Secure Backup and HIPAA Compliance

Secure and HIPAA Compliant Backup

Those in the healthcare industry know what it’s like to have to meet stringent security requirements. The Healthcare Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates that appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards are in place to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and security of electronic protected health information – including protection from loss. HIPAA mandates both a data backup plan AND a disaster recovery (DR) plan. HIPAA requires an operations plan that lets critical processes continue in an emergency.

Spanning Backup for Office 365 is strong enough to meet those HIPAA standards. Spanning Backup for Office 365 has successfully completed the SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II audit process, a rigorous evaluation of operational and security controls. These certifications and security capabilities eliminate the need and overhead of outside compliance management software and come at no additional cost. Unitrends can even sign HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) to ensure your organization meets requirements for HIPAA compliant backups.
