ByteGrid, a U.S. provider of compliant data center services including colocation, managed hosting, and cloud hosting infrastructure services, has expanded the availability of its “highly compliant” Life and Health Science hosting platform to its Seattle, Chicago and Washington DC Metro data centers.
ByteGrid’s comprehensive Compliance-as-a-Service (CaaS) approach features specialized capabilities serving enterprises and government organizations in highly regulated industries, such as Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Medical Devices, and Healthcare. Now, the company has expanded the availability of its Compiance-as-a-Service platform to the ByteGrid data centers in Seattle, Chicago and Washington DC Metro area.
Unlike mainstream cloud hosting and IT infrastructure providers, ByteGrid’s data centers have been fully qualified against regulations such as US FDA, Chinese FDA, European GxP, and HIPAA/HITECH. ByteGrid has set itself apart by leveraging an “innovative” Quality Management System (QMS) comprised of over 50 compliance policies, standard operating procedures, and forms that fully trace to the regulations. This includes documented procedures, staff training records, system risk assessment, change control/validation programs that are led by an experienced quality team that is CISA and CRISC certified.
“ByteGrid’s U.S. expansion is driven by our focus on meeting the needs of our enterprise and government customers while addressing broader industry demands,” said Michael Duckett, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ByteGrid. “Comprehensive, continuous compliance has become a universal requirement across many verticals and industries and is a key component for ensuring sustained security and enhancing customer value.”
Plug and Play Compliance
In addition to supporting a wide variety of physical and logical security standards such as PCI, HIPAA via EHNAC, HITECH, FISMA, FERPA, FedRAMP, ISO 9001 and ISO 27001, ByteGrid participates in industry standards organizations such as the National Public Health Data Standards, ISACA, ASQ, ISPE and the AFCEA Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
“The harmonization of our Quality Management System (QMS), Data Center and Cloud qualification practices puts us in the very unique position of being able to serve and scale to customers at all ends of the Life and Health Science verticals,” said Jason Silva, ByteGrid’s Chief Technology Officer. “Our BioCloud and BioShare products offer massive scalability and cost reduction opportunities while simultaneously delivering plug and play compliance as a service. Whether you are a Biotech startup, a regional health center, a medical device manufacturer or a global pharmaceutical company we offer infrastructure and compliance solutions that meet your needs today and tomorrow.”
ByteGrid’s increasing expertise in compliance would further enable it to serve increasing interest in mitigating risk and securing critical applications, sensitive information and regulated data. ByteGrid CaaS solutions range from secured infrastructure, gap analysis, remediation, audit, ongoing security and compliance monitoring, incident response and forensics, with solutions engineered to meet customer’s exact specifications.
