Austin, TX - June 30, 2017 - OnRamp and Cloud Automation Solutions (CAS) announced today a strategic partnership providing secure solutions and services for sensitive patient health records to a Compliant Cloud File Share (CCFS) system for HIPAA compliance.
The direct connection between CAS’s file and email security services and OnRamp’s CCFS system allows healthcare professionals to move confidential data to a secure cloud infrastructure to maintain HIPAA compliance and maximize PHI security.
Data privacy is paramount to all organizations but is especially critical to the success of those organizations who store and transmit sensitive data. According to the HIPAA Journal, there were 329 breaches of 500 or more records reported in 2016, leaving more than 16 million records exposed. Strong data encryption technology could have prevented these breaches from unauthorized access or disclosure – the main cause of healthcare data breaches and the exposure of confidential records.
“By utilizing Onramp’s CCFS solution, data management and security move seamlessly across multiple devices, applications, and locations,” says Robert Whitwell, CEO of CAS. “We provide the end-to-end solution for HIPAA compliancy from storage and email encryption to disaster recovery and backup.”
As companies grow, so does their data; the CCFS solution simplifies data management and helps you stay in control of compliance and security. As patient health care records are accessed from more devices across the globe, the cost of non-compliance, or a breach, is often too much to bear for businesses that operate in or adjacent to the medical sector.
Unlike consumer-grade file sync services, such as DropBox, Microsoft OneDrive, and Google Drive – which are based in public clouds – OnRamp’s service leverages a secure private cloud environment, architected on highly available, enterprise-class infrastructure, housed in state-of-the-art facilities. With advanced access controls, military-grade encryption, comprehensive auditing, and built-in data protection features, OnRamp ensures the utmost in security and compliance for users of this solution – something most other file sync and sharing services cannot guarantee.
CAS rapidly deploys IT infrastructure and applications to the cloud platform, making the merge from on-premise hardware to remote cloud environments as seamless as possible. CAS guides customers through end-to-end IT lifecycle management including migration considerations such as performance and application portability. We specialize in enterprise data center automation and migration in and out of the cloud using the right tools with minimal risk or downtime, ultimately increasing business efficiency and value. Both OnRamp and CAS are based in Austin, TX, offering local access to file storage and services.

Our solutions help organizations meet compliance standards including HIPAA, PCI, SOX, FISMA and FERPA. Our team’s consultative approach helps you develop the right mix of solutions, including colocation, managed hosting and cloud services.
