As government agencies undergo digital transformation into cloud computing, they are running into new complexities around security, operational visibility, and production workloads. While elastic computing offers tremendous flexibility, it also brings a new scale to operations that can quickly outpace traditional methods for security and governance.
Teleport is a modern open-core, privileged access management (PAM) solution that helps organizations secure mission-critical cloud or hybrid infrastructure, get complete visibility into access and behavior, and reduce operational overhead. It is a modern security gateway for remotely accessing clusters of Linux servers via SSH or SSH-over-HTTPS or Kubernetes clusters.
Teleport includes optional FedRAMP and FIPS 140-2 controls to support agencies or SaaS companies that sell into government agencies. FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services (source). The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) publication 140-2 is a US government standard that defines approved cryptographic modules (source).
