ORLANDO, Fla. April 14, 2015 — Atlantic.Net announces its designation as HIPAA audited to give medical companies and patients protection through HIPAA Compliant Hosting solutions to better secure personal information in an environment built to safeguard ePHI (electronic protected health information.)
Helping clients to realize the importance of compliance to HIPAA regulations and protecting patient health information, Atlantic.Net offers HIPAA Compliant Hosting solutions that have been certified to meet the HIPAA Security Rule by an independent third party, A-lign, a full-service security, assurance and compliance solutions firm.
“Our audit finds Atlantic.Net is in full compliance with the relevant controls and meets all HIPAA compliance standards and requirements for physical and environmental controls, and the management oversight of the environment,” said Gene Geiger, a Partner at A-lign.
Colocation facilities are considered business associates under HIPAA and must implement the applicable safeguards to host their servers containing ePHI with a third party and are required to ensure that the company is HIPAA compliant.
