Actua Corp (NASDAQ:ACTA) GovDelivery declared that the GovDelivery Communications Cloud platform has attained mid-level Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) clearance, the first for any digital communication solutions provider.
This adherence is after an exhaustive FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board (JAB) review as well as approval procedure and gives wider coverage for simple utilization by all agencies. JAB authorization is well known as the most rigorous path to FedRAMP adherence.
GovDelivery’s cloud digital communication platform is already being utilized by a number of federal divisions. With this fresh certification the former can be utilized across all agencies. All entities utilizing GovDelivery gain from this improved level of verified security. Also GovDelivery currently provides extra support packages for those entities where compliance and security is paramount.
FedRAMP is a government initiative that gives a standardized process to security evaluation, authorization and constant tracking for cloud services as well as products. This framework minimizes time and personnel required to carry out redundant entity security assessments. Achieving FedRAMP compliance signifies that a cloud system has built and documented a very secure environment that has passed exhaustive, intensive review before federal entities are permitted to use the system. As per sources, the program has helped the government save $70 million and boosted cloud usage by 41%.
GovDelivery is aware of the significance of its solutions and has designed its systems to have high security and accessibility. The organization uses several data centers and cutting edge technology from globally recognized vendors.
In March this year GovDelivery launched GovDelivery Connect. This product syncs contact data in GoDelivery Communication Cloud with Customer Relationship Management systems at government entities. The integration of this critical customer information gives public sector entities a complete view of their relationship with the client.
GovDelivery Connect arranges and shows all interactions between public sector entities and their main audiences to assist public sector entities to link even more people with the data and resources they require.
