Qualtrics Announces New Designations; Accepted into the US Department of Defense Tradewind Solutions Marketplace
Today Qualtrics (Provo and Seattle) announced two new security authorizations that will make it faster and easier for government agencies to collect feedback from stakeholders, uncover insights and take action to improve experiences for residents, customers and employees.
This announcement was made at the AWS Summit Washington, DC taking place June 7-8 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
In addition, Qualtrics is the first experience management provider to be accepted into the US Department of Defense Tradewind Solutions Marketplace as a vetted provider of technology solutions for federal agencies.
Ensuring secure data environments for state and local government
StateRAMP is non-profit State Risk and Authorization Management Program established to serve public institutions by providing a respected and recognized certification program for cloud cybersecurity excellence. It is awarded to companies that have implemented robust cybersecurity policies, procedures and technologies to safeguard against cyber threats in state and local government. Inspired by and based on the FedRAMP standards and framework, StateRAMP provides a streamlined process for assessing the security of cloud-based solutions and ensuring regulatory compliance.
In achieving StateRAMP certification, Qualtrics demonstrates its dedication to providing state and local government customers with the highest level of cybersecurity protection possible. The certification also reinforces the company's commitment to staying ahead of emerging cyber threats and continuously improving its security measures. State and local government data and processing will be migrated to Gov1, a Qualtrics StateRAMP authorized data center powered by AWS.
Governments around the world leverage Qualtrics to better understand the experiences residents, customers and employees are having with their organization to pinpoint improvements that maximize impact. This StateRAMP certification for state and local governments builds on the company’s 2018 FedRAMP Moderate authorization. Qualtrics will continue to prioritize cloud cybersecurity as a critical component of its operations, and will maintain its certifications to continue providing world-class products and services to government agencies at all levels.
Inclusion in DoD’s vetted marketplace will fast track Qualtrics as a federal government solution provider
Qualtrics has been accepted into the US Department of Defense (DoD) Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) Tradewind Solutions Marketplace (TSM), a digital repository of post-competition, readily-awardable technology solutions. With its platform now competitively evaluated and readily-awardable for the DoD, Qualtrics is making it easier and faster for federal agencies to procure its industry-leading experience management solutions.
The CDAO is responsible for the acceleration of the DoD’s adoption of data, analytics and AI to generate decision advantage from the boardroom to the battlefield. To achieve this designation, the Qualtrics XM Platform was assessed and vetted through competitive procedures which satisfy the competition requirements of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 6, and the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Part 206.
“Qualtrics is committed to maintaining the highest bar for security and compliance, and today’s news is a testament to our efforts to help governments improve the experiences they deliver to residents and employees while also protecting the data they collect and analyze on our platform,” said Chelsie Bright, head of public sector industries at Qualtrics. “By achieving these milestones, Qualtrics is easing the burden on resource-constrained decision-makers at all levels of government who find themselves considering new technology partnerships and managing supplier risk.”
