Key Features of the HealthFORT Platform for AWS

Hardened Operating Systems and Amazon Machine Images (AMI)
We have developed specific operating system security configurations necessary to secure the instances from compromise and data loss. These form the basis of a security profile that is designed to meet HIPAA standards and allow PHI to be hosted in the AWS environment.

Hardened Network Configuration
Within an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), we apply specific network configuration standards for access control and traffic separation. We also configure dedicated security instances for advanced firewalling and VPN termination. As a best practice, we establish separate network environments for Dev/Test vs. Production environments. This provides for a smooth flow of code pipelines while maintaining production safeguards.

Encryption Configurations to Meet HIPAA Standards
We build AWS environments with the correct encryption standards across services to maintain strict compliance at all times.

Cloud Formations
Our team of AWS engineers maintain a set of cloud formation templates that automate building service and compliance standards into each environment build, server spin up, storage configuration or network set up. This level of automation not only ensures that services meet security and compliance standards, it also provides an audit trail for evidence in compliance and security audits.

Select 3rd Party Applications
To supplement AWS components, we provide integrated 3rd party applications and services directly into an AWS environment. Examples include Database Encryption, Security Event and Incident Management (SEIM) systems, Backup/Recovery software and Anti-virus solutions.

Portal and API
Access to your healthcare platform is available through our multi-cloud portal and APIs.
