AWS has expanded its HIPAA Compliance Program to include Amazon CloudFront, Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration, AWS WAF, and AWS Shield as HIPAA eligible Services. If you have an executed Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with AWS, you can now use Amazon CloudFront to accelerate the delivery of protected health information (PHI), Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration for faster transfers of PHI to and from Amazon S3, AWS WAF to protect your web applications from common web exploits, and AWS Shield to safeguard your web applications running on AWS from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Information on HIPAA eligible services on AWS can be found at our HIPAA Compliance page.
If you already have an executed BAA with AWS, you can start using any of these services immediately with the accounts that your BAA covers. If you don’t have an executed BAA with AWS or have any other questions about HIPAA eligible services on AWS, contact us and we will put you in touch with a representative from our AWS sales team.
