Carpathia Hosting, the leading provider of enterprise managed hosting services for government agencies and businesses, continues to lead the industry in delivering compliant hosting solutions for commercial enterprise and federal agencies seeking to meet HIPAA, PCI, FISMA and DIACAP requirements and standards.
“In the past year, we’ve seen compliant hosting gain significant momentum. Now more than ever, both enterprise and federal customers are becoming more focused on finding the right hosting partner to help them achieve compliance,” said Peter Weber, CEO of Carpathia. “Our customers truly are driving our continued focus and innovation in the compliant hosting industry.”
Built to meet the needs of both commercial enterprises and federal agencies, Carpathia has the most comprehensive compliant hosting services portfolio in the industry. The full range of services includes:
- Compliant Colocation. Carpathia’s engineers work with customers to design solutions that meet physical, logical, environmental, geographic diversity and redundancy requirements and controls for their application infrastructure. Customers trust they can satisfy and maintain their compliance position when colocating their equipment in a Carpathia data center.
- Compliant Hosting. Carpathia’s Federally Compliant Application Platform (FCAP) provides a fully managed hosting environment designed to meet both industry and regulatory compliance requirements. FCAP was engineered using a superset of FISMA and DIACAP mandates with NIST 800.53 as a foundation and allows customers to elect additional managed services such as firewall, load balancing, storage, continuous monitoring and secure media handling.
- Compliant Cloud. Carpathia’s compliant cloud is a fully managed cloud computing platform enabling clients access to compute, storage and network resources. Engineered using a superset of FISMA and DIACAP mandates with NIST 800.53 as a foundation, compliant cloud is delivered as a community, private or hybrid cloud solution, giving customers have the flexibility to elect a delivery model that aligns with system compliance requirements.
- Certification & Accreditation Services (C&A). Carpathia Hosting provides C&A services that assist customers in meeting compliance with federal or industry compliance objectives. This suite of professional services offerings includes C&A packaging and submission, risk assessment, security engineering, continuous monitoring and secure media handling. Carpathia’s C&A services are designed to meet the multiple phases of managing a system’s compliance lifecycle and can map to federal, DoD and commercial compliance mandates including DIACAP, FISMA, NIST, OMB, Presidential Directives and others such as HIPAA, SOX and PCI.
“We’ve been very pleased with Carpathia’s understanding of our compliance requirements and commitment to meeting the needs of our customers, many of whom are operating in a highly regulated environment,” said Ronno Lee, vice president of Saba Cloud Operations and Strategy. As also announced today, Carpathia currently supports Saba’s US, Canadian and European operations, ensuring Saba meets the strict federal compliance requirements demanded by its government customers.
With an active Authority to Operate (ATO) for over 25 federal agencies – including DHS, FDIC, IRS, FEMA, NOAA, US Army, US Navy, Department of Defense, BTA, HUD, EPA, Department of Commerce, Department of Justice and Department of Labor – plus a proven track record delivering compliant solutions to commercial enterprises, Carpathia is one of the best positioned companies to serve the range of compliant infrastructure requirements.
“From our comprehensive compliant services portfolio, to our state-of-the-art compliant data centers, to our industry-leading team of certified professionals, Carpathia Hosting truly is driving innovation in the areas of security and compliance for our enterprise and federal customers,” said Weber.
Carpathia’s commitment to compliant hosting environments is most visible at its flagship security location, the Vault. Located in Northern Virginia, the Vault is the first commercial, Internet-capable data center built to stringent standards set by the Department of Defense and National Security Agency. The Vault provides 24x7x365 onsite technical support and monitoring and utilizes a defense-in-depth approach with hardened bunker style facilities, roving armed guards, multiple card key and biometric access control points through out the facility. Carpathia has a second compliant hosting facility in Phoenix, Ariz., as well as SAS70 Type II compliant facilities in Toronto, Canada and Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Lead by a team of CISSP and CAP certified professionals with over 9 years of experience delivering compliant services to commercial, federal and DoD customers, Carpathia’s industry-leading compliance policies and procedures ensure continuous compliance, not just compliance at initial deployment.
