AvePoint, the prominent platform for optimising SaaS operations and secure collaboration, has announced the addition of three new products to its FedRAMP (moderate) authorisation. This endorsement indicates that AvePoint's SaaS solutions have undergone rigorous security controls testing and are confirmed for use in all federal agencies.

The new products added to AvePoint's FedRAMP authorisation include AvePoint tyGraph, which offers advanced workforce analytics on employee engagement and assists in the adoption and ROI of Microsoft 365. MaivenPoint Examena, a platform that facilitates safe, AI-enabled examinations, and MaivenPoint Curricula, developed to enhance the modern learning experience for ongoing education, were also added.

AvePoint also achieved compliance with HITRUST CSF v11.0.1, validating its commitment to maintaining robust security and privacy standards, in particular for entities in regulated industries like federal agencies and global healthcare providers.
