The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) are a set of U.S. government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the U.S. Munitions List (USML) and related technical data.
ITAR requires that items listed on the USML only be shared with U.S. persons (EAR Part 772 and ITAR 120.15) unless there are any special authorizations or exemptions. Compliance with ITAR is focused on ensuring that technical data is not inadvertently distributed to foreign persons or foreign nations.
Sharetru helps government contractors and subcontractors meet ITAR requirements not only by providing a compliant infrastructure and platform, but also by providing the right software controls to enhance compliance.
No formal process exists to become ITAR-certified, but companies exporting items on the USML must still understand and comply with this after becoming ITAR registered. At Sharetru, all of our clients’ data resides in the U.S. and all of our employees are U.S. citizens. This helps your organization stay ITAR-compliant while safeguarding your sensitive information.
Our platform enables you to block IP addresses from any country outside the U.S. with our country access controls, as well as limit folder access to only U.S. citizens for folders that hold ITAR-related data. You can also grant access exclusively to selected IP address ranges, keeping people who shouldn’t have access out of the system.
We maintain 100% of our ITAR-enabled cloud services in a U.S. data center staffed only by U.S. citizens, and our disaster recovery facility is far away and follows the same standards. If you’re looking for an ITAR-compliant file-sharing solution, you can be assured any user information that’s on the USML is always managed and maintained by U.S. citizens at all times, making Sharetru your trusted ally in data security.
Staying compliant with ITAR provides a defense for your organization against penalties, legal complications, and lost contracts. Having your own ITAR registration may also give your company a competitive advantage if you maintain the security requirements.
The penalties levied on organizations that violate ITAR are considerable. Civil and criminal violations can each result in fines of more than $1 million in addition to debarment for civil and disbarment for criminal judgments. Prison terms of up to 20 years may also result from criminal liability.
With Sharetru, you can store and transfer data quickly, easily, and safely within ITAR requirements.
You don’t have to take our word for it. We’ve been leading the way in secure online file sharing since it all began, and we’d love to show you how we do it. Schedule your demo today.
