Lumen21 Launches HITRUST "Compliant Cloud Computing" Solution

Secure Infrastructure-as-a-Service environment is fully compliant with Healthcare, Financial services, Retail and other industry regulations

ORANGE, Calif., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumen21, an award-winning global technology firm specializing in compliance and technology, today launched Lumen21 Compliant Cloud Computing, a comprehensive cloud computing infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) that is built to be fully compliant with an organization's specific regulatory requirements.

Lumen21 Compliant Cloud Computing follows the CSF (Common Security Framework) of HITRUST, which is a certifiable framework used by organizations. HITRUST CSF provides organizations with a comprehensive, flexible, efficient and certifiable approach to regulatory compliance and risk management.

Lumen21's solution is compliant out-of-the-box. An organization can take its application to the cloud with the confidence that its infrastructure is fully compliant with industry regulations from a single vendor. It is the ideal IaaS solution for healthcare organizations, financial services firms, retailers or any enterprise needing a secured cloud environment.

Lumen21 Compliant Cloud Computing offers a distinct advantage over many cloud computing vendors because it understands the intricacies of compliance and has taken the extra steps to achieve certifications specific to the industries it serves. Organizations who want to gain the advantages of cloud computing in a HIPAA environment will particularly benefit from Lumen21Compliant Cloud Computing.

In addition, retailers and etailers can be assured their platforms will be PCI DSS compliant while Lumen21 can also help financial services firms comply with GLBA to ensure these firms protect the security and confidentiality of "nonpublic personal information."

"Our goal with the Lumen21 Compliant Cloud Computing was to develop an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) service model for implementing, managing and taking care of all compliancy issues while taking advantage of all the benefits of a private cloud," said Eduardo Don Jr., President of Lumen21. "Failure to meet HIPAA and other compliancy laws can have devastating consequences for an organization. Our HITRUST CSF-compliant solution is one less thing an organization has to worry about."

Lumen21 offers a cost-effective service that end-users, resellers or ISV's (Independent Software Vendors) can easily deploy to their customers to provide access to all of an organization's computing resources in a secured virtualized environment.

Lumen21 Compliant Cloud Computing includes:

  • Proven Redundant, Compliant and Certifiable Cloud Infrastructure
  • Managed IT Services
  • Managed Security Services
  • Integrated Professional Services
  • Documented Processes

Lumen21 Compliant Cloud Computing is easily scalable.  If a customer's operations fluctuate, or they are on a fast growth path, the service is flexible because it is cloud based.  The cloud gives you the benefit to expand and or contract your server, storage and networking components as your needs call for it, permanently or short term and that can be provisioned quite often in 24 hours or less.

About HITRUST CSF Certification

HITRUST CSF rationalizes healthcare-relevant regulations and standards into a single overarching security framework. Because the HITRUST CSF is both risk- and compliance-based, organizations can tailor the security control baselines based on a variety of factors including organization type, size, systems and regulatory requirements. By continuing to improve and update the CSF, the HITRUST CSF has become the most widely-adopted security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry.
