GOVERNMENT BUSINESS, CYBERSECURITY
Businesswire | April 10, 2023
The Board of Directors of Juvare, LLC today announced the establishment of the Juvare Federal and Defense (JFD) business unit to accelerate the delivery of technology solutions optimized for the U.S. Government to respond to crises and organize vital national security data. JFD’s solution suite facilitates real-time situational awareness to provide a full understanding of events as they unfold, allowing decision makers to quickly and confidently make the correct call to keep Americans safe.
The USA-headquartered business unit will be led by Patrick Macfarlane, Chief Operating Officer and Patrick J. Lane, President. JFD will leverage its independent operating model to bolster program delivery, aligning dedicated specialists and sales resources to enhance execution. It has existing contracts with many departments including FEMA, Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Defense.
“Having made material investments in our team, our solutions, and our existing government and defense clients, we felt that the next stage in our rapid growth was to formally create a dedicated business unit to this market,” said George Riedel, Chairman of the Board.
JFD will also launch a new solution this spring, enabling a real-time, global common operation picture with world-class geospatial capabilities that can connect to any government or commercial system, and is powered by our machine learning and AI for predictive analytics. The solution will integrate seamlessly with existing infrastructure, provide accurate access to resource data, and create wide-scale awareness of available resources allowing swift reaction in a time of crisis.
“JFD reflects not only our investment, but also our expansion within the federal government and the underpinning of our commitment to the security of our homeland and that of our allied partner nations,” said Robert “Bob” Watson, President and CEO of Juvare. “Gone are the days of organizing our national security and crisis response through spreadsheets. We are in a time where lives depend on decisions being made in seconds, not hours, with data that is real-time and accurate. JFD has the technology necessary to enable secure and rapid Whole-of-Government responses when they are needed most.”
General Barry McCaffrey (USA Ret), a member of the Juvare Board of Directors, added, “Our national security demands a coordinated and integrated response among the many government platforms that currently can’t communicate with each other. Juvare’s advanced technology, combined with our deep understanding of the unique needs of the U.S. Government, will enable increased readiness and provide data-driven decision support.”
Juvare’s advanced and secure technology makes JFD the commercial partner of choice when assisting federal agencies in the Whole-of-Government Unified Coordination for the National Defense Strategy (NDS), Homeland Security Strategy, and the National Emergency Response Plan (ERP).
Juvare is a worldwide leader in crisis management software. Juvare solutions empower government agencies, corporations, healthcare facilities, academic institutions, and volunteer organizations to leverage real-time data to manage incidents faster and more efficiently, protecting people, property, and brands.

Copado, the leader in low-code DevOps, today announced it has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMPⓇ) authorization to operate (ATO) at the moderate impact level. Copado has a proven track record of working with customers in the public sector, such as the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), to improve the quality, speed and security of their software delivery and cloud transformations.
"FedRAMP empowers agencies to use modern cloud technologies, with emphasis on security and protection of government information, and helps accelerate the adoption of secure, cloud solutions," said Kyle Tobener, Vice President of Security and IT for Copado. "Now that government agencies have entered the world of the cloud, they must have the agility and flexibility to respond to citizen needs. Copado enables government agencies to respond faster, achieve higher levels of software quality, deliver more digital services and scale to unprecedented demands."
As one of the first federal agencies to work with Copado, the VA needed help organizing nearly a dozen teams with hundreds of developers who were all working on multiple concurrent Salesforce projects. With Copado, the VA was able to cut its deployment time in half and hasn't missed one deployment since implementation. The VA has fully authorized Copado for three years, which allows other federal agencies to expedite their own procurement decisions.
Copado is the only DevOps platform for Salesforce to achieve FedRAMP, ISO 27001, SOC 2 Type 1, and GDPR compliance. As the only cloud-based DevOps solution that meets all of these rigorous standards, Copado is the most trusted low-code delivery platform in the world.
"In light of President Biden's Executive Order on the nation's cybersecurity, the public sector is increasingly moving to secure cloud services," said Casey Coleman, Senior Vice President, Global Government Solutions for Salesforce. "Achieving FedRAMP authorization is a key competitive advantage in the marketplace and demonstrates a commitment to helping public sector agencies accelerate their digital transformation goals. Congratulations to Copado for achieving this important milestone."
Copado's DevOps solutions are available through Carahsoft and its resellers on the following government contracts: SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B, ITES-SW2 Contract W52P1J-20-D-0042, NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement #AR2472, NCPA Contract NCPA01-86, OMNIA Partners Contract #R191902, CA SLP: SLP-17-70-0139E, IN QPA: 0000000000000000000021430, OH MCSA: Ohio Master Cloud SA-0016 and TX DIR 4288: DIR-TSO-4288.
"Copado's FedRAMP ATO designation exemplifies their unwavering commitment to providing secure, reliable and compliant solutions to the Federal Government," said Bethany Blackwell, Vice President of the Salesforce Business Unit at Carahsoft. "This milestone underscores Copado's dedication to helping Federal agencies streamline their DevOps processes, while adhering to the highest standards of security and compliance. We look forward to continuing to deliver innovative technology solutions to Federal agencies with Copado and our reseller partners."
