With a HITRUST CSF-Certification, Project Hosts’ A6 Security Envelope provides an ideal Azure environment for Healthcare Providers and ISVs in need of a fully attested cloud platform,” said Hector Rodriguez, Director, Worldwide Healthcare at Microsoft Corp.

Project Hosts, a leader in Security Compliant Clouds, today announced that its A6 Security Envelope has earned Certified status for information security by the Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance. With the HITRUST CSF Certified Status, Project Hosts’ A6 Security Envelope for Microsoft Azure meets key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive private healthcare information. Applications and workloads deployed into Project Hosts’ A6 Security Envelope inherit all of the HIPAA and HITRUST security controls implemented in the environment at the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) level.

“By gaining the HITRUST Alliance’s CSF-Certification for our A6 Security Envelope, Healthcare providers and ISVs can deploy applications and workloads into Microsoft Azure knowing they will be compliant with HITRUST security standards,” said Erez Adivan-Antonir, Vice President Business Development for Project Hosts, Inc. “Our A6 Security Envelope can save Healthcare providers and ISVs upwards of six months, and hundreds of thousands of dollars implementing, documenting and gaining their HITRUST compliance.”

HITRUST CSF-Certification is the healthcare industry’s most widely recognized security accreditation. HITRUST incorporates a wide range of healthcare specific security, privacy and regulatory requirements from existing regulations such as HIPAA/HITECH, PCI, ISO 27001 and MARS-E as well as industry best practices.

“With a HITRUST CSF-Certification, Project Hosts’ A6 Security Envelope provides an ideal Azure environment for Healthcare Providers and ISVs in need of a fully attested cloud platform,” said Hector Rodriguez, Director, Worldwide Healthcare at Microsoft Corp. “Project Hosts extends HITRUST CSF-certification to the SaaS-level so that organizations can secure ePHI and implement cloud solutions without incurring the effort and expense typically required to design, implement, document and audit the application-level security controls required for full regulatory compliance.”

By leveraging Project Hosts’ A6 Security Envelope, ISVs can allocate more resources to develop innovative software applications that improve the customer experience and maximize operational efficiencies. ISVs can rely on Project Hosts to gain HIPAA/HITRUST compliance for their application, while also gaining access to Azure experts who can architect, build, scale and provide advanced DRaaS, backup and archiving for their SaaS solutions.
