Backup & Recovery for Healthcare

The Solution Overview

Healthcare institutions face a challenging set of requirements for data protection and business continuity. From the need to be up and running 24/7/365 to the ultra-proprietary content of the electronic health records (EHRs) they need to protect, healthcare institutions face a unique set of requirements for data protection and business continuity.

Unitrends approach to the healthcare market is different. We offer an All-in-One Backup and Continuity solution that can be custom configured for the specific needs of healthcare organizations. Unitrends products are designed to increase uptime and confidence in a world in which healthcare IT professionals must do more with less. Unitrends solutions deliver easy-to-use, easy-to-support products that provide everything needed for enterprise-grade backup and continuity.

Healthcare Requires the Highest Levels of Uptime

IT Pros in healthcare recognize that their digital assets need to be available all the time. They need to be up and running every day, all day. Healthcare requires instant recovery that can failover applications in literally seconds. This can include automated recovery testing, site and application failover, ransomware detection, and disaster recovery compliance, both locally and in a HIPAA-certified cloud.

With a need to be up and running no matter what, Unitrends provides an All-in-One Enterprise Backup and Continuity Solution to make sure the IT goals of your organization (RTOs/RPOs) are always met.

Healthcare Data is Highly Regulated

Regulatory demands for the healthcare industry are rigid and demanding. There’s no room for error with healthcare data. Unitrends Enterprise Plus editions of our backup and continuity appliances can provide documented test results for a HIPAA audit to prove the recoverability of patient’s health data. In addition, Unitrends appliances include the ability to encrypt targeted files so that they cannot be accessed illegally. Unitrends appliances also include built-in AES 256-bit encryption to protect healthcare data both at-rest and / or in-flight.

For automated assistance in achieving HIPAA compliance, Unitrends Compliance Manager initially scans the network and then asks questions to quickly determine if compliance requirements are being met. Recommendations are prioritized and documented on how to address identified issues. Unitrends Compliance Manager then produces all mandatory reports required to pass an audit.

Healthcare Must Control Their Data at All Times

Healthcare data is an ‘always on’ proposition with pressure on IT pros to increase uptime without increasing budget, technology departments are being asked to do more with less. Your systems have to stay up and running no matter what. Unitrends backup and business continuity solutions replicate data locally, to a controlled remote site or to a HIPAA-compliant cloud. From any of those locations data can be stored for long term retention and / or used for disaster recovery purposes.

Healthcare Supports Non-savvy Computer Users

“I accidentally deleted it.” “It’s gone.” “Where are those patient records?” Whatever the reason, Unitrends users can recover lost files and emails in less than 5 minutes, from login to full replication. With an intuitive user interface, even untrained IT staff can easily find individual files in backups. The process and speed is the same whether recovering individual files, folders or full data sets.

Unitrends All-in-One Enterprise Backup and Continuity solution helps IT easily support the non-savvy computer users within your organization.


Unitrends has been able to provide us with peace of mind that we will be able to restore data in case of emergency and enabled us to lower our RTO and RPO significantly. The appliances and services are stable and reliable. Our Unitrends appliance literally paid for itself after being able to restore the 2 million+ files affected by ransomware earlier this year.
