At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the rapid adoption of digital technology was critical as organizations across many industries were forced, seemingly overnight, to change their business model. More than a year later, and this remains true as businesses and corporations continue to operate remotely or via a hybrid model. The healthcare industry too felt the harsh impact of a pandemic that pushed the industry to the brink at a time when sharing patient information between care teams was pivotal. But the need for exchanging data between provider and patient or between providers – is one that must continue to be met in this new remote and, in most cases, contactless way of doing business. 

We’re excited to announce that we are working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to bring our enterprise-level digital cloud fax technology to millions of businesses worldwide. Now AWS customers have the ability to access eFax solutions right from AWS Marketplace so they can securely send and receive faxes by email or through a web interface, from any internet-connected device and from any location. Digital Cloud Fax Technology (DCFT) is a way forward for organizations to improve the digital transmission of information by eliminating paper, optimizing workflows, and enhancing regulatory compliance.  

A leading cloud fax vendor is available to AWS customers worldwide

The eFax solution, an enterprise class digital cloud fax technology, is also now part of the AWS Partner Network (APN) and available for purchase in AWS Marketplace.  AWS customers who purchase eFax can securely and reliably send a fax from any internet-connected device, without having to worry if the receiver successfully received the entire fax and in the right order. The result is an increase in reliability, a boost in productivity and the elimination of costly on-site fax hardware.

eFax cloud-based fax solution is specifically designed to send and receive fax efficiently as secure email attachments regardless of the underlying network technology. With the eFax Corporate app, AWS customers save time with a simple workflow – scan, enter phone number, press “send fax.” The eFax Enterprise API enables high-volume faxing directly to other applications, providing a unified faxing and billing environment that simplifies the fax administration process.

IT departments will no longer have to manage the expenses and acquisition costs of server hardware, software, server license, and other hardware equipment.

Enhancing regulatory compliance for AWS customers 

AWS Marketplace reaches organizations and individuals worldwide, across many heavily regulated industries, including healthcare (e.g. payers, providers, and healthcare IT organizations), life sciences, legal, insurance, financial services, and manufacturing. eFax cloud fax solutions can help enterprise customers meet strict compliance and regulatory requirements found in many industries. HITRUST CSF® Certified, eFax Corporate is designed to comply with the strictest national and international security and privacy standards required by many healthcare enterprise customers, including HIPAA, the HITECH Act, and state regulations, as well as streamlining reporting for meaningful use and audit. Our digital cloud fax technology also complies with industry-specific federal privacy regulations including GLBA, SOX, ISO, NIST, GDPR, and PCI – all while protecting the privacy of confidential records. 

Helping AWS customers maintain the highest standards of privacy and security 

With eFax, AWS customers now have the first major cloud fax provider to achieve HITRUST CSF® Certification in their corner. By earning the HITRUST CSF® Certification, eFax has further demonstrated its commitment to maintaining the highest standards in the industry – adding another layer of assurance to AWS customers. With eFax, fax data resides in redundant Tier III/IV-rated, highly secure colocations, and private data centers. Two-factor authentication adds a vital level of security, preventing unauthorized access to faxes and data.
