SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Axon Enterprise Inc. , (“Axon”) (NASDAQ: AXON) the global public safety technology leader, achieved high impact status by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Joint Authorization Board (JAB) for its cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.

This status upgrade allows US government customers to safely leverage the Axon network with full trust, backed by FedRAMP’s highest impact level of security.

There is a constant need to ensure sensitive information is protected across agencies and administrations as the government securely conducts business,” said Richard Coleman, Axon Vice President and General Manager of Federal Sector. “Axon is proud to serve the US government in this capacity and we continue to deepen our trusted relationships with federal agencies who see the value in our products, mission and commitment to law enforcement and communities.”
The Axon FedCloud system, which is the SaaS cloud-based solution that has received high impact status, operates as an isolated region of Axon Cloud Services that is dedicated to the US Federal community. US Axon FedCloud offerings include Axon Evidence, Axon Respond, and Axon Records, and also acts as the core control center over Axon devices and client applications. Axon FedCloud is currently being used by many agencies across the federal sector, including the United States Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the Department of Interior
ABOUT AXON FEDCLOUD SYSTEM

FedRAMP is a US Federal program that standardizes the assessment and authorization process for companies that are looking to provide cloud-based services to US Federal agencies. This standardization allows for a “do once, repeat many” process that agencies can leverage to reduce rework of security assessments, authorizations, and continuous monitoring. The efficiency gains from this process allow for smoother federal procurement and facilitate modernization efforts.
