Annual awards program recognizes ClearDATA as outstanding health & medical technology company

AUSTIN, Texas (May 21, 2020)ClearDATA®, the leader in healthcare public cloud security, compliance and privacy, today announced that MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market, selected ClearDATA as the “Best Overall Healthcare Cybersecurity Company” in the fourth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program.

ClearDATA was selected for creating a comprehensive healthcare-exclusive cloud security, privacy and compliance platform to facilitate the healthcare industry’s burgeoning innovation on the public cloud,  while protecting sensitive health information. The company is HITRUST-certified and implements a security and privacy centered approach that enables clients to capitalize on emerging technologies including machine learning, artificial intelligence as well as state-of-the-art DevOps automation within a fortified environment. Meanwhile, the ClearDATA Healthcare Cloud Security and Compliance Platform™ mitigates risk, enforces compliance and paves the way to maximize customers’ public cloud presence for the transformative application of technology to improve patient care.

The Best Overall Healthcare Cybersecurity Company award calls out two specific components of ClearDATA’s platform. These include ClearDATA Comply™, a multi-cloud compliance software designed to automatically enforce compliance as well as detect and remediate deviations while providing near real-time reporting with clear, auditable and visual confirmation of the users’ compliance status. In addition, ClearDATA Locate® Mask enables healthcare to share and collaborate on sensitive healthcare data compliantly, using any or all of 15 HIPAA identifiers available to mask sensitive information without eroding the value of the dataset. The potential insights from broadly sharing medical data are particularly relevant under current pandemic circumstances as public health entities and researchers across the globe seek clarity and treatment options to address COVID-19.

“As the healthcare industry continues its march toward digitization, there is an evolving set of needs to shore up sensitive patient data,” said ClearDATA’s Founder and Chief Privacy and Security Officer, Chris Bowen. “Millions of healthcare consumers across the globe count on healthcare organizations of all kinds to protect their valuable information, and ClearDATA is passionate about doing exactly that in a way that emboldens the industry to practice and innovate safely. We are thrilled to receive this 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Award as affirmation of that position.”

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

“ClearDATA is uniquely qualified to support the healthcare industry’s endeavor to accelerate cloud adoption and do so with a healthcare-specific ‘breakthrough’ offering that promotes security, compliance and scalability,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Their multi-cloud platform allows healthcare organizations of all kinds, from payers to pharma and healthcare providers, to operate on one or all of the three primary public cloud platforms: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. This is a game-changer in the MedTech space and we are proud to award ClearDATA with the award for ‘Best Overall Healthcare Cybersecurity Company’ in our fourth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program.”

ClearDATA’s Medtech Breakthrough recognition comes on the heels of their receipt of Microsoft’s 2020 Health Innovation Awards for excellence in protecting health information on Microsoft Azure cloud. ClearDATA was also honored on Fast Company’s 2020 World’s Most Innovative Companies this year in the security category.
