Euna Procurement awarded TX-RAMP Level 2 Authorization

Texas’ certification affirms Euna’s commitment to the highest standards of data security and privacy for its public sector customers

Euna Solutions™, a leading provider of purpose-built, cloud-based solutions for the public sector, today announced Euna Procurement, powered by Bonfire – the nation’s leading network of 2,000 public sector purchasers and 750,000 vendors – has been awarded a Level 2 Authorization in the Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program (TX-RAMP). The certification indicates a cloud service provider has met stringent security requirements for handling sensitive state agency data in Texas.

“Our TX-RAMP Level 2 Authorization reflects our commitment to the highest standards of data security and privacy for our clients,” said Chris Kubic, chief information security officer at Euna Solutions. “The TX-RAMP certification’s significance cannot be understated, considering the high bar Texas sets in securing it’s government technology, and it’s an important signal of the state’s confidence in Euna Solutions.”

TX-RAMP is led by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR). TX-RAMP Level 2 Authorization is noteworthy for several reasons, including:

  • Enhanced Data Security and Privacy: TX-RAMP Level 2 Authorization sets specific security and privacy standards that service providers must meet to handle Texas state data. Level 2 requires a more stringent assessment of the cloud service provider’s capabilities to protect sensitive information, ensuring that data is managed securely and in compliance with state regulations.
  • Compliance with State Regulations: Achieving TX-RAMP Level 2 Authorization demonstrates that a service provider complies with all applicable Texas state laws and regulations regarding data security and privacy.
  • Trust and Credibility: Certification establishes a level of trust and credibility for service providers with potential state agency clients. It signals to these agencies that the service provider has undergone rigorous evaluation against the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) security controls and can protect state data against cyber threats.
  • Continuous Improvement: The process of obtaining and maintaining TX-RAMP Level 2 Authorization encourages continuous improvement in security practices. Providers must regularly assess and update their security measures to comply with the evolving standards and threats, thereby enhancing their overall security posture.

“TX-RAMP certification is also an indicator of Texas’ leadership at the federal, state, and local levels by driving consistent NIST and StateRAMP-based security controls and processes. This benefits communities of all sizes, ranging from large metros or universities to small towns and schools,” added Kubic. “It’s a model we look forward to seeing emerge in more states across the country.”

Agencies already benefiting from Euna Procurement’s TX-RAMP certification include Austin ISD and Employee Retirement System of Texas (ERS).
