Zscaler, a leader in cloud security, has announced that it is the first cloud security and zero trust vendor to successfully complete an Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) Assessment.
Zscaler’s IRAP Assessment signifies that the cloud platform, Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange, and Zscaler solutions have been independently validated as being significantly compliant in support of Australian Government security policy.
The IRAP assessment validates the organization to best support the Australian government as it strengthens public sector cloud security posture to protect employees and citizens.
Zscaler completed IRAP’s two security assessment stages, as dictated in the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM). The first stage included a security assessment which identified potential requirements for product security mitigation. A second stage assessed residual compliance focused on seeking evidence of compliance with and the effectiveness of security controls.
The Australian Government has been transitioning to cloud-first as a departmental strategy for several years seeking to reap the performance and cost benefits of using cloud resources. During 2020, COVID-related pressures accelerated the number of agencies that are shifting from legacy, on-premise systems to cloud-based alternatives in order to help citizens and employees access governmental resources.
“We are delighted that the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange and our suite of security solutions can now complete the missing piece in the government’s cloud security strategy,” said Budd Ilic, ANZ Country Manager, Zscaler.Click below to share this article
