Is Trustifi HIPAA compliant?

Healthcare organizations use an email security platform to ensure their emails are kept confidential and out of the hands of hackers. Trustifi is one of those options, but does it meet the HIPAA security standards?

Does Trustifi sign a business associate agreement?

One of the first considerations a covered entity needs to consider is if a third-party vendor will sign a business associate agreement (BAA).

Third-party vendors that have access to, store, or transmit protected health information (PHI) are considered business associates. A business associate has obligations under HIPAA to protect PHI from unauthorized people. 

A BAA covers all legal responsibilities of the business associate and its interaction with PHI.

Trustifi doesn’t mention on its website that it is willing to sign a BAA. There’s also no mention of a BAA, PHI, or HIPAA on the End User License Agreement.

However, a customer support representative says that Trustifi often signs BAAs. Covered entities will need to reach out to Trustifi directly to arrange a BAA to be signed.

Conclusion: Trustifi can be HIPAA compliant.

How is Paubox different from Trustifi?
