Hootsuite Enterprise achieves FedRAMP Authorization
VANCOUVER, BC – March 16, 2021 - Hootsuite, the global leader in social media management, today officially announced its Hootsuite Enterprise offering has achieved the FedRAMP (Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program) Authorized designation. A growing number of government agencies (The US Department of the Interior, the Department of State, the US Marines, and FEMA) are leveraging Hootsuite’s social media management software and 150+ app ecosystem to achieve a wide range of federally-related objectives.
“COVID-19 has accelerated digital transformation exponentially,” said Tom Keiser, CEO at Hootsuite. “With the world relying more heavily on social networks for communication, community, and global e-commerce, it’s more important than ever to ensure our security practices are constantly evolving to meet a rigorous set of standards. With our FedRAMP ATO, the US Federal Government, and all Hootsuite customers, can feel confident that we are constantly improving on our security practices.”
Although data from Edelman suggests only a 68% level of trust in tech companies in 2021, Hootsuite believes its commitment to risk mitigation, through the implementation of highly secure data protection infrastructures will renew confidence.
“Hootsuite has many customers who may be under additional obligations and regulations due to their industry, such as financial services, non-profit, education, and government,” added Ryan Donovan, Chief Technology Officer at Hootsuite. “Our FedRAMP ATO, and integrations with partners such as digital risk protection platform, ZeroFOX, and cybersecurity solution, Proofpoint, help to provide that added layer of protection and trust that they require.”
In the FedRAMP process, Hootsuite worked closely with the US Department of the Interior (DOI), who sponsored Hootsuite through the designation process and issued an ATO letter in accordance with FedRAMP. FedRAMP designations translate to greater confidence in security due to the rigorous standards—creating the foundations for standardized security and compliance.
