Zoom for Government vs. commercial Zoom
In the United States, we offer a separate platform, called Zoom for Government (ZfG), that is designed to conform with the federal government’s security requirements. While originally created for federal agencies, ZfG is also available to U.S. state and local government customers as well as other approved businesses and organizations.
Zoom for Government has:
- Been authorized at the FedRAMP Moderate Level
- Received Provisional Authorization (PA) from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for the Department of Defense (DoD) at Impact Level 4 (IL4)
- Obtained an Authorization to Operate (ATO) from the Department of the Air Force for conducting IL4 CUI-based video meetings and phone calls
- Achieved a StateRAMP Moderate authorization
The platform’s controls also support the following compliance requirements:
Zoom for Government delivers an intuitive and secure experience similar to commercial Zoom. Both versions of the platform are scalable and flexible, giving today’s public sector organizations what they need to achieve their goals while still helping to protect important information.
