From FIPS to FedRAMP

For government agencies, secure communication isn’t simply preferable. It’s the law. The Zipit Enterprise Critical Messaging Solution™ offers a proven communications system that meets federal regulations for data security.

Zipit has already been adopted by a variety of government agencies, including VA medical centers, municipal police departments and nearly every branch of the military. Our comprehensive, two-way critical messaging platform is HIPAA/HITECH compliant as well as FIPS encrypted. We created a dedicated cloud environment specifically for Federal Government customers in JAB-approved, FedRAMP-compliant infrastructure, making our solution the first critical messaging solution to meet this necessary federal requirement.

Government Agencies That Trust Zipit

“Our officers are typically flooded with texts and emails throughout the day. Important messages can easily be missed because standard texts and emails can’t communicate the urgency of a situation. Ninety percent of our Zipit messages are sent using its Mayday feature, the highest priority. This way, when our officers receive a Zipit message, they immediately know it’s an emergency. We looked at other solutions, and Zipit was far superior in addressing our communication needs.”

Improving Veteran Care Through Improved Productivity

One government agency that’s benefitting from Zipit is the Department of Veterans Affairs. In VA medical centers around the country, clinical teams are seeing improved response times in critical situations. Two-way messaging has improved communication workflow. And our cloud-based administration portal, Zipit RAP™, provides an audit trail for ongoing process support.

More specifically, our Smart Message™ feature enables VA clinicians to automate alerts, escalate messages to ensure rapid response and notification when team members have read a message. Smart Message provides the tools necessary to help coordinate teams and deliver a higher level of care when every second matters.

It’s reliable—the solution operates on Verizon’s advanced network. And it’s secure, even by rigorous military standards. When you also consider the two-way accountability built in to Zipit and the strategic advantage of silent communications, it’s no wonder the military finds this an indispensable tool for successful operations.
