June 29, 2021, Ann Arbor, Mich. — Otava, a global leader in custom and compliant cloud solutions, today announced it has been certified compliant by third party auditors in its annual process. Certifications include HIPAA-HITECH, HITRUST, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, and SOC 1, 2, and 3.
Coverage spans both physical data centers as well as Otava’s solution portfolio. By provisioning secure and compliant services, Otava cost effectively alleviates many of the technical compliance challenges for its customers while delivering premium compliant cloud solutions.

The company’s HIPAA/HITECH audits, which healthcare organizations rely on, have also recently been reaffirmed. Otava is current with ISO 27001, and HITRUST which will both renew later this year.
