As we’ve mentioned a number of times – at Paubox we take securing your data seriously and it’s embedded into our company culture.
HITRUST CSF Certified status demonstrates that our solutions have met key regulatory requirements and industry-defined requirements and is appropriately managing risk.
This achievement places Paubox in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
At this time we believe Paubox to be the only HIPAA compliant email provider to have their solution achieve HITRUST CSF Certified status.
“Our customers are trusting us to meet complex compliance requirements such as HIPAA, NIST, ISO and COBIT,” said Hoala Greevy, Founder CEO of Paubox. “The HITRUST CSF is the gold-standard that needs to be met, and we are very pleased to be able to demonstrate our commitment by achieving HITRUST CSF Certification for our systems.”
