ADE Incorporated understands the importance of database security in today's web-enabled society. It is important for end users to know that more than adequate security measures are taken to ensure the safety of their data. Protecting customer information, not only from the outside but from within, requires constant vigilance and attention.

We believe database security consists of a well-planned security structure. Server security, combined with trusted IP addresses, appropriate permission levels, and a password-protected database access are all part of the security picture. Firewalls, data encryption, and security software add to the overall security of a well-designed and monitored infrastructure. We also ensure that all client data is hosted in a HIPAA-compliant environment. Our customers deserve to know that all possible precautions are taken to protect their data.

We are pleased to announce that the Michigan data center employed by ADE Incorporated for data services completed their HIPAA audit and achieved 100 percent HIPAA compliance in all 54 HIPAA citations, including the complete set of 136 audited components. This managed center is the first in Michigan to achieve HIPAA compliance.

The data center leads the market with their SAS-70 and SSAE-16 audits and is the only data center in Michigan to achieve its SOC 2 & 3 audits. This allows the data center to deliver HIPAA compliant solutions to all health care clients also.

We are pleased that we can provide this level of confidence to our customers.
