Part 2: Compliance Hosting
This is part 2 of our blog mini-series, “Why Is Atlantic.Net the Right Choice Over Other Cloud Providers?” This time, we’ll explore how Atlantic.Net is leagues ahead when it comes to compliance hosting. Throughout our 29 years in business, Atlantic.Net has helped countless businesses reach the required standards for different types of compliance hosting. Many of the goals required to achieve a compliant status are extremely difficult to achieve in-house for most IT teams, which means partnering with a Cloud Hosting Provider that specializes in this field is an important consideration.
What Do We Mean by Compliance Hosting?
Two main types of compliance impact our customers. The first is when government legislation imposes a legal requirement to reach a required level of standards for IT services to be authorized to operate in this sector. Healthcare and legal are two industries that are heavily regulated by the US Government.
The second type of compliance is a recommended compliance to meet and exceed industry standards. While there are no legal government requirements to become compliant with these types of standards, more often than not, these standards must be achieved to provide or access a specific IT service. The financial sector is one such industry, as banks and merchants require certain levels of security and protection to use their services.
What Compliance Hosting Does Atlantic.Net Provide?
There are three key industries that Atlantic.Net serves with Compliance hosting and solutions. These are:
- HIPAA-compliant hosting for the US healthcare industry
- Pharma and biotech solutions
- PCI-compliant hosting for anyone using payment cards
We will go into detail about these three specializations a little later, but it’s important for us to demonstrate our capabilities in these industries. We take our certifications and partnerships seriously and take pride in our accreditations from some of the biggest names in the industry.
