SEATTLE, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TASER International (NASDAQ: TASR), a global leader in body-worn cameras and evidence management for law enforcement, today announced that the EVIDENCE.com security team will host a webinar on tips for choosing a cloud service provider you can trust.
One topic that is important to our customers, and will be covered in the webinar, is the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) requirements. EVIDENCE.com runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and they have provided customers with an approach to run CJIS-compliant applications on the AWS Cloud since 2013. The AWS CJIS Workbook provides partners and customer agencies a systematic approach to documenting their implementation of CJIS security requirements for review and authorization.
There are currently more than 3,700 police agencies in the U.S. who trust TASER's cloud-based digital evidence management platform, EVIDENCE.com to securely store and manage the digital evidence from their body cameras, dash cameras, phones and other digital devices.
"All of our digital evidence requires secure and efficient download, storage, and retrieval that meet rigorous evidence standards for our industry," said Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank. "To ensure the integrity of the chain of custody, we needed a technology partner that was committed to providing the most secure, scalable, and cost-effective solution for managing all types of digital evidence, while adhering to strict regulatory obligations. That is why we choose EVIDENCE.com's digital evidence management system to implement a secure end-to-end solution for our department," concluded Chief Burbank.
"We understand the importance of meeting the unique security requirements of our law enforcement customers, which is why EVIDENCE.com has always complied with the FBI's CJIS Security Policy," says Marcus Womack, General Manager of EVIDENCE.com. "Our work with AWS includes a shared commitment to ensuring a secure, CJIS-capable infrastructure for supporting law enforcement's regulatory obligations."
TASER protects EVIDENCE.com with a robust and comprehensive security program far beyond the capabilities of competing solutions or on-premise solutions.
