San Antonio, TX – August 1, 2023 – Fortra’s Digital Defense, leading provider of information security governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) solutions”), announced that it has received the Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program (TX-RAMP) certification.
TX-RAMP was instituted by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) to establish a state-wide risk and authorization management program. This program takes a standardized approach toward security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring of cloud computing services that process state agency data. DIR has implemented a framework for information collecting from cloud security services. Then it assesses the responses within the compliance and required documentation and standards.
Texas state agencies that need to comply with these requirements – including public, private, and community colleges that implement cloud services, any state agencies that contract with cloud service providers, and those cloud providers that also need to demonstrate security criteria compliance -- can now use Fortra’s Digital Defense Frontline Vulnerability Manager.
Frontline VM maintains the highest standards adhering to compliance and regulations. Get more information about how Digital Defense implements a large number of solutions, like PCI-ASV, that help with many key industry compliance and regulations.
