Evo Security Confirmed as Having Implemented an Effective HIPAA Compliancy Program

Austin, TX-based Evo Security, Inc has been confirmed as having implemented an effective HIPAA compliance program and having met all appropriate provisions of the HIPAA Rules.

Evo Security is a Zero-Trust Identity and Access Management SaaS company that helps Managed Service Providers protect themselves and their customers from cyber threats, through a purpose-built Multi-factor Authentication (MFA), Single Sign-on (SSO), and Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution.

All vendors that come into contact with Protected Health Information (PHI) are required to comply with the HIPAA Rules and implement safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI. As a provider of security solutions to MSPs, MSSPs, and IT companies with healthcare clients, Evo Security must ensure that its solutions, policies, and procedures are compliant with the HIPAA Rules.

To ensure the company was fully compliant with all requirements of the HIPAA Rules, Evo Security partnered with Compliancy Group and followed its proven HIPAA compliance methodology. Evo Security completed Compliancy Group’s six stage implementation program, tracking its progress using Compliancy Group’s compliance tracking software solution – The Guard.

After following that process and conducting an organization-wide risk analysis and remediating risks, the company was assessed for compliance with the necessary regulatory standards of the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, HIPAA Omnibus Rule, and the HITECH Act.

Compliancy Group’s HIPAA compliance subject matter experts confirmed that Evo Security was in compliance with the HIPAA Rules, and the company’s good faith effort toward HIPAA compliance was recognized by awarding Evo Security the HIPAA Seal of Compliance.

With HIPAA violation fine enforcement up 400% in recent years and series of high-profile breaches and multi-million-dollar settlements that drew national attention, the importance of HIPAA compliance for both IT service providers and their healthcare IT clients has never been more urgent,” said Evo Security. “HIPAA matters to Evo Security because it follows a strong code of ethics that it believes in and follows.”
