ClearDATA achieves HITRUST certification


ClearDATA Networks, a healthcare cloud data computing platform and service provider, has successfully achieved Common Security Framework (CSF) Certified status from the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST).

This independent, third-party certification assures healthcare organizations that ClearDATA’s cloud computing, backup, disaster-recovery and professional services meet the highest standards for managing security risks and protecting health information.

Chris Bowen, chief privacy officer and a founder of ClearDATA, said that CSF certification underscores ClearDATA’s commitment to meet and exceed the global healthcare industry’s stringent data privacy and security regulations—including HIPAA, and to provide the highest level of protection against data breaches and malicious cybercrime.

“An unrelenting focus on data security including HIPAA compliance has always been the cornerstone of our business. We are pleased to formally demonstrate the depth and breadth of our compliance and best practices with this certification,” said Bowen.

“This designation will give our clients even more confidence in our ability to manage protected health information in an IT infrastructure that aligns with the latest standards and regulations.”

Ken Vander Wal, chief compliance officer of HITRUST, said that gaining CSF certification further validates that ClearDATA has made protecting its clients’ sensitive healthcare information a top priority.

“This commitment to information security is essential in an industry where evolving technologies for transmitting and hosting data are prevalent and the costs associated with a data breach can be devastating. We applaud ClearDATA’s management for ensuring that its cloud-computing platform and services meet the CSF certification requirements,” he said.
