Haivision Systems Inc., a leading global provider of video networking and visual collaboration solutions, announced today that Haivision Hub for Government has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) "In Process" designation and is currently available on FedRAMP Marketplace as the only video network service. Government agencies can securely stream live video via CDNs, OVPs, EVPs, and social media using the fully managed cloud solution. US Department of Veterans Affairs’ VA approved Haivision's FedRAMP (VA).
