PHOENIX, Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearDATA, the healthcare industry leader in cloud computing, platform and information security services, announced today that veteran cloud computing executive Steve Crusenberry has joined the company as Senior Vice President of Products. Most recently, Steve was SVP, Products and Engineering for Rackspace where he managed the hybrid, public and private cloud products.

As ClearDATA's SVP of Products, Crusenberry will chart a strategic vision for ClearDATA's secure cloud platform to deliver best-in-class technologies for the healthcare industry. He brings more than 20 years of infrastructure and cloud computing-specific executive experience in IT, engineering and operations to ClearDATA.

"Steve is one of the cloud industry's foremost experts on product development and strategy for innovative, enterprise-scale managed services," said Matt Ferrari, Chief Technology Officer, ClearDATA. "His talents are a huge win for our customers and will contribute considerably to ClearDATA's mission to modernize the healthcare IT infrastructure."

As a healthcare-exclusive multi-cloud services provider, ClearDATA secures and manages data belonging to healthcare-related organizations in a HIPAA-compliant, HITRUST CSF-certified environment, 100% purpose-built for healthcare. ClearDATA also offers additional data management services to facilitate "Healthcare Big Data" initiatives and enables interoperability without sacrificing security. All with the goal of removing barriers to healthier healthcare – making health data safer, smarter and more secure.

"I firmly believe in ClearDATA's vision for making healthcare healthier every single day," said Crusenberry. "I'm excited to join our mission to first fix the universally fragmented and broken health IT infrastructure, then enhance privacy and security to protect patient health information, and ultimately break down siloes to enable true data exchange."

ClearDATA's HealthDATA Multi-Cloud Computing Platform is a viable and highly secure alternative to on premise data storage. It effectively modernizes IT operations for healthcare organizations while taking the daily responsibilities of managing protected health information off their hands. It also eliminates the need to purchase and maintain hardware and software, and to keep internal IT staff trained on the latest security breach types and defenses.

Along with solving longstanding security issues, the ClearDATA healthcare cloud offers significant benefits for data analytics. No matter how much data streams in, cloud storage can easily expand and scale to contain it. This is in stark contrast to the time-consuming effort of procuring and installing physical storage infrastructure internally. In essence, organizations can purchase capacity as they need it and have it instantly available, making what was once an unpredictable capital outlay an easier-to-budget operational expense.
