A-Lign Auditors Confirm Atlantic.Net Hosting Service is HIPAA-Compliant

Atlantic.Net has announced it has been verified by a third party as fully compliant with the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Rules and fully meets its responsibilities as a business associate of HIPAA-covered entities.

Atlantic.Net has developed a HIPAA-compliant hosting platform for the healthcare industry. The platform incorporates a range of technical safeguards to ensure that its customers’ data remains 100% secure at all times and protected against unauthorized access.

To ensure that all provisions of HIPAA had been satisfied, Atlantic.net engaged the third-party, full-service security, assurance, and compliance solutions firm A-lign to conduct a compliance audit to assess Atlantic.Net controls and safeguards against the HIPAA Security Rule.

“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, Partner, A-lign.

The Orlando-based hosting company has developed Windows and Linux cloud hosting packages specifically for healthcare providers. The service and its state of the art fast SSD cloud servers have been externally verified as compliant and are secured by a fully managed firewall, encrypted VPNs, and an intrusion detection system.

The latest confirmation of compliance confirms to healthcare organizations that the company is committed to security and ensuring its customers’ data remains 10% private and confidential and accessible at all times.

“Our HIPAA compliance certification by an independent third party auditor signifies our continued commitment to focus on providing affordable and reliable hosting solutions for the healthcare industry,” said Marty Puranik, President, CEO Atlantic.Net. “This goes hand in hand with our commitment to secure patients’ medical records backed by top-notch hosting operations.”
