July 18, 2016, LEHI, UT—Pursuing a rigorous path of refinements and enhancements to security measures, EOS.Web is now moving nearer to achieving FedRAMP compliance. EOS.Web, a SirsiDynix company, provides sophisticated library management solutions for special libraries. In an effort to meet the needs of its unique and exceptional libraries, EOS.Web is pursuing FedRAMP compliance, a federal authorization which recognizes highly secure and responsible cloud services. EOS.Web aims to become the first provider in the industry to achieve FedRAMP compliance.

FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, is a standardized authorization program designed to provide security assessment and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The requirements of FedRAMP are designed to comply with the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA), an act passed in recognition of the importance of and need for increased information security among U.S. government agencies.

SirsiDynix currently leads the industry in its pursuit of FedRAMP. The SirsiDynix SaaS offering includes options for use of a data processing facility which is already FedRAMP-certified. The only remaining requirement is to add certain features to the EOS.Web software. Guiding the progress to FedRAMP compliance is the SirsiDynix Information Security Officer, a former FISMA auditor for the Department of Defense (DoD). As part of the path to compliance SirsiDynix has already obtained TRUSTe Seal, as well as accreditation to the FISMA and ISO 27001 standards. Additionally, SirsiDynix provides its libraries with 24/7 critical care line for support anytime and responsive resolutions.

Affirming the SirsiDynix dedication to FedRAMP, CEO Bill Davison remarked, “The importance of information security cannot be overstated. In this age of cyber terrorism and information theft, we understand the urgent need to provide the greatest levels of security possible to our customers. FedRAMP compliance has been a rigorous process—as it should be. We are eager to complete the requirements of the process and look forward to offering EOS.Web as a FedRAMP compliant solution.”
