Nintex is thrilled to announce the general availability of FedRAMP®-authorized Nintex Automation Cloud for Government! Nintex has received authorization at the Moderate security impact level from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP)—see the Nintex listing on the FedRAMP marketplace. Nintex has also acquired a similar Canadian federal government “authority to operate” (ATO) recently announced by our partner OranguTech to better address the automation needs of the Canadian government market. 

FedRAMP authorization ensures Nintex cloud services meet the rigorous FedRAMP security and compliance guidelines required for doing business with U.S. federal government agencies. As such, this authorization opens new opportunities for Nintex to assist U.S. state and federal government agencies and defense contractors in automating manual processes and creating low-code applications for everyday tasks. 

With Nintex Automation Cloud for Government, government agencies and contractors can securely transform their manual, paper-based, internal and citizen-facing processes to boost productivity and efficiency while minimizing errors and delays, meeting regulatory requirements, and enhancing constituent experience. Agencies can use Nintex to automate processes for citizen services like FOIA requests, employee and contractor onboarding, risk and regulatory compliance, case management, or claims processing.
