CliniPaths Corporate Security Policies & Procedures

Every CliniPaths employee is expected to respect the terms of our data confidentiality policies, available at and Access rights are based on employee’s role.

Security in our Software Development Lifecycle

CliniPaths uses Visual Studio Team Services revision control system. Changes to CliniPaths’s code base go through a suite of automated tests and are then manually reviewed. When code changes pass the automated testing system, the changes are first pushed to a staging server wherein CliniPaths employees are able to test changes before an eventual push to production servers. CliniPaths engineers also have the ability to "cherry pick" critical updates and push them immediately to production servers.

We also work with third-party security professionals to test our web application security.

CliniPaths Architecture & Scalability

Scalability/Reliability of Architecture

CliniPaths uses Microsoft Azure Web Services (SQL) to manage user data. The database is replicated synchronously so that we can quickly recover from a database failure. As an extra precaution, we take regular snapshots of the database and securely move them to a separate data center so that we can restore them elsewhere as needed, even in the event of a regional Microsoft Azure failure.

We currently host data in secure SSAE 16 audited data centers via Microsoft Azure.

Encrypted Transactions and Data

Web connections to the CliniPaths service are via TLS 1.2 and above. All data is encrypted at rest using performance optimized symmetric encryption.

Information Security

Security Consulting and Application Review
