In a significant move for data security in the educational and government sectors, Softdocs, a leading provider of process automation platforms, has achieved Level 2 certification in the Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program (TX-RAMP). This milestone positions Softdocs alongside global technology giants such as Workday, Salesforce, Microsoft, and Google, underscoring its commitment to safeguarding sensitive information within its systems.

TX-RAMP certification, particularly at Level 2, is a rigorous process that assesses a company’s data management, security protocols, and governance practices. For Softdocs, obtaining this certification means that its offerings are now recognized as being capable of securely handling confidential data for Texas state agencies, K-12 school districts, and higher education institutions. This is a crucial step forward, given the increasing rate of digital transformation within these sectors.

The importance of robust cybersecurity measures cannot be understated in today’s digitised world. Public institutions, in particular, are custodians of vast amounts of sensitive personal information, making them prime targets for cyber threats. By achieving TX-RAMP Level 2 Certification, Softdocs not only demonstrates its prowess in implementing top-tier security measures but also instills confidence among its clients that their data is in safe hands.

This development is timely, considering the growing adoption of Softdocs in various Texan institutions, including Katy ISD, which ranks as the fifth-largest school district in the state. The certification reassures these entities that by choosing Softdocs, they are not only optimizing their operational processes through automation but are also doing so without compromising on security.

Softdocs’ COO, Steve Johnston, expressed the company’s dedication to meeting the stringent security standards required in the present SaaS landscape. He emphasized that the TX-RAMP certification is a testament to Softdocs’ unwavering commitment to both its product’s robustness and the security of its clients’ documents and data.

Looking forward, Softdocs is positioning itself to demonstrate its leadership in the process automation and document management space. The company is scheduled to participate in several industry events, including Ellucian Live in San Antonio, TX, in April, and the Texas Connected Consortium, also in San Antonio, in May. These platforms will offer Softdocs an opportunity to showcase its certified solutions to a wider audience, further solidifying its standing in the market.

With nearly a thousand organizations across the U.S. relying on Softdocs for process automation and document management solutions, this TX-RAMP Level 2 Certification marks a significant stride in the company’s journey towards enabling secure digital transformation for schools, states, counties, and cities across the nation.
