Juvare®, the leader in situational awareness and critical incident preparedness and response technology, has been granted a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) authorization by the United States Government to operate at the High impact level for the Juvare Federal Cloud (JFC).
Achieving FedRAMP High authorization is a recognition of the trusted and timely solutions Juvare provides for government, including JFC, which enables a compliant and secure environment for public sector organizations to deploy Juvare solutions, including WebEOC® and Juvare Exchange®. The FedRAMP High authorization builds upon Juvare’s aggressive security posture and follows Juvare’s ISO accreditations under the ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, and ISO 27701 programs, and its SSAE 18 SOC 2 Type 2 certification.
“This is an enormous achievement that recognizes Juvare’s ability to provide modern and highly secure solutions the federal government is looking for,” said Robert Watson, Chief Executive Officer at Juvare. “With cyber security, emergency preparedness, health crises, and more dominating the federal priority list, this authorization gives government better access to the tools we provide to protect the communities they serve. It’s a recognition that’s been earned through our relentless commitment to data security and innovations that respond to real-world threats and risks.”
FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. Established by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the program provides a cost-effective, risk-based approach for adopting and using cloud services by federal departments and agencies.
“Technology is a force multiplier for delivery of services to communities across the nation that our clients serve and protect,” says Bryan Kaplan, Chief Information and Technology Officer at Juvare. “This authorization demonstrates our commitment to the federal-civilian and military ecosystem and will enable faster processing of Authority to Operate (ATO) packages through reciprocity. It enables agencies to focus on protecting their communities and our nation, knowing that Juvare is managing security and availability.”
Juvare partnered with A-LIGN and SMX to achieve FedRAMP accreditation. The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) served as Juvare’s sponsor through the authorization process.
“FedRAMP authorization is a statement about an organization’s commitment to protecting federal data and metadata against one of the most rigorous standards for data security,” said Tony Bai, Government Practice Lead at A-LIGN. “As a trusted 3PAO firm, A-LIGN independently evaluates client data processes and procedures, governance on internal controls, and security posture. Juvare’s FedRAMP Authorization validates its commitment to data security and protection, as well as compliance with critical standards to mitigate cybersecurity threats.”
Juvare’s solutions including WebEOC, Crisis Track®, and EMResource® have been used to prepare for, respond to, and recover from major emergencies and adverse incidents since their inception. As public sector organizations modernize and demand persistent situational awareness, Juvare solutions have become embedded in daily workstreams by digitizing workflows, providing situational awareness, enabling multi-channel notifications, and connecting disparate data sources into a single pane of glass.
Juvare is a worldwide leader in emergency preparedness and critical incident management and response technology connecting over 80% of state public health agencies, 3,500+ hospitals, 50+ federal agencies, and 500+ emergency management operations across the U.S., as well as a rapidly expanding international presence.
