Is Barracuda Messenger HIPAA compliant?

No, Barracuda Messenger isn’t HIPAA compliant. There’s no mention of HIPAA or a BAA on the company’s website.

Barracuda Messenger provides end-to-end encryption for communications, enabling you to exchange both video and audio calls as well as text messages in a confidential, secure environment.

Even though Barracuda Messenger secures conversations in all locations and on all devices, the security features aren’t sufficient to meet HIPAA requirements. Also, Barracuda Messenger makes no mention of signing a business associate agreement (BAA).

Covered entities looking for a video and text messaging platform for PHI should use another tool that meets HIPAA requirements.
