 certifications previously achieved by Acalvio Technologies.
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. Using a “do once, use many times” framework, the program ensures information systems/services used government-wide have adequate information security; eliminates duplication of effort and reduces risk management costs; and enables rapid and cost-effective procurement of information systems/services for federal agencies.
