US Healthcare Provider Improves Data Security in the Cloud

Overview

An independent healthcare technology company operates the largest financial and administrative information exchange in the United States. This company collaborates with payers and providers to apply innovative data, as well as analytics solutions and services, to help improve clinical decision-making, simplify billing, collection, and payment processes—and enable a better patient experience. The company relies on Trend Micro to help protect sensitive healthcare information and ensure compliance.

Challenges

The company’s innovative technology team uses large volumes of sensitive data in an AWS environment. The team needed to enforce specific security policies, as well as governance and compliance, with stringent healthcare regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The team also needed to simplify configuration and deployment of internal security rules, such as encryption. This enables them to adopt additional cloud capabilities while maintaining compliance.

"After researching the available options, the team chose Trend Micro Cloud One - Conformity to strengthen their security portfolio in the cloud, enhance visibility and control over their sensitive assets, and automate compliance with regulations."
