Armor Collaborates with Digital Healthcare Communications Company to Protect Critical Healthcare Applications, Sensitive Patient Data

Healthcare data is one of the most popular targets for today’s savvy threat actors. To defend against these advanced threats — and proactively maintain HIPAA and ISO 27001 compliance — xmachina selects Armor to secure a mass-scale healthcare application for one of their major international pharmaceutical customers. Armor , a leader in active cyber defense, strengthens cloud-based security environments for global organizations.

The patient-focused application, which leads the physical therapy industry, streamlines medication treatments and communication with doctors or nurses. Understanding the importance of ISO 13485 requirements, xmachina operates the application, which is self-administered by patients and supports their therapy. The program requires patients to have a secure method of capturing and submitting data.

To support this innovative functionality, xmachina chose Armor Complete because of Armor’s focus on providing secure and compliant managed cloud experiences for its customers. Armor Complete , which is powered by Armor’s proven and secure Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), is the ideal solution for organizations that store, access or manage critical or sensitive data that requires the best in security architecture, performance and service.

Healthcare organizations are among Armor’s largest and most loyal customers. As the managed security provider for four of the top 10 healthcare SaaS companies, Armor is trusted by healthcare organizations for their security-first solutions and understanding of industry compliance.

Armor scales and applies security controls based on learnings from protecting a global customer environment. The company develops its threat intelligence from more than 800,000 open research sources and a worldwide proprietary honeypot network.

Key Highlights:

  • xmachina, who was working in conjunction with the pharmaceutical manufacturer, conducted a global search for an effective secure cloud environment.
  • Armor Complete was able to deliver the required secure global footprint with ISO 27001 certification, and also was capable of supporting HIPAA compliance, which was non-negotiable.
  • xmachina’s quality management system is certified according to EN ISO 13485. This is why the digital agency and healthcare expert is approved to develop and operate software and apps in the healthcare market.
