CLARIFIRE® SaaS Technology



SaaS: The CLARIFIRE workflow application is delivered to our clients as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution supporting standard secure web browser access. The CLARIFIRE SaaS application operates within the dedicated Clarifire Private Cloud infrastructure solution described below in the Hosting section. Clarifire manages all aspects of the infrastructure and services in addition to application development and application support including:

  • Core code development, source code management, software deployments, and ongoing application support
  • Supporting the integration into various third party systems as required either through real-time transactional or batch file interfaces
  • Day-to-day operation of the client's CLARIFIRE application instance in accordance with contractually agreed to SLA's for:
    • Transaction response times
    • System availability
    • Batch processing
    • Back-ups and recovery
    • Disaster recovery

Clarifire's SaaS model is designed as a zero footprint solution, in that it is a web based software delivered in the Clarifire Private Cloud with no equipment required on the client's premises. No servers or services to buy or maintain. The client's certified users simply need high-speed Internet access and a web browser to access the CLARIFIRE application. This allows efficient product releases and configuration updates along with fast and easy capacity increases as needed with no client staff resource contention.

Expansion as your business needs grow is simple. CLARIFIRE is based on configuration and not tied to a single use case. The CLARIFIRE solution can meet all needs from simple approvals to complex decisioning and audit tracking. Simply build a new process, and get started.

For customers that adopt our Mobile-centric CLARIFIRE HEALTHCARE® solution, we provide assistance with the acquisition and management of all mobile devices needed (i.e. iPads, iPhones). We work closely with your company’s IT department regarding MDM configuration and enrollment of your devices within Apple’s DEP program.

SOC

SOC 2 Type II Compliance: Clarifire is a SOC 2 Type II attested company, which means we have established and attested to audit controls in place meeting the SOC 2 Trust Principles of:

  • Security
  • Availability
  • Processing integrity
  • Confidentiality

The documented annual attestation report is a formal engagement process enabling Clarifire to have an external third party test our controls operating effectiveness from a policy, procedural, process, and governance standpoint.

This protection is key for information security compliance as Clarifire offers Software-as-a-Service solutions on secured platforms. The Service Organization Controls (SOC) reports are designed to foster trust and confidence in service organizations that operate information systems and provide information system services to other entities, through a report by an independent Certified Public Accountant attesting the compliance with robust security standards and protocols.

While Clarifire has chosen to become fully SOC 2 Type II compliant and have these controls attested to by an external auditor through an annual report, the relevant critical controls map back to other key compliance, regulatory, certification guidelines and policies such as FISMA, NIST 800-53, PCI-DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, GLBA, ISO 27001, and others.

These efforts have led to several high achievement recognition accolades such as Gold Standard labelling for Supplier Reviews with several of our clients. This attestation is further evidence of Clarifire's leadership as an SaaS provider.
