CAMPBELL, Calif., Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Panzura, the leader in unstructured data management in the cloud, today announced that it has been awarded certification of compliance with the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). With this announcement, Panzura customers subject to HIPAA regulations are assured that the Panzura Freedom Family of products complies with the regulations and security needs of electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) data.
"Unstructured data growth is exploding in healthcare. PACS data, 3D/4D imaging, and associated retention requirements – sometimes lifetime – are driving this," said Patrick Harr, CEO, Panzura. "The costs and complexity of managing this data are difficult enough, but with healthcare the complexity is amplified due to HIPAA requirements. Panzura goes beyond just delivering a HIPAA-compliant solution. The combination of public cloud provider data availability and durability, plus the enterprise-grade data protection technologies inherent in Panzura Freedom, gives our healthcare customers significant confidence that their data is secure."
"HIPAA has strict security requirements for data at rest and in-flight, and the strong encryption provided by Panzura keeps us in compliance," said Matt Jordan, Senior Director of IT at the American College of Radiology. "Panzura also solved our backup problems for us. Panzura Freedom is continuously archiving the data and snapshots in the cloud where it is secure and protected."
HIPAA compliance revolves around the requirement to protect the privacy and security of patient health information. Panzura does not receive, create, store, or transmit electronic Protected Health Information.
In addition to HIPAA compliance, data security is a primary concern. Panzura Freedom protects data with military-grade encryption that is FIPS 140-2 compliant. Data at rest is protected with AES-256 bit encryption, while TLS 1.2 encryption protects data in-flight. Since data is deduplicated and compressed before it is sent over the wire, it would not be intelligible even if it were intercepted. Panzura patented technology ensures that data is always immediately consistent across sites, so recovery point objectives (RPOs) are reduced to near zero.
