The company’s services offer “business owners, IT managers, and webmasters” customized platforms that meet their specific needs. Its services are offered through “geographically diverse” SSAE 16 and ISO 27001-certified and HITRUST, PCI and HIPAA-compliant data centers. They include cloud solutions such as virtual private clouds, dedicated private clouds, and hybrid cloud hosting. Hostway also offers shared hosting, managed hosting, dedicated private servers, ecommerce solutions and customizable Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions. HITRUST CSF certification underscores Hostway’s ability and commitment to address industry regulations and protect customers’ sensitive information.
HITRUST CSF certification indicates that Hostway’s applications meet industry regulations and requirements related to managing risk. Only a limited number of providers have achieved this certification, which includes “federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks”. Through the certification Hostway can provide healthcare IT systems that are compliant and protect electronic personal healthcare information (ePHI).
“HITRUST CSF is the gold standard, especially when migrating healthcare software applications to the cloud. In the face of mounting data breaches, companies handling sensitive data must remove all doubt by working with trusted cloud providers with deep experience in security protocols and regulatory compliance,” explained Hostway’s CEO and President, Emil Sayegh. “By abiding by the strictest compliance protocols such as HITRUST CSF, we can deliver on our promise to be the most trusted cloud provider for our customer’s mission-critical software applications.”Do you know of any other companies achieving industry standards?
