New interim guidance from DHS CISA allows direct-to-cloud connections through a cloud service provider without the need to first go through TIC. Learn how Zscaler's FedRAMP High service uses an internet-based cloud architecture to connect authorized teleworkers to agency applications in a quick, seamless, and more secure manner than with a VPN.
Government agencies are in the midst of cloud transformation. Applications are moving out of the data center and into the cloud. But such services extend the security perimeter to the internet. This shift requires agencies to consider how to best access the internet and secure applications no matter the user, device, or location.
The Zscaler FedRAMP Cloud provides agencies with secure access to the internet and applications. It helps agencies improve security, while reducing cost and complexity and delivering a better user experience.
As government agencies implement IT modernization initiatives, they need to reduce appliance complexity and improve user experience. Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) enables agencies to route mission-critical traffic straight to the cloud, without the latency of hairpinning through MTIPS or the legacy TIC perimeter. Our government solution, ZIA-Government, is the first secure internet and web gateway solution to meet the guidance of the TIC 3.0 initiative.
Zscaler's FedRAMP authorized secure internet and web gateway solution, ZIA Government, securely connects users over the internet to externally managed applications regardless of device, employee location, or network. Agencies can reduce the costs associated with backhauling traffic through outdated technology and the associated complex array of security applications, while increasing performance.
Government agencies are in the midst of a transformation. Applications are moving out of the data center and into the cloud and users have moved off the internal network. Consider how to best allow users to access applications from remote locations from any device—government issued or not—without introducing risk.
Zscaler's FedRAMP High Authorized zero trust remote access service securely connects trusted users to trusted internal applications, without placing users on the network. ZPA eliminates the need for traditional, on-premises, VPN appliances that create high operational overhead and require compromising on security, cost, and user experience.
By moving federal government Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) security controls and other advanced security services to the Zscaler FedRAMP-authorized cloud platform, agency leaders can improve how they see, protect, and control user traffic to SaaS applications and the internet.
