Are vendor services available that have already been approved?

Are vendor services available to campus that have already been approved for PL1 or PL2 data?


There are several 3rd-party vendor services that are readily available to campus that have been approved for PL1 and PL2 data.  Campus units that adopt these 3rd-party services for the purpose of storing and sharing covered data can be assured that these vendors meet campus policy requirements.

Campus units that utilize these services for the handling of protected data should keep in mind that careful configuration and management of these applications is required to meet campus policy standards.
