Make “Identity Utopia” a Reality in Active Directory

When making a decision to move production workloads to the cloud, one of the first things that is considered is cost. However, there are frequently many hidden costs that are not factored into the cloud decision until they appear in the real world. For instance, what is the cost to end users’ productivity if they don’t have the correct access to the application or system that now resides in the cloud? What new burdens are placed on the IT team if end users, now managing identities in two places, constantly require assistance to access their work? What costs are associated with securely authenticating end users to the workload?

The Importance of HITRUST Certification in Azure

Healthcare providers today are continuing to rely more and more on the efficiencies of the public cloud to store, send, and manage sensitive data. But it’s challenging to leverage the benefits of the cloud while managing the increasing complexity of healthcare security, compliance and regulatory demands.

That’s where HITRUST comes in. The HITRUST Certification is the most widely recognized security accreditation in the healthcare industry.  HITRUST incorporates healthcare specific security, privacy and regulatory requirements from existing regulations such as HIPAA/HITECH, PCI, ISO 27001 and MARS-E as well as industry best practices. Microsoft has recently announced that Azure is one of the first hyperscale cloud computing platforms to become HITRUST CSF Certified.  It’s a valuable addition to Azure, providing a single framework for healthcare organizations to leverage the efficiencies, availability, and scalability that Azure provides.

The prediction holds.
