OwnBackup, the leading SaaS data protection platform, today announced it has achieved FedRAMP® authorization for its OwnBackup Government Cloud solution. With this authorization, OwnBackup is now listed on the FedRAMP® Marketplace, and is eligible to provide data protection services to all U.S. Federal Government customers.
Established in 2011, FedRAMP® is a government-wide program that promotes the adoption of secure Cloud services across the Federal Government, forming a public-private partnership to promote innovation and the advancement of more secure information technologies. By achieving FedRAMP® authorization, OwnBackup has demonstrated that it meets the rigorous security and compliance requirements of the program to host sensitive information in the Cloud.
“FedRAMP® authorization is a significant milestone for OwnBackup, and reaffirms our position as the market leader in SaaS data protection,” said Sam Gutmann, Chief Executive Officer at OwnBackup. “This designation allows us to bring our best-in-class solutions to Federal Government agencies, partnering with these vital organizations to accelerate their digital transformation goals, while ensuring that critical Federal Data and Metadata remains secure.”
OwnBackup’s FedRAMP® announcement comes at a time when the U.S. Government is making cybersecurity a clear priority. Earlier this year, the Biden-Harris Administration announced a new National Cybersecurity Strategy focused on strengthening the Nation's digital infrastructure, emphasizing the importance of Cloud security and resilience, and protecting citizens and businesses from cyber threats. While no individual or company is immune to cyber threats, these attacks disproportionately target the public sector.
The public sector manages a wide array of sensitive information, making it a popular target for cyber criminals. According to Verizon’s 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), the public sector had the second most attacks of any industry. With OwnBackup, U.S. Government Agencies can be better prepared to avoid disruption to critical services, ensure a continuity of operations, and uphold trust and confidence with the citizens that they serve.
OwnBackup’s Data Protection Platform, which is used by over 6,000 customers across critical SaaS ecosystems, was designed with security in mind from its inception. OwnBackup’s solutions are architected with a variety of security controls across multiple tiers to address a range of security risks.

Co-founded by seasoned data recovery, data protection, and information security experts, OwnBackup is a trusted independent software vendor (ISV) partner on the Salesforce AppExchange, AWS Marketplace, and Microsoft Marketplace. The Company is headquartered in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, with research and development (R&D), support, and other functions in Israel, EMEA and APAC. OwnBackup has raised over $500 million in venture funding, is ranked on the Forbes Cloud 100 as one of the world's top private cloud companies, and is the partner of choice for some of the world’s largest users of SaaS applications.

Steady, whose fintech platform helps more than 6 million workers nationwide to track and boost their income, today announced the launch of Steady Impact. As the social impact arm of the popular app, Steady Impact is already the leading administrator and data provider for cash assistance programs across the country, having distributed $115 million to more than 700,000 individuals through partnerships with city governments and community-based organizations.
"When we set out to launch our cash assistance program for San Diegans impacted by the pandemic, we knew that success would depend on a partner who not only had the technological capacity to deliver support to families in need, but also shared our mission of uplifting the community," said Khea Pollard, Director of Economic Mobility and Opportunity for Jewish Family Service of San Diego. "It's been clear from the beginning that Steady Impact believes deeply in that mission. Their unparalleled understanding of what it takes to build, maintain, and measure an effective cash assistance initiative is helping thousands of families across the region recover stronger."
Steady Impact has helped to develop and administer cash assistance programs in cities from Atlanta to Santa Fe to Baltimore, as well as innovative initiatives launched by community organizations and nonprofits like the Black Music Action Coalition's OnRamp. The company's technology is also used to help program leaders measure the impact of cash assistance on recipients' financial health, and Steady Impact works in partnership with the country's foremost coalitions and research organizations focused on the topic, including Mayors for a Guaranteed Income and the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Guaranteed Income Research.
"A growing body of research suggests that cash assistance can be one of the most effective drivers of financial stability and economic mobility," said Adam Roseman, Co-Founder and President of Steady. "The launch of Steady Impact is not just recognition of work we've been doing for a long time. It's also a renewal of our commitment to leveraging technology to scale what works in the fight against endemic wealth and opportunity gaps."
Co-founded by Shaquille O'Neal, Steady launched in 2017 with the goal of harnessing the potential of emerging technology to alleviate poverty. The company now works with several state governments to streamline the administration of unemployment insurance, SNAP, Medicaid, and other safety net benefits for non-standard workers, who now make up an estimated one-third of the U.S. labor force.
"Steady's mission of making more people financially healthy is incredibly personal to me," said Shaquille O'Neal. "This is the next step in the company's efforts to make sure that everyone has the financial resources to support themselves and their families."
At Steady ,we make data work for the non-standard workforce (1099, gig, and contingent workers). We partner with governments and financial institutions to help their systems work better for the workers we serve. Our flagship 1099 verification of income solution, Income Passport, is promoting access, equity and program integrity across the US. By extracting insights from data on more than 1.5 billion enriched financial transactions and over 151 billion enriched deposits, we help streamline benefits administration, quantify earnings, expand access to credit, reduce fraud, and improve outcomes.
