Continual Improvement

Our Communications Suite tools, including our FedRAMP compliant Communications Cloud marketing platform are protected at our top-tier data centers. In order to better protect your information and optimize reliability, in August of 2017 we migrated a number of our most-utilized applications to data centers which meet the same high standards.

  • Legistar (application and Insite public view)
  • Civica CMS
  • Minutes
  • Video (Government Transparency)
  • Media Manager (Open Platform)

The First and Only FedRAMP Compliant Digital Communications Solutions

Unlike private sector marketing technology, the GovDelivery Communications Cloud is the first and only platform secure enough to be used exclusively by government and proven to double audiences within the first year. This framework saves time and staff required to conduct redundant agency security assessments. Our highly secure environment has withstood comprehensive and rigorous review at the JAB level, approved by CIOs from the General Services Administration (GSA), the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Why FedRAMP Matters

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is the first government-wide security authorization program mandatory for all agencies and all cloud services. Agencies must implement FedRAMP and require it with all vendors they work with contractually.
