Healthcare Compliance for the Google Cloud Platform
Achieve Innovation in Healthcare
The healthcare world is experiencing powerful new advances every day. Whether you’re engaged in medical research, enhancing patient outcomes or bringing new healthcare offerings to market, you are intent on pushing boundaries.
And that’s why we joined forces with Google – together, we provide a platform for innovation with compliance at its core. Google brings breakthrough cloud technology that builds on its pioneering reputation. We at ClearDATA are a healthcare-exclusive provider of security and compliance solutions that safeguard sensitive data and critical applications while enabling you to scale your healthcare IT infrastructure.
Additionally, our close collaboration with the Google Product Team lets us bring you the latest services in a compliant manner as they become available. With our healthcare focus, we can advise the Google Product Team on specific compliance nuances that the healthcare industry requires. For example, our lead engineer discovered and shared with Google how to configure one of their applications, Forseti, in a severless, secure way. Learn more about that collaboration here.
Innovate Confidently with Automated Safeguards
Our expertise is centered around keeping your environment safe and secure in the cloud throughout the entire lifecycle of your application. We bring the highest levels of compliance to the myriad of technologies available in the Google Cloud. We safeguard your environment through automation and our healthcare experienced 24/7 support staff that provides custom work across BAA covered services so that you can leverage the benefits of the cloud in a safe and secure manner.
You can rest assured that your assets have an increased level of protection with Automated Safeguards. We eliminate the time it takes to manually build settings and apply compliance regulations, while also reducing the risk of exposing data through human error. We configure your environment in a way that ensures your GCP assets are compliant by enabling logging and creating log backups that are securely stored in a ClearDATA controlled storage location. Additionally, we have safeguards in place for the following Google technologies:
Analyze your data and know it’s safe and secure with enforced logging and removal of public access automatically enabled
Deploy from ClearDATA Hardened Images, based on CIS benchmarks, with a suite of Automated Safeguards
Scale quickly and securely with integrated container vulnerability scanning and hardening based on CIS benchmarks
Send and receive messages in a secure manner with controls automatically configured to remove public access for and all authenticated users from IAM policy
Provision a secure database with backups, required SSL connections and removal of public access, all automatically enabled
Protect cloud hosted PHI from accidental exposure, breaches, and in compliance with automated safeguards by enforcing versioning, the removal of public access, and an enhanced level of logging
Understand the State of Your Compliance with the Compliance Dashboard
Instantly understand your compliance posture with our Compliance Dashboard. We interpret regulations from HIPAA, GDPR, and GxP, among others, and map those regulations to things like virus scan status, log monitoring, and log backup status. Our Compliance Dashboard lets you view your compliance status in a moment in time as well as over a period of time with trend reports which can serve as auditable proof for your customers, internal stakeholders, or even an auditor.
Rather than manage numerous Business Associate Agreements (BAA), ClearDATA provides a comprehensive BAA and works with you to meet your needs. Paired with our HITRUST 9.1-certified processes and controls, you can focus on your applications while knowing that the underlying operating system and infrastructure is installed, configured, and maintained in a secure and compliant manner.
