PRNewswire/ --

  • Meet healthcare market demand for securing patient information in the cloud.
  • Protect customer calls and messages in transit and at rest with secure encryption.
  • Reflect Mitel's commitment to upholding a high level of security and compliance.

Mitel® (Nasdaq: MITL) (TSX:MNW), a global leader in business communications, announced today several of its hosted cloud platforms have been certified as meeting Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) standards. This certification is part of Mitel's continued commitment to ensuring high levels of security for healthcare customers while enabling them to improve clinical workflow and patient care. Mitel's HIPAA-compliant solutions include MiCloud Office, MiCloud Business, MiCloud Enterprise and Clearspan.

Mandated by the U.S. Health and Human Services Dept. in 1996, HIPAA specifies laws to secure protected health information and patient health data. To address HIPAA requirements, Mitel created a robust, multi-layer security framework with numerous physical and technical safeguards enforced by stringent administrative policies. The framework was designed by a dedicated information security team responsible for ongoing monitoring and assessment, and certified as compliant by Schellman and Company.

For HIPAA-covered organizations desiring additional security assurance, Mitel can execute a tailored Business Associate Agreement as part of the customer's service contract.
