Pharmaceutical Strategies Group (PSG) Selects Armor Private Cloud for
Security and Compliance
Healthcare technology provider relies on solution for flexibility, scalability and performance
RICHARDSON, Texas – January 24, 2017 – Organizations with complex security and compliance needs are increasingly turning to outside partners to reinforce this critical aspect of their business so they can focus on customer service and growth. To that end, Pharmaceutical Strategies Group (PSG), a healthcare technology and consulting firm, selected Armor, a leading private vitual cloud provider offering best-in-class security and service, to host and protect client data across its enterprise.
“Maintaining our clients’ trust, particularly around the security of their data, is our utmost priority, and we take it very seriously,” said Dave Borden, CEO, PSG. “As the threat landscape continues to intensify, particularly in healthcare, we need a partner that has the skills and solutions to address security and compliance challenges in a scalable manner as we continue to grow. With Armor, we have aligned with proven experts that are as committed as we are to helping our clients succeed – in this case by successfully navigating and mitigating security risks while providing the infrastructure and support to deliver superior insights and analytics.”
Armor Complete was selected by PSG for its HIPAA-compliant approach to secure private cloud hosting. The solution manages healthcare compliance and security controls to safeguard ePHI (electronic protected health information) among other sensitive data. Features include two-factor authentication, log management, persistent data encryption, vulnerability scanning and a dedicated next-generation firewall.
“PSG serves a critical role in the healthcare continuum and Armor is the ideal partner to support their mission without impeding their ability to manage vast amounts of sensitive data,” said Jared Day, president, Armor. “This is no small feat. Organizations that serve the healthcare industry are frequently targeted by cyber criminals and must take extra care to secure data and meet increasingly strict compliance standards. Backed by Armor, we’re confident that PSG can continue to exceed their clients’ expectations.”
