Tenable announced on Friday that the company has achieved the “In Process” designation from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) for Tenable.io, the company’s cloud-based vulnerability management platform.
“As a cloud-first company, we understand the importance of and reliance on secure cloud computing, especially in environments as sensitive and critical as the federal government,” said Bill Kurtz, vice president of public sector sales at Tenable.
The FedRAMP “In Process” designation indicates that the company is actively working towards a complete FedRAMP authorization. With an official FedRAMP authorization, the federal government will deploy Tenable.io and Tenable.io Web Application Scanning across various departments and agencies.
