How StateRAMP Helps Providers Fulfill TX-RAMP Compliance

by Liz Huston
In June 2021, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a new cybersecurity law. The law and updated policies enacted by the Department of Information Resources (DIR) requires cloud vendors doing business with the State of Texas to be StateRAMP, FedRAMP, or TX-RAMP certified.

StateRAMP satisfies TX-RAMP requirements, with full reciprocity granted from TX-RAMP. If you are StateRAMP Ready or Authorized, you are automatically granted TX-RAMP certification. StateRAMP has a weekly automated sync, and every Friday afternoon, StateRAMP Authorized Products appear on the TX-RAMP list with ease.
