ViaWest Launches HIPAA Compliant Cloud

North American colocations services provider ViaWest unveiled a cloud offering purpose-built for the heavily regulated healthcare and life science sectors. The new KINECTed Health provides an audit-ready compliance-as-a-Service (CaaS) solution to meet the IT and compliance needs for businesses that handle electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI).

As healthcare regulations become more defined, security and compliance are increasing concerns for IT executives. The Ponemon Institute’s latest study finds that 94% of healthcare organizations surveyed have had at least one data breach in the past two years with a price tag between $10,000 and more than $1 million. Determining the cause of such breaches and the steps to address potential vulnerabilities are key areas of concern for IT organizations. Without physical security, secure infrastructure, power and HVAC redundancies and advanced IT engineering expertise, companies run the risk of non-compliance.

“In an effort to relieve the pressure for companies facing potential fines and compliance breaches, ViaWest can now immediately help companies to determine their organization’s risk, enforce further data privacy actions and establish security enforcement strategies that will help them meet their compliance goals,” said Jason Carolan, ViaWest CTO.

In partnership with Abnology, a leading IT services and integrated solutions provider focused on healthcare and life sciences, KINECTed Health Cloud leverages leading virtualization and security technologies with a platform that is designed to provide highly secure, partitioned environments that optimize data protection for customer compliant workloads, says the company. Abnology brings extensive experience within highly regulated IT functions and provides the expertise necessary to design, deliver, and manage compliant services and solutions.
