CAMPBELL, Calif., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE) today announced that it is the first end-to-end enterprise collaboration solution to attain FedRAMP "in process" status, with sponsorship from its existing customer, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). When full certification is completed later this year, Jive's FedRAMP-certified collaboration hub solution will include new and enhanced security features, such as restricted production access, unique key-based encryption at rest, additional disaster recovery and ITAR compliance, as well as a certified FedRAMP cloud infrastructure hosted via the Amazon Web Services GovCloud.
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. Its certification assessment process includes an in-depth examination of a solution's data security and data governance capabilities, as well as the security practices of its cloud services. Working with NASA to coordinate progress with the FedRAMP Program Management Office, Jive has completed all preparatory steps and is currently in the independent testing phase with a third-party assessment organization.
"Reaching this milestone is an exciting development for Jive, as well as for our customers in government agencies and several other regulated industries," said David Cook, chief security officer at Jive Software. "When FedRAMP certification is achieved, it will validate our no-compromise approach to delivering a highly available, private and secure architecture that protects confidentiality across the millions of people who depend on Jive to drive mission-critical business processes and keep their information safe every day."
A number of respected third-party agencies already certify and audit Jive's environment on a regular basis. Jive's current certifications include SOC2, ISO and SSAE 16 SOC1, and Jive is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA). Several government agencies already use Jive as a collaboration hub, including NASA, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, the United States Army and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
