Enable CJIS Compliance in the Cloud with End-to-End Encryption
The cloud enables on-demand access to CJI for state and local governments, for collaboration that helps agencies maintain public safety, but without proper security and controls, compliance risks are significant. Cloud environments expose criminal history record information (CHRI) and other CJI to access by cloud vendor personnel and unauthorized third parties, risking CJIS violations that can result in loss of access to crucial law enforcement services like the National Criminal Information Center (NCIC) and National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NCICS).
Virtru helps state and local governments unlock the power of CJI and other mission-critical data to ensure public safety. Virtru’s client-side, end-to-end encryption and granular access controls help you:
- Protect CJI stored in cloud email and file systems like Gmail, Google Drive, and Outlook from access by unauthorized users.
- Share protected email and encrypted files containing incident histories and other CJI internally and with external agencies and other mission partners.
- Unlock digital workflows to support remote government workers and distributed agency teams.
- Boost user adoption with easy-to-use protections, seamless recipient access, and a quick installation process that gets users up and running in minutes.
“By enabling full compliance for our law enforcement agency, Virtru gave us a path toward a complete cloud migration.”
– Susan Lyon, Google Cloud Team Manager, State of Maryland
Unlock CJIS Compliant Digital Workflows
Privacy and Compliance
End-to-end encryption prevents unauthorized access to email and files containing CJI to meet CJIS compliance requirements and maintain the privacy of citizens’ PII.
As CJIS is shared across cloud environments, Virtru keeps it secure with persistent protection and lets you govern access throughout the data lifecycle.
Ease of Use
Virtru’s seamless user experience ensures broad adoption. End-to-end encryption and access controls are embedded where users, admins and agency partners already work.
Keep CJI Protected and Under Your Control,
Everywhere It’s Shared
Easy End-to-End Encryption for Compliant Cloud Workflows
Without end-to-end encryption, use of cloud services requires CJIS-specific background screening and training for cloud vendor personnel and specialized SLAs and/or contractual clauses that compound costs and delay deployments.
Virtru’s end-to-end encryption streamlines CJIS compliance in the cloud by preventing vendor personnel from accessing CJI. Transparent key exchanges avoid complexities of other end-to-end encryption approaches like PGP and S/MIME for enhanced adoption and usage
Power Internal and External Agency Collaboration
Provide law enforcement agency employees and administrators easy-to-use data protection, embedded in existing applications. Complement user protections with DLP rules that automatically enforce encryption and control.
Enable seamless access for recipients and collaborators at external agencies and departments, without requiring new accounts, passwords, or software, for digital sharing workflows that support rapid delivery of services that support public safety.
Maintain Control and Persistent Visibility
Enable secure sharing across agencies with attribute-based access controls (ABAC) for CJI that enable instant access revocation, expiration, disable forwarding, and document watermarking capabilities.
Audit who has accessed CJI, when, where, and for how long. Export event logs for analysis, or integrate with your SIEM for advanced threat analysis.
