Acuant today announced it has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Joint Authorization Board (JAB) FedRAMP Moderate Provisional-Authority To Operate (P-ATO) for its Acuant AssureID™, Ozone® and Facial Recognition System (COFRS) offerings. Acuant’s digital identity solution is now available in the FedRAMP marketplace to power more secure and user-friendly identity verification.
While the demand for federal government digital identity solutions has long existed, the high uptick in fraud during the pandemic has increased the need for modernization and security. Acuant is currently a trusted government partner providing highly accurate and easy-to-use identity verification services. The FedRAMP Moderate JAB P-ATO authorization – as vetted by the CIOs from the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the General Services Administration (GSA) – confirms that these SaaS offerings meet all security and privacy controls for government-wide use and establishes a continuous monitoring and annual assessment program of the ongoing risk posture of these offerings. The JAB P-ATO can be leveraged by any government agency, thereby driving wider adoption across government agencies.
Currently, the General Services Administration (GSA) Login.gov Program leverages COFRS for identity proofing on behalf of its federal customers in support of disaster relief, retirement system, citizen benefits program systems.
“This achievement exemplifies the level of excellence that Acuant strives for in all we do,” said Acuant President and CEO Yossi Zekri. “Working with the government sector for many years, we understand what it truly means to be security and privacy-minded. Achieving FedRAMP Authorization for cloud-based identity proofing is another validation we are leading in the market. We look forward to expanding our services with this sector to provide updated, safer and more trusted transactions.”
