Public Cloud Compliance Made Easy

August 2, 2017
Cloud, Compliance

With the push for compliance in so many segments of business today, many companies, healthcare organizations, and financial institutions are struggling to find the balance between expensive dedicated or on-premise equipment and less expensive, non-compliant cloud services in a multi-tenant environment.

With US Signal’s Resource Pools, it is now possible to meet many of your compliance obligations — and maintain them — by moving into a multi-tenant environment to lower your costs and increase your flexibility.

Cloud Compliant Infrastructure

Built on infrastructure that’s both HIPAA compliant and PCI DSS certified, US Signal’s Resource Pools comprise one of the most secure public cloud services available — and can meet many of the most stringent compliance requirements. Security is further enhanced by US Signal’s protected network and redundant firewalls that restrict data access. 

Security Policies

A great example of our commitment to helping our customers meet their compliance obligations is our PIN authentication security policy. In the event the amount of resources in a customer’s “pool” needs to be modified or help is needed from US Signal’s Technical Operations Center (TOC), callers must authenticate themselves with a predetermined PIN. That PIN is then checked against a list of authorized contacts you set up in your initial order process. Requests are then logged for a report that can be provided to your company for audit purposes. This security policy keeps unauthorized or disgruntled employees from disrupting your systems.

Within the cloud itself, you can assign additional users to groups and set granular control for every access element of your system.  You can also setup additional logging within the cloud, allowing you to self-administrate your own internal compliance policies.    

Secure Data Centers

Your data is kept safe in our geographically diverse data centers with 24/7/365 premise and network monitoring by the US Signal TOC, so you know that it is safe, secure, and right where you left it.

Compliance Assistance and Support

US Signal offers reports to the appropriate organization to verify that you, our customer, are using compliant resources. As an organization, US Signal is independently audited to meet SSAE 16, SOC 1, TYPE 2, SOC2, Type1, as well as HIPAA/HITECH and PCI-DSS. We can also sign Business Associate Agreements to meet HIPAA requirements for third-party vendors.
