Government agencies and the defense industrial base in the United States have been relying on Nintex Workflow and Forms to effectively manage, automate and optimize a wide-range of processes including their most mission-critical workflows leveraging our on-premises software.
That is why in today’s post I am pleased to share details on our investments and progress to make the next generation Nintex Workflow Cloud achieve FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) authorization by late 2021.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.
Nintex Workflow Cloud® will join Nintex’s existing FedRAMP authorized cloud service, Nintex Drawloop DocGen® for Salesforce hosted on Project Hosts. Nintex Drawloop has already received the FedRAMP Moderate Impact level authorization – for automating the assembly and distribution of digital documents.
The path to FedRamp by 2022
We have been working on building the necessary infrastructure in the Government Community Cloud and are on track to complete by the summer of 2021, when we expect to have received the “In Process” program designation by the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) for Nintex Workflow Cloud. This will be a significant milestone as we will have completed a number of key steps towards final authorization. Our focus will then shift to obtaining an agency “Authority to Operate” (ATO) and ultimately FedRAMP authorization.
The “In Process” designation also formally acknowledges our continued commitment to serving federal customers and adhering to strong security guidelines required to keep federal data safe and secure. Our plan is to complete the agency ATO and FedRAMP authorization and achieve the FedRAMP Moderate authorization for Nintex Workflow Cloud, in late 2021.
Upon completion of the Moderate authorization it is our intent to immediately proceed to seeking a ‘FedRAMP High’ authorization.
Achieving FedRAMP authorization will allow U.S. federal government departments and agencies to adopt Nintex process management and automation software to accelerate digital transformation and realize immediate benefits by eliminating paper-based and manual processes.
Nintex Workflow Cloud and FedRAMP
Nintex Workflow Cloud leverages Microsoft’s Azure Government cloud services. Azure has the maximum tier for FedRAMP accreditation allowing it to process highly sensitive government data.
Take a look at how the SFMTA (San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency) is eliminating paper-based processes and the storage of paper files from its office in San Francisco with Nintex Workflow and Nintex Forms. SFMTA reports more than 100,000 workflow executions for vital business processes agency-wide.
Government agencies and cloud computing
Today public and private sector organizations are all faced with new challenges (and opportunities) as well as the need to rapidly transform the way people work.
State, local, and national government agencies can accelerate digital transformation initiatives and do so confidently with Nintex automation software, while maintaining rigorous security and access controls in accordance with federal laws.
Take a look at how the City and County of Denver rapidly virtualized its emergency operations center with Nintex Workflow and Nintex Forms during COVID-19.
Also see how the City of Garland in Texas has saved more than $4 million with Nintex Workflow, Nintex Forms, Nintex Mobile Apps, and Nintex Analytics by enabling its staff members to build their own custom solutions.
