Menlo Security | February 06, 2023
Menlo Security, a well-known cloud security provider, has recently announced that its cloud-native Menlo Security platform has acquired an Authorization to operate (ATO) under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) at the moderate level.
This Authorization is for the usage of cloud-based internet isolation (CBII) and remote browser isolation (RBI) technologies, protecting data and humans from zero-day attacks, spyware, malware, and ransomware. With the support of the Isolation CoreTM, it will stop threats before they happen. In addition, it centralizes interfaces, removing the need for other technologies, extends integration with different interfaces, and prevents HEAT attacks.
Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer of Menlo Security, Poornima DeBolle, said, "Achieving FedRAMP Authorization for the Menlo Cloud Security Platform is a true testament to the value of our Isolation Core architecture. Our ability to protect the users from sophisticated attacks while maintaining a consistent user experience will enable the government agencies to focus on their mission." She added, "Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT) are challenging legacy security stacks with new techniques to deliver malware to the user. Our Zero Trust approach, powered by our innovative Isolation Core, has been proven by CBII in the DoD with millions of users for more than two years. We look forward to bringing the same protection to all government agencies with our FedRAMP Authorization."
