Snyk Achieves FedRAMP’s “In Process” Authorization

On February 07, 2023, Snyk, a computer and network security company, announced "In Process" authorization from FedRAMP, i.e., the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program marketplace, which will work towards developer security needs.

Currently working under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) sponsorship, it will get the support of federal, local, and state governments, as well as educational institutes with whom it has previously worked because of government compliance requirements. The authorization represents its support to organizations in the public sector for secured digital transformation.

Even government leaders ensure the best technological innovation, cybersecurity remedies, and software developer productivity across their agencies, just as organizations do in the private sector. The departments of U.S. federal governments and agencies with FedRAMP Moderate Impact authorization will have direct access to Snyk's security solutions for strengthening proprietary code protection, detecting security issues, open-source dependencies, cloud infrastructure, and container images. It offers security for JavaScript, containers, Kubernetes, applications, open source, cloud, SDLC, coding, and Python with security checkers. Many industry-leading applications and security intelligence support it to add security expertise to almost every developer's toolkit.

CEO of Snyk, Peter McKay, said, "Our progress towards FedRAMP authorization enables Snyk to help enhance our nation's overall software supply chain security, a vital need outlined in President Biden's recent Executive Order 14028." He added, "We are committed to helping government agencies evolve away from ineffective legacy cybersecurity approaches, allowing them to embrace a modern, developer-centric security mindset and experience the benefits of DevSecOps."
