ShareFile independently certified as “HIPAA Compliant”. Citrix ShareFile has earned the “HIPAA Compliant” seal from Sword & Shield.
The seal affirms that, according to Sword & Shield Enterprise Security’s independent assessment, ShareFile has implemented the necessary security measures to safeguard Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI).
ShareFile handles the encryption and decryption of all files, including those containing PHI. Customers can, at their discretion, also encrypt les prior to uploading. If a customer chooses to do this, ShareFile will still auto- matically encrypt les a second time. ShareFile uploads and downloads les between the end user and the storage tier directly over a Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
or Transport Layer Security (TLS) encrypted segment using high-grade encryption with no less than 128-bit
key strength. ShareFile supports SSL 3.0 and TLS, which are the same encryption protocols and algorithms used by e-commerce services and online banking. ShareFile also stores all les at rest using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a 256-bit key. Additionally, custom- ers can con gure multiple mobile device controls, such as requiring users to enter a passcode to encrypt ShareFile content on mobile devices.
The ShareFile SaaS application and storage tier are hosted by industry-leading providers in geographically separate SSAE 16 accredited datacenters. Measures are in place to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to data-processing equipment, such as tele- phones, database and application servers, and related hardware, where PHI may be processed or stored.
These measures include:
+ establishing secure areas
+ protecting and restricting access paths
+ securing data-processing equipment and personal computers
+ establishing and documenting access authorizations for employees and third parties
+ placing regulations and restrictions on card-keys
+ restricting physical access to servers by using electronically-locked doors and separate cages within co-location facilities
+ logging, monitoring, auditing and tracking all access to datacenters where PHI is hosted via electronic surveillance conducted by security personnel
For suitable levels of redundancy, ShareFile main- tains multiple servers in its primary datacenter and deploys a mirrored environment at a geographically separate datacenter.
To help ensure that PHI has not been altered or destroyed in transit or at rest, ShareFile uses industry- accepted hashing algorithms to verify le integrity during le upload and download. Customers are encouraged to adopt and use folder and re-naming policies and conventions to further protect PHI stored in ShareFile.
