Secure access company Appgate plans to deliver its Zero Trust Network Access solution, Appgate SDP, as a service to U.S. government entities.
The solution will be available via a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program Joint Authorization Board-approved environment.
Through a partnership with Rackspace Government Solutions, Appgate SDP will be made available as an additional service offering within Rackspace Government Cloud, a managed security and compliance platform.
“Zero Trust is becoming increasingly essential in the public sector, as highlighted in the recent Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity,” said Appgate CEO Barry Field. “Appgate SDP can help government entities meet requirements to achieve a Zero Trust security posture by ensuring secure access to the cloud in a FedRAMP-approved environment.”
Under the new partnership with Rackspace Government Solutions, government agencies will soon be able to secure their distributed hybrid IT ecosystems with Appgate SDP. The solution creates one-to-one network connections between users and the resources they are authorized to access.
“The ability to offer Appgate SDP as a service meets the demand of our federal government customers and our partner ecosystem,” said Ned Miller, senior vice president and general manager of Appgate’s federal division.
“Appgate offers the most flexible deployment models for any ZTNA technology in its class,” he added. “Our prospects, customers and partners will soon be able to deploy Appgate SDP on premises, in a private cloud, in a government-approved cloud, as a managed service in a government-owned location or remotely from a FedRAMP-approved environment.”
