Our customers' success is our success – and it all comes down to security. As a security provider in the Software as a Service (SaaS) market, we’re thrilled to announce that DoControl has achieved Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance. We are excited to partner with organizations under HIPAA to secure business-critical applications and data, upholding their end of the shared responsibility model in the cloud
Organizations under HIPAA aim to optimize healthcare outcomes; be it improved patient experiences, faster and more accurate medical diagnoses, or reduced fraudulent health insurance claims. IT and Security teams can fully operationalize DoControl’s Security Workflows to protect sensitive PHI-related data, as well as detect and respond to high-risk activity within their SaaS environments. The standard SaaS ecosystem consists of many different disparate applications, and the approach to securing this environment is often in a decentralized manner. DoControl is proud to provide a single platform offering to secure modern businesses sensitive applications and data in a simple way.
We here at DoControl are committed to upholding the highest standards of privacy and security for our customers so they can drive their business forward without compromising security.
HIPAA requires the adoption of national standards for appropriate and secure handling of electronic health data. This regulation requires a specific set of standards in the governing of the security, privacy, and integrity of sensitive health care files and data, commonly known as Protected Health Information (PHI). PHI is defined as any healthcare-related data that can be used to identify a patient. Covered entities and business associates, including health insurance companies, company health plans, and government programs that pay for healthcare, and any vendor that provides healthcare services to clients that come into contact with PHI must maintain compliance with HIPAA.
Avoiding non-compliance is critical, otherwise organizations face steep financial penalties. HIPAA affects organizations of all shapes and sizes as well; even small HIPAA violations can cost businesses between $100 and $50,000 for each violation. The number of HIPAA-related breaches and violations continue to rise, and the amount of data that is being generated also only increases over time, which makes compliance an ongoing challenge for most businesses. Modern businesses need to proceed with extreme caution and care to ensure they are not making avoidable mistakes.
Systems and Organization Controls, or SOC2, was created by the AICPA over ten years ago. This certification was initially designed to give auditors practical guidance in evaluating the operating effectiveness of an organization’s security protocols. The SOC 2 security framework details how organizations should handle customer data that’s stored in the cloud. The AICPA designed SOC 2 to establish trust between service providers and their customers.
In addition to SOC2, DoControl is also compliant with ISO27001, as well as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) ready.
Be it legal depositions, customer care data, telehealth information, and any other type of data that becomes generated within the SaaS estate, our customers can feel confident knowing that their sensitive data has been classified, and the appropriate preventative measures and detective mechanisms are in place to secure sensitive PHI information.
