Is Couchbase HIPAA complaint?


#1

Hello,

We are into developing healthcare products and interested to use CouchBase for our solutions. Before we start integrating Couchbase with our solutions we would like to know if Couchbase is HIPAA complaint.

Can someone please let clarify this?

Thanks,
Kishore

Hi Kishore, Couchbase can be used in a HIPAA env for sure, however certification for HIPAA is not possible to achieve with a database product given HIPAA covers a large area of operational and security practices.

I’d highly recommend Don’s talk from Couchbase Connect a few weeks ago on security best practices if you are just getting started: http://www.couchbase.com/connect/agenda/securing-a-couchbase-deployment/
