Chief Technology Officer and Ushur cofounder Henry Peter said: “At Ushur, privacy and security of customers’ data and compliance with regulatory requirements has always been the top priority, and our certification with HITRUST further confirms that our platform and the solutions developed on it are eminently trustworthy. Self-serve, digital-first customer experiences that meet the rigorous demands of security and compliance take a heavy toll on enterprise infrastructure and especially on their IT team.
