Pasadena, Calif. (PRWEB) July 14, 2014
MTS Healthcare, a leading healthcare cloud computing company, announces that it has achieved Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 standards compliance. The certification was awarded after a thorough assessment by auditors from KirkpatrickPrice, and demonstrates MTS Healthcare’s commitment to high-level security controls and operational excellence.
MTS Healthcare is one of the only organizations in the healthcare industry to have the entire organization certified, rather than just their data centers. This means their training, interface development, technical support and entire cloud service is certified to have the highest security protocols and operational management at all levels of the company.
“With the achievement of the SSAE16 certification, MTS Healthcare can guarantee the best practices and controls are in place to protect our customer’s data,” said MTS Healthcare CEO James Deck. “For our customers, it means knowing we maintain the highest levels of security and controls, giving them invaluable peace of mind.”
Audits were conducted in accordance to standards set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to test the operating effectiveness of controls considered necessary to provide assurance of data security. The review included interviews with relevant personnel to corroborate control placement and activity, an assessment of relevant MTS documentation and direct observation of control placement and activity.
Several layers of controls are in place to ensure maximum security and operational effectiveness at MTS Healthcare. All management duties are segregated and maintain guides consistent with security practices. Controls are in place to reduce the risk of theft, fraud and misuse of facilities. They also implement controls to protect assets from environmental risks and limit physical access to the computer equipment, system infrastructure and storage media to authorized personnel. In addition, all MTS employees are trained in security awareness including HIPPA compliance basics and HIPPA as it relates to MTS company policies and procedures.
SSAE16 certification will help MTS build trust with its customers, and ensure that their information is protected. This report ensures that all user organizations have access to the same information for their own auditing purposes, reducing their costs.
