Cylance Announces FedRAMP Accreditation

Latest Certification Makes Cylance a Partner-of-Choice to Help Organizations Comply With Federal Third Party Guidelines and Assess Security Risks Associated With Cloud Computing

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 20, 2015) - Cylance, the first predictive cyber security company that applies artificial intelligence to stop malware, today announced that it has achieved accreditation from the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA). Cylance is designated as an approved Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). Cylance is one of only 33 organizations worldwide to obtain this classification as an inspection body to assess cloud systems for the federal government.

FedRAMP is the first government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud-based services. In order to receive accreditation, Cylance demonstrated an advanced level of technical proficiency and compliance experience. According to the A2LA, the "assessment process involves a rigorous evaluation of technical competence of the 3PAOs as well as an assessment of their compliance with international standards."

"As we have seen time and time again, third party risk can fail even the strongest of security defenses," said Corey White, Vice President of Professional Services at Cylance.

"As our enemies become increasingly more aggressive and sophisticated, the ability to understand and address risk with a common language and unified approach is critical. Cylance's unparalleled combination of deep technical expertise and innovation was born into and tuned for this new reality," White said. "We are proud to have achieved this level of certification and to be a part of the FedRAMP program."

Cylance Professional Services comprises experts and comprehensive offerings supported by advanced technology. Cylance offers penetration testing, incident response, compromise assessments and custom services for organizations of all sizes and sectors, including industrial control systems (ICS) as well as critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR).
