As evidenced by its FedRAMP Authorization from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, Bitglass’ Total Cloud Security Platform is an ideal choice for security in the government space. It is within this vertical that organizations handle sensitive data like personally identifiable information (PII) and have perhaps the most stringent security requirements. With its comprehensive secure access service edge (SASE) offering, Bitglass can secure any interaction between any device, app, web destination, on-premises resource, or infrastructure. Read on to learn more. 

The Bitglass platform integrates cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG), and zero trust network access (ZTNA) technology. It is through this combination that Bitglass can provide the protections needed by government agencies.

Bitglass’ multi-mode cloud access security broker secures any application, from Office 365 to long-tail or niche SaaS, as well as any IaaS platform, including AWS, Azure, and GCP. As the only true multi-mode CASB, the solution can secure data at rest and data in transit; its unique reverse proxy deployment mode provides agentless protection, a perfect fit for unmanaged devices. 

The SmartEdge SWG is the world’s only on-device secure web gateway, boasting local decryption and inspection of traffic. SmartEdge ensures security on the web and shadow IT; for example, by filtering unproductive or threatening URLs and controlling access to unmanaged apps. Because of its unique architecture, the solution is able to avoid the performance, cost, scalability, and privacy challenges associated with appliances and backhaul cloud proxy SWGs. 

Bitglass offers a unique, cloud-based approach to ZTNA that forgoes the need for VPN clients, ensuring usability, scalability, and performance. With an agent-based option for thick-client apps like SSH and an agentless option for browser-based apps, Bitglass gives secure access to specific resources rather than unfettered access to everything on the network. Only Bitglass’ ZTNA includes real-time, granular capabilities like DLP and ATP.

With these three technologies integrated into a single platform, customers can prevent data leakage, stop threats, obtain comprehensive visibility, and enforce identity and access management for any interaction. With a cloud-based architecture boasting an independently verified uptime of 99.99% since 2014, Bitglass has you covered around the clock and across the globe.
