Citrix ShareFile Helps Clients Tackle Tougher HIPAA Compliance Rules With New Cloud For Healthcare

Citrix today announced the Citrix ShareFile Cloud for Healthcare, a dedicated virtual private cloud for protected health information. Under the Omnibus Final Rule (Omnibus Rule) update to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), with a compliance deadline of Sept. 23, 2013, businesses that process or store protected health information (PHI) are subject to enhanced compliance regulations. In response, Citrix has updated its architecture to provide enhanced segregation and security for Citrix ShareFile® customers who need to safeguard PHI.

“Healthcare organizations need solutions in place that will help them protect confidential information from unintentional exposure and remain in compliance with the latest rules,” said Maribel Lopez, Founder, Lopez Research. “Healthcare needs solutions like dedicated virtual private clouds for protected health information.”

Support for Omnibus Rule

A majority of business associates reported being somewhat or completely unaware of their new responsibilities under the Omnibus Rule, according to a survey 1 conducted by Coalfire, an independent information technology Governance, Risk and Compliance (IT GRC) firm, released in September. Fewer than half of business associates reported they are compliant with the Omnibus Rule.

Assessed to protect data in technical compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule by information security firm Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, Inc., the ShareFile Cloud for Healthcare is unique in that it segments out healthcare customer data into a separate secure enclave to store or process PHI. Typically, organizations migrate PHI from on-premise storage to their own private cloud. The new ShareFile Cloud for Healthcare will help organizations reduce costs and help support their compliance with HIPAA requirements.

Organizations Entrust Their Protected Health Information to ShareFile

“I can't risk sending files through a consumer cloud service. I need to have a rock-solid platform that supports HIPAA compliance,” said Matthew Sohn, Founder & CEO, Mission Benefits. “So for us, the ShareFile Cloud for Healthcare is the next big thing – giving us a quick and secure way to access, share and collaborate with clients, carriers and partners everywhere.”
