Gladinet Enables HIPAA and FINRA Compliant Cloud Storage
Gladinet continues to improve its on-premise enterprise file sync and share platform for FINRA and HIPAA compliance with security and usability enhancements. Gladinet's strategy for compliance focuses on enablement. Organizations and service providers that have FINRA or HIPAA compliance can maintain these certifications by installing Gladinet's EFSS platform on-premise to leverage their existing infrastructure as HIPAA or FINRA compliant cloud storage. The platform includes security features like encryption, auditing, reporting, secure connections based on SSL, 2-factor authentication as well as a variety of mobile device security features which further reinforce compliance.
FINRA licenses individuals and admits firms, writes rules to govern their behavior, examines them for regulatory compliance, and is sanctioned by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to discipline registered representatives and member firms that fail to comply with federal securities laws and FINRA's rules and regulations.
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed. This includes covered entities (CE), anyone who provides treatment, payment and operations in healthcare, and business associates (BA), anyone with access to patient information and provides support in treatment, payment or operations. Subcontractors, or business associates of business associates, must also be in compliance.
"We are pleased to see more and more customers leveraging our platform when HIPAA or FINRA compliance is a top priority. These customers appreciate the complete control of their data that we provide. So, rather than depend on a service provider to maintain compliance and deal with the legalities of managing the division of risk, our platform allows them complete control over all compliance factors," said Jerry Huang, Gladinet's CEO.
