Zoom Contact Center for Zoom for Government receives FedRAMP® JAB authorization

Published June 4, 2024

Today, Zoom announced that The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) Joint Authorization Board (JAB) authorized Zoom Contact Center for Zoom for Government as a JAB Moderate system, adding to Zoom for Government’s growing list of authorized products, solidifying the company’s commitment to the U.S. government space. Now, organizations that support U.S. government missions with Zoom Essentials and Zoom Premium plans will have a FedRAMP-authorized contact center offering available to them, all within the familiar Zoom experience. Zoom for Government was initially FedRAMP authorized in March of 2019 and received collective JAB approval in July of 2023, a testament to the security of the Zoom for Government platform. 

According to a KPMG survey, only 38% of respondents said they feel like a valued customer when dealing with the government, and in a recent Accenture report, 53% of respondents shared that they found it frustrating to access public services. Zoom Contact Center for Zoom for Government enables organizations to deliver prompt, accurate, and highly personalized customer experiences to drive loyalty and help customers feel valued and heard.

“The Zoom for Government offering was built to be secure and scalable, supporting the Federal Government’s mission, and now with the addition of Zoom Contact Center, Federal agencies can provide an enhanced customer and employee experience around government services, constituent services, IT help desks, and more,” said Matt Mandrgoc, head of U.S. public sector at Zoom. “We’ve seen tremendous success with Zoom Contact Center adoption in such a short amount of time, and we are excited to bring that to our customers. Our commitment to the customer and employee experience was the catalyst for our latest Zoom for Government offering, so receiving this certification on an accelerated time frame is a testament to our ongoing dedication and commitment to our U.S. government customers.” 

What is FedRAMP?

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP®) provides a standardized approach to security authorizations for Cloud Service Offerings. FedRAMP establishes a public-private partnership to promote innovation and advance more secure information technologies.

What is JAB?
