Hostway Announces Accreditation As A HIPAA-compliant Service Provider

08:03:18 - 20 February 2017

Independently audited and approved, provides assurance of signed Business Associate Agreement validation

ORLANDO, Fla., February 20, 2017 – Today at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference in Orlando, Hostway, with over 500,000 customers worldwide, announced a broad portfolio of managed solutions that are compliant with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH), with an accreditation for electronic protected health information (ePHI). Organizations that are required to comply with HIPAA and HITECH can confidently use the managed services of Hostway.


Hostway has received an attestation from external independent auditors.  The company will provide additional peace of mind via a signed Business Associate Agreement (BAA) validating that it will appropriately safeguard protected health information.


Hostway’s approach is comprehensive - assisting enterprises with full HIPAA/HITECH implementations and ongoing IT infrastructure management, along with 24×7 coverage from expert HIPAA analysts.


“The expansion of Hostway’s HIPAA offerings builds on the company’s commitment to offer trusted and secure cloud solutions that comply with the highest industry standards.  More than $58 million in fines have been levied for failures to properly protect patients’ information,” said Emil Sayegh, CEO of Hostway. “We’re providing those who require HIPAA compliance the highest levels of trust and the peace of mind they deserve. The BAAs we provide are backed by the extraordinary measures we take to deliver industry-leading compliance services.”


“We've been a happy Hostway customer for more than a decade. As our hosting demands have evolved, Hostway has always exceeded our expectations. And when our privacy and security requirements increased, Hostway was there to implement an excellent HIPAA-compliant hosting solution.” said Jesse Randall, Director of Infrastructure and Security at Ecteon, a leading SaaS provider for contract management software for the healthcare community.


The expansion of Hostway’s HIPAA offerings builds on the company’s commitment to offer trusted and secure cloud solutions that comply with the highest industry standards. To ensure security compliance, Hostway employs a range of technologies and services that include intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS), Virtual Private Network (VPN), multi-factor authentication, web application firewall (WAF), file integrity monitoring, security event log management, threat monitoring, threat response, and data encryption. 


With more than 19 years of hosting and cloud experience, the company delivers hosted services, public/private/hybrid clouds, along with managed services, on-boarding, consulting and professional services to many of the world’s most significant brands.
