GravityZone Cloud solution

Bitdefender does not directly receive, store, process, or transmit electronic protected health data (ePHI). As a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) security services, Bitdefender offers security capabilities to its customers, and the customers may implement those services in their own ePHI environment. The organization does not manage or store any customer ePHI, and telemetry data is transmitted via Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to Bitdefender.

To be in line with HIPAA regulations, please make sure you do not submit files that may contain electronic protected health data (ePHI) to Sandbox Analyzer or other Bitdefender services for additional analysis.
