AWS Single Sign-On is now HIPAA eligible

Today, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced that AWS Single Sign-On (AWS SSO) is now HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) eligible. AWS SSO is where customers create, or connect, workforce identities and manage their access centrally across AWS accounts. HIPAA eligibility means that customers subject to HIPAA – including health insurance companies, healthcare providers, healthcare clearinghouses, government programs that pay for healthcare, military and veterans’ health programs, as well as their associates – can now use AWS SSO for authentication and authorization of users who configure or manage AWS workloads that store, process or transmit Protected Health Information (PHI) and users who sign into applications integrated with AWS SSO that utilize PHI.
