Privacy and security are top concerns at ElephantDrive and we have shaped our solution according the well-established best practices in the security world. For an overview of the principles and practices applied, please visit our FAQ on security design here: Data Security and Compliance Topic.
Our internal reviews meet the compliance standards outlined in HIPAA and 3rd party certification of these hurdles is forthcoming. We've used the publicly available documentation and the work done by our storage partners as Amazon Web Services (AWS) as key guidelines for evaluation. For a review of the recommended techniques for deploying HIPAA compliant applications, please visit the AWS whitepaper on HIPAA. We hope this information helps you make an informed decision and we hope we get the opportunity to provide you with compliant cloud storage services.
It is important to keep in mind that no system, by itself, can ensure HIPAA compliance. The organization using the system must adhere to the standards and regulations detailed in HIPAA in order to maintain compliance.
