Cyber attacks on state and local governments have been an unfortunate reality for some time, and this has only increased with the past couple years, with the global pandemic changing how businesses are run and creating new vulnerabilities for attack. This increased vulnerability has highlighted the need for solutions like Box, that are built with frictionless security integrated into the platform, and that was what led to the creation of StateRAMP.
StateRAMP is a coalition of service providers, government officials, and third party assessors who have joined together to create a set of cybersecurity standards for solutions being utilized by state and local government. This “verify once, serve many” approach creates an authorized solution marketplace of vendors deemed sufficiently secure to serve state and local government organizations, and we are happy to announce that Box has joined that exclusive list.
The Box web application and many of our addons are now StateRAMP Authorized and are available for state and local government organizations on the StateRAMP Authorized Vendor List. Through achieving StateRAMP Authorized status, Box is showing it’s commitment to offering a secure product that meets and exceeds the security requirements of our state & local customers.
