Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, announced its Aruba Central cloud-native network operations and analytics platform has achieved a formal “Authorized” designation with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).
The designation means Aruba Central becomes a cloud-based networking solution for unified WLAN, switching and VPN edge-to-cloud infrastructure that is compliant with the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) FedRAMP Policy and can be leveraged for use across the federal government.
FedRAMP is a U.S. government program whose mission is to promote the adoption of secure cloud services across the federal government by providing a standardized approach to security and risk assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
Designed to simplify security for the digital age, FedRAMP enables federal, state and local government agencies to transition to mission-enabling, secure, and cost-effective cloud-based IT. Based on the NIST SP 800-53 set of security controls, FedRAMP has achieved recognition among non-government consumers of IT services. Mappings are available between NIST and other popular security frameworks, allowing organizations to accept FedRAMP accreditations within their risk management programs.
Aruba Central is a powerful cloud-based solution designed to simplify and secure campus, branch, remote, and data center networks. As the single point of control for Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform), Aruba Central delivers enhancements such as AI-powered analytics, IoT device profiling for security and metadata to enable business intelligence and to help accelerate an organization’s edge-to-cloud digital transformation.
With cloud-based deployment, centralized management and control, and flexible support service options, government IT departments can experience Aruba’s technology in a SaaS-based model – and, in turn, enhance IT operations and create greater value for their organization.
