NEW HAVEN, CONN., January 25, 2021 – Square 9 Softworks®, developers of award-winning enterprise content management (ECM) and digital transformation solutions, is proud to announce GlobalSearch Cloud, their cloud ECM platform, and GlobalCapture Cloud Transformation Services, has achieved Service Organization Control (SOC) 1 Type 1, SOC 2 Type 2 and HIPAA compliance recertification.
The SOC 1 and 2 standards, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), are a recognized attestation that certifies Square 9’s information security policies and procedures for handling data meet strict principles for storage, security, availability, and confidentiality.
“Square 9 remains committed to providing industry-leading, cloud-enabled solutions for our cloud customers. Many organizations have had to evolve and provide end-users access to their critical records and content from remote workspaces; SOC 1 and 2 certifications assure our end users and resellers that we have implemented the proper controls and audit measures to make certain their important records and content remain secure and available” said Michael Frattini, Senior Vice President of Operations and Corporate Compliance Officer at Square 9.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Security Rule of 2003, commonly referred to as HIPAA, addresses the security of electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI). The addition of HIPAA certification extends Square 9’s commitment to security, availability, and confidentiality for those customers that process or store any ePHI within Square 9’s cloud. Square 9’s HIPAA certification enables executing Business Associate Agreements with all covered entities, providing the peace of mind that their information will be handled and secured according to confidentiality standards.
“The pandemic may have sped up the need for many organizations to move their records management strategy to the cloud. It is important to these organizations that their service provider can guarantee their records will not be disclosed except where meaningful use applies. Achieving HIPAA certification assures our customers and resellers that they can rely on Square 9 to have the requisite physical and technical safeguards needed to ensure ePHI privacy and security,” explained Erin Keller, Director of Operations and Square 9’s HIPAA Compliance Officer.
