Zoom for Government Achieves StateRAMP Authorization and Adheres to CJIS Standards

We are very excited to announce that Zoom for Government has now been given StateRAMP Moderate authorization, which means that our company is now listed on the StateRAMP authorized vendor list. Achieving this goal is only enhanced by the fact that our system is compliant with the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) standards established by the FBI.

Details on StateRAMP

In order to earn a StateRAMP qualification, service providers must meet the cybersecurity standards set forth by state and local governments in order to provide solutions to them. In the same manner that FedRAMP is built upon NIST Special Publication 800-53 Rev. 4 requirements, this program follows the requirements outlined in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-53 Rev. 5. In this case, state and local governments are provided with continuous visibility into the security postures of their vendors through a combination of third-party assessment and continuous monitoring.

There have been recent announcements that Zoom for Government will be granted StateRAMP Moderate authorizations, which include Zoom Meetings, Zoom Chat, Zoom Phone, Zoom Rooms, Zoom Rooms Connector, and Zoom API, along with other products.

Supporting public safety with CJIS

A primary objective of CJIS is to safeguard private and sensitive information that law enforcement agencies across the country collect, as well as information from the federal government, state, and local governments. A set of standards has been introduced by CJIS to ensure that sensitive information that is gathered and processed by the Department of Justice is kept confidential. As a result of Zoom’s CJIS compliance, we are able to confirm that all of our processes and systems are in compliance with their set of policies, which relate to wireless networking, data encryption, remote access, etc.

In keeping with Zoom for Government’s commitment to these standards, our company remains committed to helping first responders and public safety officials secure and support their missions as well as ensuring that first responders and public safety officials are protected. In addition, CJIS serves as the primary source of information and services for all agencies working in law enforcement, national security, and intelligence communities.

Seamless and secure

In addition to our commitment to these standards, we aim to provide our public sector users with a seamless, secure, and seamless experience. It is clear that these standards will continue to serve as an integral component of the work we are doing to build a platform that is both trustworthy and scalable as we continue to develop Zoom for Government.

Because Zoom for Government is a very simple and secure platform, the user experience is similar to what commercial Zoom users are familiar with and value. The only difference is that Zoom for Government has been specially designed to meet the unique requirements of the United States federal government agencies. A platform like this, which is available in two different versions, is designed to be scalable and flexible, so that today’s governments can use it to accomplish their objectives while at the same time protecting the data that is shared across the platform.

It has been confirmed that Zoom has been approved at a moderate FedRAMP level for Government purposes, as well as being granted Provisional Authorizations (PA) by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to use Zoom Meetings at DoD Impact Level 4 (IL4) and an Authorization of Operating (ATO) for the Department of the Air Force to use Zoom Meetings in DoD IL4. HIPAA compliance is also made easier with Zoom for Government.
