AUSTIN, TX (July 23, 2018) —  ClearDATA™, a leading security and compliance expert in the healthcare cloud, has joined forces with Google Cloud to accelerate healthcare innovation. The new partnership hosted on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) combines Google Cloud’s innovation with ClearDATA’s healthcare compliance expertise to speed advancements and scale healthcare IT infrastructure.

The new offering comes at a time when digital transformation is impacting healthcare. As pharmaceutical, life sciences and healthcare providers and payers keep pace with advanced analytics from large data sets, machine learning and other breakthrough technologies, they face numerous constraints to innovate including scalability and fear of data breaches, even with complex regulations in place to protect patient data. With the new partnership, healthcare organizations can ensure that security and protective measures are managed proactively while fully capitalizing on Google Cloud Platform’s advanced capabilities.

“Our partnership with Google Cloud gives those wanting to innovate on Google Cloud Platform the chance to do so in a secure and compliant environment without fear of compromising sensitive health data, ultimately increasing their opportunities to advance healthcare and improve patient outcomes,” said Darin Brannan, CEO of ClearDATA.

ClearDATA customers can save the time it takes to manually build settings and apply compliance regulations, while also reducing the risk of exposing data through human error with ClearDATA Automated Safeguards for Google Compute Engine. These safeguards include hardened images based on CIS benchmarks, data back-ups using automated snapshots, storage volume encryption, intrusion prevention, and enabled logging and log back-ups.

By making ClearDATA’s solution available on GCP, developers working in the healthcare industry will soon be able to take advantage of Google Kubernetes Engine – an extensive, open-source, container system that focuses on automating deployment and scalability. Integrated into ClearDATA’s compliance dashboard, organizations utilizing Kubernetes to enable the use of container technology will be able to get a view into the state of compliance against HIPAA, GxP, GDPR, and other leading healthcare standards.
