How tab32 Ensures Practice Security and HIPAA ComplianceDo you know the level of security of your cloud-based dental software? Are their servers internal or do they use a vendor with additional security measures? Are they audited regularly by outside agencies to ensure the highest level of security? Are they SOC 2 certified? Do you even know? 

The bottom line is that you're trusting them with your sensitive, HIPAA-protected data and you need to know. And it's okay to ask and be picky about the answers you get. At tab32, your security is paramount and we're happy to answer any questions you have about your data's security.

Protection at log-in

If you've logged in to tab32, you probably noticed that we utilize a Google log-in in order to access our system. What you may not know is that we use Google authentication for security purposes. Unlike software programs where you create a new username and password, Google security adds extra protection. A simple log-in won't protect you like Google, especially if you utilize a two-factor authentication for your Google accounts. It could be easy for hackers to simply try to guess your password if you don't have additional protections in place.

But logging in isn't the only place we use to protect our users and your mission-critical data. Since you are storing and accessing sensitive protected health information (PHI), you have an additional responsibility. This data is susceptible to breaches do to its nature, but also needs to be protected under HIPAA. 

Security in the cloud

We've talked before about the additional security offered by cloud software. Offering a cloud-based solution allows us to give our customers the highest level of security. You likely don't have an IT security expert in your office, so you rely on your vendors to provide that. We give you peace of mind knowing that your data is as secure as is can be. Both our software engineers and our cloud provider offer security that you can't duplicate in your office.

For example, our cloud provider is routinely audited by outside parties to ensure they meet the highest standards, including SOC 2 and ISO 27001. These are the highest rated security certifications, available to high-performing organizations. In contrast, a number of other cloud-based software providers use their own servers. They may say they're secure, but these arrangements just can't offer the same security we do through our partner.

With tab32, your data is as safe as it can be. We want to give you safety, security, and peace of mind. Contact us today to learn more about our data protection, we'd be happy to give you specifics.
