Client Spotlight: The Macaluso Group’s Secure Journey to the Cloud

The Macaluso Group (TMG) provides leading-edge solutions for pharmaceutical and healthcare manufacturers, retailers, and financial services firms. The TMG mission is to creatively solve pharmaceutical and healthcare product marketing challenges by developing, delivering and responsively supporting innovative technology-based products and services that are focused on secure, reliable, easy-to-access, cost-attractive Pharmacy Benefits and Patient Assistance Programs.

Given the nature of their product and industry, TMG handles sensitive personal patient information, so it’s essential for them to be PCI and HIPAA compliant. In addition, TMG was looking to move to Amazon Web Services (AWS) but they did not have the internal resources or expertise to do so. TMG decided to search for a leading MSP to help them build, manage, and optimize a secure and compliant environment in AWS.

Enter Datapipe. The Macaluso Group came to Datapipe to build an environment in AWS that could help them attain compliance and continue to scale their rapidly-growing business. With cloud technology growing exponentially, it can be challenging to identify threats before they arise, but Datapipe helps TMG do just that – the Datapipe security team met TMG’s compliance and growth needs. Datapipe’s deep security expertise allowed TMG to develop a solution that dramatically reduces the risk of disruption of service or data breach due to unauthorized access or activity of an AWS environment. Working with Datapipe allows TMG to deploy secure and compliant marketing solutions to their clients with choice, control, and confidence.
