NEW HAVEN, Conn., March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Square 9® Softworks, developers of award-winning enterprise content management (ECM) and digital transformation solutions, is proud to announce that its GlobalSearch C2 Cloud platform has achieved Service Organization Control (SOC) 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2 and HIPAA compliance certification.
The SOC 1 and 2 standards, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), are a widely recognized attestation certifying that Square 9's information security policies and procedures for handling data meet stringent principles for storage, security, availability and confidentiality.
"Square 9 is committed to providing industry leading, cloud enabled solutions for our GlobalSearch C2 customers. With SOC 1 and 2 certification, our resellers and end users can rest assured that the proper controls and audit measures are in place to make certain their important records and content remain secure and available" said Michael Frattini, Senior Vice President of Operations and Corporate Compliance Officer at Square 9.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Security Rule of 2003, commonly referred to as HIPAA addresses the security of electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI). The addition of HIPAA certification extends Square 9's commitment of security availability and confidentiality to those customers that store any ePHI within GlobalSearch C2. This enables Square 9 to execute Business Associate Agreements with all covered entities, giving them the peace of mind that their information will be handled and secured according to confidentiality standards.
"As more and more healthcare organizations move their records management strategy to the cloud, it is important that their service provider can guarantee their records will not be disclosed except where meaningful use applies. Achieving HIPAA certification assures our customers and resellers that they can rely on Square 9 to have the requisite physical and technical safeguards needed to ensure ePHI privacy and security," explained Erin Keller, Director of Operations and Square 9's HIPAA Compliance Officer.
The addition of SOC and HIPAA certifications add to a growing list of recent accolades the Square 9 product suite has achieved. Recently, Keypoint Intelligence and Buyers Laboratory (BLI) recognized GlobalSearch 5.0 with its highest Platinum rating and awarded it their 2020 Outstanding Achievement Award for Outstanding Document Management Solutions. Square 9 was also named Best ECM/Document Management Software Provider at the Cannata Report's 34th annual awards & charities dinner.
