Net Access, a provider of hybrid colocation, cloud hosting and connectivity solutions headquartered in Cedar Knolls, NJ, has announced the successful completion of a 3rd party audit certifying that their data centers and cloud hosting services comply with current federal and industry standards for protecting consumers’ private health information.
HIPAA and HITECH set standards to protect the privacy of electronic medical records, including guidelines that healthcare entities must follow to secure such information when it is processed, transmitted or stored in a data network.
The audit, which was conducted by BrightLine CPAs and Associates, Inc., a leading provider of attestation and compliance services, included in-depth review of Net Access‘ physical data center security management, IT security policies and procedures, data protection, network architecture, monitoring and other safeguards.
Upon completion of the audit, BrightLine found Net Access had controls in place to meet federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) administrative, technical and physical security rule safeguards and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) breach notification safeguards.
“Achieving these independent third party validations underscores our ongoing commitment to provide secure, reliable and compliant data center solutions for our customers, while maintaining the highest standards for the protection of their data,” said Raul Martynek, CEO of Net Access. “It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team that our facilities and cloud services meet the stringent HIPAA and HITECH security requirements set forth by the federal government.”
