RICHARDSON, Texas & ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Organizations with complex security and compliance needs are increasingly turning to outside partners to reinforce this critical aspect of their business so they can focus on customer service and growth. To that end, Pharmaceutical Strategies Group (PSG), the leading pharmacy intelligence and technology company, selected Armor, the first totally secure cloud company, to host and protect client data across its enterprise.
“Maintaining our clients’ trust, particularly around the security of their data, is our utmost priority, and we take it very seriously,” said Dave Borden, CEO, PSG. “As the threat landscape continues to intensify, particularly in healthcare, we need a partner that has the skills and solutions to address security and compliance challenges in a scalable manner as we continue to grow. With Armor, we have aligned with proven experts that are as committed as we are to helping our clients succeed – in this case by successfully navigating and mitigating security risks while providing the infrastructure and support to deliver superior insights and analytics.”
Armor Complete was selected by PSG for its HIPAA-compliant approach to secure private cloud hosting. The solution manages healthcare compliance and security controls to safeguard ePHI (electronic protected health information) among other sensitive data. Features include two-factor authentication, log management, persistent data encryption, vulnerability scanning and a dedicated next-generation firewall.
“PSG serves a critical role in the healthcare continuum and Armor is the ideal partner to support their mission without impeding their ability to manage vast amounts of sensitive data,” said Jared Day, president, Armor. “This is no small feat. Organizations that serve the healthcare industry are frequently targeted by cyber criminals and must take extra care to secure data and meet increasingly strict compliance standards. Backed by Armor, we’re confident that PSG can continue to exceed their clients’ expectations.”
PSG has a diverse product and service portfolio for health systems, payers, multi-employer groups and Fortune 500 employers. For over 20 years, PSG has offered consulting and technology with powerful analytics that meet the evolving needs of its customers and help them make informed healthcare decisions.
“Collecting and analyzing data is central to supporting our clients in optimizing their pharmacy spending,” said Rishi Khullar, chief product & technology officer, PSG. “Clearly, this is highly sensitive information and security is our chief concern. With Armor, we not only enhance customer data protection, but also deliver highly reliable and scalable solutions that allow us to provide our clients with actionable intelligence that helps them mitigate risk and optimize their pharmacy spend.”
