Today, iboss, the leading Zero Trust cloud security provider, is proud to announce that it has achieved State Risk and Authorization Management Program (StateRAMP) Authorized status. This milestone is indicative of iboss' unyielding dedication to assisting state agencies and local governments to secure their users and data from an evolving landscape of cyber threats.
StateRAMP provides an equivalent security baseline to FedRAMP. iboss takes pride in being able to meet and exceed both of these rigorous security standards. With rising challenges posed by cybersecurity threats to government agencies, iboss provides an innovative, robust solution that reduces risks, lowers costs, and increases productivity and security.
Built on a revolutionary Zero Trust Security Service Edge (SSE) platform, iboss provides a comprehensive and integrated cloud-based security solution that replaces legacy VPNs, Proxy appliances, and VDI with a single, unified service. The iboss platform includes ZTNA to replace legacy VPN, Security Service Edge to replace legacy proxies, and Browser Isolation to replace legacy VDI.
iboss includes ZTNA, CASB, malware defense, compliance policies, DLP, Browser Isolation, and logging that applies to users inside and outside the office. It scales to secure traffic volume as functionality is delivered within the cloud security service instead of strictly with appliances hosted within the data center.
The iboss Zero Trust SSE implements the concepts in the NIST 800-207 and is a technical implementation of the centerpiece of this model. Organizations, such as state and local government agencies, wishing to implement Zero Trust according to the NIST 800-207 Zero Trust Architecture principles can use iboss to do so as it forms the technology foundation of this architecture. The NIST 800-207 model provides a strong and clear foundation for organizations to implement Zero Trust which greatly reduces cyber risk, breaches, and data loss.
“Achieving the StateRAMP certification signifies that the iboss Zero Trust SSE platform meets the rigorous security standards required by state and local governments,” said Paul Martini, CEO of iboss. “We’re proud to achieve this certification, as it strengthens our mission to provide government entities with the most secure, efficient, and comprehensive Zero Trust Security solutions.”
StateRAMP is a program that delivers a uniform approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services for state and local governments.

OPEXUS, formerly known as AINS, LLC, and leader in government process management software, today announces it has attained StateRAMP authorization for eCASE®, a built-for-government case management solution that streamlines workflows and accelerates key government processes.
StateRAMP was established in 2020 to efficiently verify that service providers meet the cloud security standards required to do business with state and local governments. The StateRAMP verification process, built upon the widely accepted National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-53 framework, and independently audited by a reputable third-party assessment organization (3PAO), ensures the highest level of security and compliance. Achievement of this authorization underscores the company's dedication to supporting state and local governments with cutting-edge technology that enhances productivity, flexibility, and collaboration.
With this certification, OPEXUS will empower state, local, and educational (SLED) agencies to elevate trust in public institutions with dynamic case management and rapid application development technology that was purpose-built for the government. OPEXUS supports public sector human resources teams by providing an umbrella of workforce management tools that include eCASE® EEO/eComplaint and eCASE® ER/LR. The company also offers eCASE® Audit and eCASE® Investigations, case-management tools built specifically for government auditors and investigators.
"State and local government agencies experience many challenges keeping pace with private sector advancements in technology, cyber security, and data security software – from long purchasing timelines to budget constraints, but they cannot compromise on security,” said Howard Langsam, CEO of OPEXUS. “By demonstrating our security qualifications through StateRAMP, we are removing one more barrier to these agencies being able to purchase cloud solutions that meet both their operational and security requirements.”
In 2014, OPEXUS attained FedRAMP authorization at the moderate level for its eCASE®, eCASE® COTS and FOIAXpress® solutions, including Audit, Investigations, Employee & Labor Relations, and EEO Complaints. The company has also achieved Defense Information Systems Agency Impact Level 2 (DISA IL2), FISMA, NIST 800-53 Revision 4, and FIPS certifications.

Clarius Mobile Health, a leading provider of high-definition handheld ultrasound systems, has been selected by the Government of Canada to participate in the new Global Hypergrowth Project (GHP), powered by the Federal Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development. GHP is designed to help the country’s most promising scale-up companies to further fuel their growth with the support of a team of experts with extensive public and private sector experience.
“Canada wins when cutting-edge companies keep operations, profits, and jobs here at home. And when they scale up around the world, they signal that Canada is open for business,” said Minister Mary Ng. “With the Global Hypergrowth Project, we're doubling down on Canada's most promising firms, to help them scale up, from here.”
Clarius has an ambitious mission to improve patient care globally and reduce healthcare costs by enabling clinicians to instantly look into a patient’s body to confidently diagnose disease and enhance procedural safety. The company was the first to develop a high-definition pocket-size wireless ultrasound scanner that works with an app on Apple and Android smart devices. Since Clarius began selling its ultrasound scanners in 2016, more than 20,000 clinicians have used them performing more than 3.8 million scans. Clarius currently employs over 150 people at its headquarters, an innovation center and manufacturing facility in Vancouver, British Columbia.
“We share the government of Canada’s goal to build a vibrant, local medical technology community and we’re extremely honoured to be one of a select few innovative companies in Canada chosen to participate in the Global Hypergrowth Project,” said Clarius CEO Ohad Arazi. “Having our government’s support for funding, international expansion, access to government procurement projects, and more will help rapidly accelerate our growth. Our team is energized to be recognized as one of Canada’s 15 most promising companies!”
Minimum criteria for participation in the GHP include: annual revenues of $30 million; 40% gross margin; 30% revenue compound annual growth over the last three years; and headquarters in Canada with at least 60% employees based in the country.
