We’re excited that Catalyze has chosen Microsoft Azure to provide a more secure and trusted platform upon which enterprise-grade applications are built and deployed.
Madison, Wis. (PRWEB) October 05, 2016
Catalyze, a leading platform for healthcare IT development teams, today announced renewed security and certifications to address changes in the healthcare industry that reduce third-party risk. The company’s compliant cloud platform will now be extended to customers using Microsoft Azure.
Within the next 12 months, an increasing number of healthcare organizations will require business associates to become certified through the Health Information Trust Alliance Common Security Framework (HITRUST CSF). The certifiable framework offers organizations a more efficient and certifiable approach to risk management and regulatory compliance. As HITRUST CSF Certification has become the industry’s gauge by which compliance and security are measured, Catalyze had already taken the industry’s lead in obtaining CSF Certification of its platform for each supported cloud platform provider.
“For our healthcare customers who run some or all business applications in Microsoft Azure, this HITRUST CSF Certification now provides a rock solid approach to managing, storing and transmitting personal health information,” said Catalyze VP of Engineering Vince Kenney.
Microsoft Corp. introduced Azure in October 2008 and since then, the enterprise-class cloud platform has risen in use by healthcare organizations. Many of those organizations use Azure as an alternative to their own data center, and run some or all business applications in Azure versus investing in on-premise servers and storage.
“Microsoft is committed to providing healthcare organizations with flexible, secure and compliant cloud technology that drives industry-wide digital transformation,” said Laura Wallace, vice president, U.S. Health and Life Sciences, Microsoft Corp. “We’re excited that Catalyze has chosen Microsoft Azure to provide a more secure and trusted platform upon which enterprise-grade applications are built and deployed.”
“Microsoft Azure is often chosen by large healthcare organizations due to its simple integration with other Microsoft products and that’s why Catalyze chose to extend HITRUST CSF Certification to the cloud platform often used by healthcare institutions,” said Raj Sundaramurthy, Catalyze Chief Product Officer. “Catalyze is proud to play a significant role in the industry by now offering a HITRUST CSF Certified solution for Microsoft Azure enterprise-side clients.”
