PORTLAND, OR (October 11, 2016) – Janrain®, the leading company who created the Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) category, today announced that A-LIGN, an independent auditing firm, has provided an attestation that Janrain complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rules and Regulations and Health Information Technology For Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) requirements.
HIPAA established important national standards for the privacy and security of protected health information, and HITECH established breach notification requirements to provide greater transparency for individuals whose information may be at risk. HIPAA / HITECH defines policies, procedures and processes that are required for organizations–such as healthcare and pharmaceutical companies–that store, process or handle electronic protected health information (PHI)
“We partnered with A-LIGN to validate the administrative, physical and technical safeguards we have implemented to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and security of PHI we may host for some clients,” said Janrain General Counsel and VP of Privacy, Lewis Barr. “This assessment is another marker along the path we have followed to build trust with our clients and among the chief reasons why so many global brands trust Janrain.
To protect against both deliberate attacks on and inadvertent exposure of its customer data, Janrain is committed to maintaining the highest level of security and privacy controls while operating with the highest level of transparency to its clients, hence, Janrain undergoes rigorous audits. In the last six months, Janrain has been successfully audited for SOC 2 Type 2 compliance for the Security, Availability and Confidentiality Trust Principles, ISO 27001:2013, and now HIPAA/HITECH Security Rule compliance.
