AUSTIN, Texas (Apr. 3, 2020) ClearDATA®, the leader in healthcare public cloud security, compliance and privacy, today announced that JMP Securities financial services firm has named the company to its “Elite 80” list. The annual Elite 80 report (formerly Super 70) identifies companies that exhibit the ability to iterate innovative products and respond to the changing cybersecurity and IT landscape, demonstrating strong growth with next-generation solutions that meet market demand.

“In a time of unprecedented stress on the healthcare industry as it works to contain COVID-19, the cloud is playing an increasingly vital role. Providers and other healthcare organizations are pushing the limits of innovation and operational efficiency in hopes of improving patient outcomes,” said Darin Brannan, Chief Executive Officer at ClearDATA. “We are honored to be included in this year’s JMP Securities Elite 80 list, recognizing the resilience and optimism of our team at ClearDATA as we solve complex privacy, compliance and security challenges for healthcare in the public cloud.”

The report highlights companies developing disruptive technologies that are expected to transform industries by displacing traditional and legacy approaches. JMP Securities notes that the firm’s analysts “personally spoke with executives of each Elite 80 member and believe the companies have the capabilities to dominate their respective markets. Security and IT environments are evolving so rapidly that the need for innovation is accelerating as traditional approaches are deemed inadequate for new business models.”

The award recognizes the benefits of the ClearDATA Healthcare Cloud Security and Compliance Platform™ including its HITRUST certification, multi-cloud solution for data security and overall risk mitigation. Following strategic executive hires, new and expanded partnerships alongside a series of innovations focused on safeguarding healthcare systems, ClearDATA has begun 2020 with increased momentum built on proven success and customer focus. The Elite 80 award comes on the heels of ClearDATA’s listing among Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies, in which they were ranked eighth in security.

“We are resolute in our mission to make the cloud secure and accessible, while quickly expanding the capacity of the healthcare industry as it races to get ahead of this global pandemic. With the unique urgency at hand, we have been able to stand up secure and compliant environments for clients on the front lines against COVID-19 in mere days and foresee this trend to continue as more healthcare organizations move to the cloud,” said Brannan.
