The technology landscape continues to evolve and advance at a record pace. The collective transformation towards a global and flexible workforce has only been accelerated in today’s climate and businesses require solutions that will help them build and maintain competitive advantages.
As businesses attempt to balance the need for innovation with the risk of technology, it is important to find solutions and partners that understand not only their market, but also how to secure their solution, and ultimately your data. This means making strategic investments and decisions that look beyond superficial perceptions and are rooted in proven best practices.
This is what JAMIS has achieved with their Prime ERP solution. By partnering with Acumatica, a global, top-rated Cloud ERP solution, JAMIS has struck a balance between security, usability, and maximization of their clients’ return on investment.
JAMIS’s partnership with Acumatica exhibits a commitment to leading the way in technology and innovation, by utilizing a partner that serves over 7,000 clients that collectively service millions of users worldwide. In addition to being recognized by Gartner, IDC, and Nucleus Research, Acumatica services a large number of well-known and respected organizations in some of the most regulated industries, including Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, and Government.
Because of JAMIS Prime’s focus on supporting Government Contractors, we understand the complexities and intricacies that come with serving the U.S. Government. To ensure we’re balancing the innovation and usability with security and compliance, we maintain a state-of-the-art cybersecurity, data protection, and compliance program for the JAMIS Prime application. In addition to obtaining 3rd party compliance reports and independently evaluating Acumatica’s compliance posture, JAMIS reviews in-depth the Veracode Static Application Code Scanning and Dynamic Application Code Scanning results for Acumatica on a regular basis.
Additionally, JAMIS has implemented best practices and standards for all its own unique code, that is built, supported, and delivered exclusively on U.S. soil. In addition to the security best practices followed, JAMIS maintains a compliance environment in accordance with DCAA, FAR, NIST 800-171 and is preparing for the go through the upcoming CMMC certification. We maintain a Continuous Monitoring plan which includes the continuous evaluation and improvement of our own code via Veracode, a robust vulnerability management program supported by RAPID 7, and other key security controls in accordance with NIST.
As a wholly owned United States business, JAMIS understands the need to maintain a strong commitment to the security of Federal data. The manner in which JAMIS Prime integrates with Acumatica allows for all data to be maintained onshore in the United States, never leaving JAMIS-controlled data centers.
The goal of this blog is to introduce you to our core values around Security and Compliance. While JAMIS continues to bring a revolutionary approach to the Government Contracting ERP world, we have maintained a keen focus on protecting your data and our systems. That is why we do not solely rely on external reports from our vendors and partners, but we further obtain Veracode reports, and validate them ourselves. We perform all of our coding in accordance with NIST’s Secure Software Development Framework, and use state of the art security solutions, including Veracode and RAPID 7 to ensure our environments are properly protected.
Stay tuned for our next installation where we will dig deeper into why we selected Veracode and RAPID 7 as partners, and why you should be asking your providers how they are ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and overall security of your data.
