Boomi has announced the completion of its independent assessment for cloud security controls under the Government's IRAP framework.

The company has revealed that the Boomi AtomSphere Platform has been independently assessed for cloud security against the Australian Government's Information Security Manual (ISM) PROTECTED controls. 

The assessment was conducted within the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) – a common framework recognised by Australian Government agencies to assess a vendor's security posture. Boomi says this helps continue the company's momentum in the government market. 

"Accelerating the coordination of Australia's public sector puts an emphasis on prioritising data-driven decision-making and defining data as a shared national asset," says Nathan Gower, Director, Australia and New Zealand at Boomi.

"Having the necessary standards for data protection and cybersecurity in place, across agencies and jurisdictions, is important in today's cloud world, and completing our IRAP assessment is a validation that our technology is available to Australia's public sector and can safely operate at a protected level within their cloud environments." 

Assessment at PROTECTED level recognises Boomi to provide comprehensive security controls in system design and operational effectiveness across its low-code integration platform as a service (iPaaS), which includes Master Data Hub, B2B/EDI Management, API Management, and workflow management. 

Boomi's security posture for storing, processing, and communicating information allows government agencies to purchase the Boomi AtomSphere Platform without needing to complete their own independent assessments.

Further, it supports commercial outreach, with several Australian enterprises recognising IRAP as the gold standard for cloud security assessment.

Boomi says it is also constantly expanding, and the company recently set the industry record for largest customer base among integration platform vendors, added world-class leaders, and continues to expand its global footprint.

It has been positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (EiPaaS) for eight consecutive years and has a growing user community of over 100,000 members.

Further to this, the company has a worldwide network of approximately 800 partners, including Accenture, Deloitte, SAP, and Snowflake; and partners with the largest hyperscaler cloud service providers, including Amazon Web Services, Google and Microsoft, among others.

Earlier this month, Edith Cowan University (ECU) began using the Boomi AtomSphere Platform to create a digital framework that promotes data access and sharing throughout the university.

The company also expanded its global partner programme earlier this year, providing partners with more opportunities and experiences.
