FedRAMP Authorized Secure Hosted UC Honored for Exceptional Innovation

LOS ANGELES, CA – April, 6 2017 – collab9, America’s first FedRAMPSM Authorized Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) provider, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in print, in person, and online, named its secure hosted Unified Communications (UC) solution as a 2017 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award winner. The award honors the best, most innovative UC products and solutions released in the last twelve months.

Secure Hosted UC

Federal, state, and local government agencies leveraging collab9’s secure hosted UC can easily move their voice and collaboration systems into the cloud with a service provider that has undergone rigorous assessment and demonstrated adherence to the Federal government’s FedRAMP security requirements based on NIST 800-53 standards, saving significant time and costs for public sector and commercial organizations alike.

collab9’s secure hosted UC solution offers improved productivity, cost reduction, and operational efficiency. The solution includes voice, unified messaging with integrated voicemail and email, web and audio conferencing, instant messaging and presence, customer care applications, integration with Microsoft O365, Skype for Business, and Gmail, and E911 functionality.

“We’re proud to receive another industry award for our FedRAMP Authorized secure hosted UC solution,” said Kevin Schatzle, CEO, collab9. “Federal, state, and local agencies are increasingly adopting cloud-based services. Our Unified Communications Product of the Year award win, along with the strides we continue making in the government sector, further demonstrates collab9’s status as a trusted supplier.”

Aside from its federal government specialization as America’s first FedRAMP Authorized UCaaS provider, collab9 was awarded a 10-year NASPO ValuePoint Cloud Solutions contract through the State of Utah last year. This enables collab9, and its comprehensive distribution channel of telecom service providers, Value Added Resellers (VARs), and prime contractors, to sell its cloud service to U.S. state and local governments (including individual departments, agencies, institutions), higher education, and political subdivisions (i.e. colleges, school districts, counties, cities, etc.).

“It gives me great pleasure to honor collab9 as a 2017 recipient of TMC’s Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for their innovative FedRAMP Authorized UC product,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by collab9 in their groundbreaking work surrounding secure hosted UC.”

Winners of the 2017 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award were announced online and will be highlighted in INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
