Honorlock Achieves TX-RAMP Level 2 Certification for Secure Data Handling for Online Exam Proctoring

Certification Affirms Honorlock Commitment to Academic Integrity While Protecting Data

BOCA RATON, Fla. (March 26, 2024)Honorlock, an online proctoring company for higher education and professional development, has successfully achieved Level 2 certification in the Texas Risk and Authorization Management Program (TX-RAMP).

As part of the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR), TX-RAMP addresses the security of commercial cloud computing products and services that process data for Texas state agencies, including higher education. It is required for cloud-based software that processes, stores, or transmits data that is considered confidential.

With TX-RAMP certification, Honorlock has met the strict requirements needed to provide Texas educational and corporate institutions with access to safe and secure online proctoring for remote testing that also meets the rigorous security standards mandated by the state.

“Honorlock has access to a minimum amount of test-taker data, but we understand that protecting any and all data is critically important,” said Michael Hemlepp, CEO at Honorlock. “This certification reassures Texas state agencies and higher education institutions that Honorlock can be used and meets the outlined data management, security, and data governance standards. It also gives students peace of mind that any data shared during online exams proctored by Honorlock will remain secure and confidential.”

TX-RAMP Level 2 Certification is the higher of two designated levels of compliance with Texas-state cybersecurity standards for cloud technologies that process, store or transmit data that is deemed confidential and a source of moderate or high-impact information.
