Thank you for choosing to utilize Armor’s Automated Compliance Solution for HIPAA. This Solution is meant to help our clients more easily achieve HIPAA compliance in the cloud. Armor has used its years of compliance experience helping companies implement HITRUST guidelines in the cloud to achieve HIPAA and combined that with our partnership and experience with AWS to develop this “infrastructure and security-as-code” solution. This solution is a CloudFormation Template.

Our CloudFormation Template allows customers to reliably and consistently spin up the basic client/server architecture necessary to run web applications in AWS in a way that is in-line and consistent with the HITRUST guidelines for implementing HIPAA in the cloud. This allows our clients’ developers to move at the speed of modern DevOps shops, while staying in-line with our clients’ security and compliance concerns.

This document acts as a guide to help walk you through the process of installing the template! If you have any questions feel free to reach out to Armor Support!
