DocuSign has obtained Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program certification from Federal Communications Commission to offer a cloud-based electronic transaction service in support of the government’s digital transformation efforts.
The company said Tuesday it aims to help customer agencies automate and digitize paper-based workflows that need signatures.
“Federal agencies are looking for cloud computing technology to help deliver the cost, agility and innovation benefits… while maintaining privacy, security and compliance with FedRAMP and other government requirements,” said DocuSign CEO Dan Springer.
Prior to ATO accreditation, Coalfire Systems reviewed and validated the security of DocuSign’s offering as a certified third-party assessment organization under the federal government’s cloud computing program.
The DocuSign for Federal Government platform is designed to store and encrypt agency data as well as support personal identity verification and common access cards.
The company also maintains a portfolio of digital and electronic signature technologies.
Barton Phillips, vice president of DocuSign’s public sector business, noted that FCC has shown interest to implement e-signatures on the agency’s procurement and human resources transactions.
