ClearDATA®, the leader in healthcare public cloud security, compliance and privacy, today expanded their flagship ClearDATA Comply™ Software as a Service (SaaS) compliance management solution to include Amazon Web Services (AWS) Fargate. With the addition of this service to Comply, ClearDATA unites both infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) container options in a compliant manner. The ClearDATA solution aims to lower the barrier of adoption for containers and serverless technology in healthcare – accelerating application development, sharing resources and versioned runtime environments.
By implementing Comply automated safeguards on top of a container infrastructure that may contain PHI or PII, AWS Fargate is transformed into a HIPAA-compliant service. This feature, an addition to over 70 services already addressed by ClearDATA Comply, helps mitigate risk of misconfigurations for containers to support healthcare application management with real-time, automated compliance monitoring, enforcement and remediation.
“More than ever, Healthcare needs to innovate faster via accelerated technology adoption. AWS Fargate makes it easy to focus on building applications. The latest extension of ClearDATA Comply to support AWS Fargate empowers healthcare organizations to take advantage of container architectures while still protecting sensitive patient data,” said Suhas Kelkar, Chief Product Officer at ClearDATA. “ClearDATA is dedicated to innovating and transforming security and compliance solutions to broaden healthcare’s access to the public cloud.”
Using ClearDATA Comply to safeguard AWS Fargate provides key benefits to healthcare organizations in the AWS cloud including:
- Adopt serverless technology to further virtual care based on traffic patterns with no system administration overhead.
- Support traffic surges such as open enrollment with the ability to scale up and down based on demand.
- Scale disease research and access to data across different organizations without added costs such as genome data that requires faster searches. Further, access to Real World Evidence (RWE) and data lakes that require security protocols to keep sensitive data safe.
- Protect patient data, keeping best practices in healthcare security, compliance and privacy at the core of healthcare innovation on the cloud.
