HIPAA Compliant Clouds
Patient data can be secure in the cloud, and more highly available, especially when you know the physical location of your data and have evidence that all of the appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards are in place.
Secure HIPAA clouds
Our HIPAA clouds have security built into the core with AES 256 bit encryption that meets the NIST standard offered at the hardware level. This means strong technical protection without negatively impacting your application performance. We carry this dedication to encrypting all cloud data all the way to our offsite backup and recovery locations, so your data remains safe in-transit, at-rest, and in offsite backup storage. Encryption, antivirus, and patch management are all defaults, but add any or all of our additional technical security protections like daily (human) log review, file integrity monitoring, and vulnerability scanning for the ultimate in secure hosting.
Compliant HIPAA clouds
As a Business Associate dedicated to protecting patient data, we train all of our staff regularly and undergo rigorous, independent annual auditing against many compliance standards, including the OCR HIPAA Audit protocol, SOC 2, PCI DSS, and Safe Harbor. Of course, we sign Business Associate Agreements in a timely fashion, and understand our responsibility to monitor and report any suspicious activity that might jeopardize patient data. You could say we live and breathe compliance; it's a culture, not a checkbox. We invite you to come experience our dedication to compliance with an onsite visit to any one of our five midwest data centers. You'll sleep better knowing who's watching over your cloud.
High-availability HIPAA clouds
For some healthcare applications, lives are literally on the line. Your HIPAA clouds reside in our high-availability, fully redundant infrastructure with multiple feeds for power, network, and internet service providers. You will know the physical location of your patient data, inside one of our geographically safe midwest data centers, with historically low risks of natural disaster. Putting your healthcare applications in the cloud gives you more flexibility with meeting the requirements of offsite backup, and more importantly, more realistic recovery options when the unexpected happens. Whether you are starting with offsite backup and recovery or moving your healthcare production applications all the way to the top of the high-availability spectrum by adding technologies like replication, we'll help you evaluate the options and find the most appropriate match for your applications.
