New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
Hostway, a leading provider of cloud, managed and hybrid cloud services, announced today it is co-exhibiting with network security solutions firm StillSecure at the upcoming HIMSS13 Annual Conference and Exhibition conducted by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society. President Bill Clinton, Founder of The William J. Clinton Foundation and 42nd President of the United States of America is a keynote speaker at this important event along with several other noted individuals from academia and politics.
Hostway and StillSecure, who are currently entered into a Business Associate Agreement, will demo their recently launched HIPAA Essential solution at the show. HIPAA Essential is a comprehensive managed HIPAA HITECH compliant solution that is offered on Hostway’s FlexCloud private cloud and managed hosting environments. It features 24x7 security management and a formidable array of technology safeguards including intrusion detection and prevention, web application firewall, internal vulnerability scanning, and log management, among many others to help companies meet their HIPAA compliancy needs.
As one of the first hosted managed security solutions with built-in 3rd party auditing and approval, Hostway’s HIPAA Essential solution meets all specifications of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. Its reporting capabilities can be used to provide management and auditors with reassurances that compliance requirements are consistently being met.
"Hostway continues to place importance on the compliance needs of their customers with their third compliant-ready solution launch in the past year," said James Brown, CTO of StillSecure. "We are promoting HIPAA Essential together at the influential HIMSS conference in order to raise industry awareness of this managed security solution that includes auditing and approvals. It’s a fully managed solution that enables our clients to reduce the expense and time required to achieve compliance without any outside assistance."
In addition to HIPAA Essential, Hostway will also be promoting their compliant-ready Microsoft Hosted Exchange offering. The additional services included with this offering – including compliant archiving and retention, advanced email encryption and Active Directory synchronization – are designed to reduce the risk of email-related data breaches, facilitate audits in the event of company litigation, and protect organizations against email compliance penalties such as a recent $1.8 million fine imposed on the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services for a violation of HIPAA regulations.
“Compliance with HIPAA HITECH can be confusing. However, our compliant-ready infrastructure and email solutions give clients clarity regarding their IT-security requirements,” said Aaron Hollobaugh, VP of Marketing for Hostway. “Our partnership with StillSecure allows us to offer clients a powerful solution to prevent breaches affecting both in and out-bound data, helping to ensure the security of sensitive healthcare information.”
The companies will occupy booth number 8416 at the show which will be held March 3rd – 7th at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. Hostway will be offering special show offers on both solutions. Any show attendees who sign up for the HIPAA Essential package will receive a 30 day money-back guarantee on their compliance package. In addition, a free 60-day trial for the complete Hostway Hosted Exchange compliant-ready upgrade package is available to all show attendees.
