The company is one of 62 in the world to achieve this designation and the only healthcare-specific provider. ClearDATA’s AWS MSSP Level 1 Competency ensures customers a trusted, verified, quality managed security services cloud partner.

AUSTIN, TexasMay 9, 2024 — ClearDATA®, healthcare’s only comprehensive provider of cloud, compliance, and security services and software, today announced it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Level 1 Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) Competency status, solidifying its position among a select group of global organizations meeting AWS quality standards for managed security services.

ClearDATA is only one of 62 companies around the world and the only healthcare-specific provider to attain this designation, showcasing its expertise in delivering advanced security solutions for AWS environments. Achieving the AWS Level 1 MSSP Competency differentiates ClearDATA as an MSSP and AWS Partner with essential 24/7 managed cloud security skillsets to earn the distinction. This milestone highlights the company’s commitment to ensuring the security, identification, and protection of sensitive healthcare data in the cloud.

“This achievement cements our position as the trusted leader in cloud security within the healthcare industry,” said Rick Froehlich, CEO of ClearDATA. “Leading providers, payers, biopharma, and healthcare solutions choose ClearDATA as the AWS cloud partner they rely on to meet their high compliance and security standards. This competency demonstrates why we’re known for protecting PHI and sensitive healthcare data while ensuring continuous compliance so that healthcare organizations can operate and innovate more seamlessly in the cloud.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

In order to be recognized as a partner, ClearDATA needed to meet rigorous technical and operational requirements set by AWS, including:

  • Vulnerability management;
  • Monitoring for AWS service configurations;
  • Managed detection and response (MDR); and
  • Managed web application firewall (WAF) services.

The Level 1 MSSP Competency also validates partners like ClearDATA with expertise beyond the Level 1 MSS baseline in specialization categories including: Modern compute, identity behavior monitoring, managed application security testing, data privacy event management, digital forensics and incident response, and business continuity and ransomware readiness.

In addition to achieving this milestone, ClearDATA will be hosting AWS Healthcare Immersion Days in six cities this May and June, featuring sessions on quantifying compliance debt to protect PHI and Gen AI on AWS. These events, conducted in collaboration with AWS, Ingram Micro, and Experis Health Solutions, aim to educate attendees on leveraging AWS for healthcare innovation and compliance. The first event will kick off in New York City on May 16.
