Efficiency brought to the security process
Before using Ostendio, emocha was like many other companies using spreadsheets and email to handle document management and training. By upgrading to an integrated risk management tool, emocha has seen the benefits that can bring. Cohen added, “There were a lot of manual processes that were occurring, and using Ostendio has freed up some time that otherwise would be used for something more mundane.” Without Ostendio, Cohen says emocha would be using multiple platforms to complete the same work.
A feature-rich solution supporting multiple data security requirements
emocha knew they had many requirements and they were looking for a feature-rich solution to meet their needs. At first, they were focused on a platform that could just handle change management in their production environment and the Document Management module of Ostendio met their needs seamlessly.
But they quickly realized they needed help in many other areas also, such as security training, particularly with regards to HIPAA. By using the Ostendio platform they found it easy to implement training courses across the company. Training can be run for all employees and includes tracking so they know who has taken and passed the training, and when updates to training are required.
Inventory management was also a challenge that the emocha team faced before they found the Ostendio platform. Once implemented, they were able to use the Ostendio Asset Management module to allocate assets to each employee and keep track of ownership.
And as a growing business, emocha also needed to respond to multiple customer security audits and planned to complete their own SOC2. Since the Ostendio Assessment module supports over 100 security standards and regulations, upgrading to Premium was a logical next step for this health tech company.
Castro added, “[Ostendio] helps keep us very organized and adherent to controls and processes that we need to
consider as we deal with PHI, PII and to operate in line with HIPAA regulations.”
Finding one solution to meet all their needs has made the process of data security more efficient for emocha.
