Liquid Web HIPAA Compliant Hosting

Protect Your Users With Liquid Web’s Paramount Peace of Mind

As Liquid Web has grown, we’ve come to host many enterprises that utilize and/or transfer highly confidential information. Often, the consequences of the loss or compromise of this data could cause irreparable damage to our clients’ reputations, if not even more serious legal penalties. Considering this, we have crafted the ideal plan to ensure that your data is secured by HIPAA compliance standards.

Liquid Web Features:

  • HIPAA Compliant Network Solutions
  • A Multitude of Physical Security Measures Beyond Those Required
  • Extensive Data Security Measures
  • High Availability Infrastructure
  • A 24/7/365 ON-SITE HIPAA Trained Staff

When choosing a host, it is important to consider the physical data center(s) where your information will be stored. If that data includes sensitive and/or confidential information, the importance of this decision is magnified considerably. All Liquid Web Data Centers are designed to provide you with the tools to ensure compliance physically, environmentally and across the entire network infrastructure in addition to around the clock HIPAA-trained Heroic Support® engineers available, on-site, whenever you need them.

Compliance with HIPAA requires organizations to implement safeguards and security standards when electronically storing and transmitting personal health information. HIPAA mandates standardized formats for all patient health, administrative and financial data. While Liquid Web does not offer full HIPAA compliance certification, we do offer separate services to ensure that technical controls and physical security policies are in place to ensure your server is HIPAA compliant. It is recommended that Liquid Web customers consult with a certified Auditor in order to ensure their application will be compliant. A Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is available upon request, which will require the acquisition of server configurations that meet minimum security requirements shown below:

Backup Management

Liquid Web Guardian is a fully managed robust backup solution that provides continuous data protection and off-site disaster recovery for Linux and Windows Dedicated Servers. Liquid Web Guardian uses replication and synchronization, with point-in-time snap shots, to provide up to the minute data protection of your complete server configuration. In the case of a catastrophic event, our Sonar® Monitoring Team recovers your exact server configuration to what it was several minutes before the event occurred. In other words, Liquid Web Guardian is a Backup solution that continuously captures your entire system configuration to an off-site facility which allows for up to the minute recovery of your information.

Features

  • Continuous Backups During normal host operation, the Liquid Web Guardian agent keeps a journal of disk changes. Incremental backups know what sectors on the disk have changed before the backup operation even starts. Guardian’s method is less resource intensive than traditional file-by-file or block-by-block backup methods.
  • Incremental Snapshots Our technology provides consistent point-in-time system-wide backup images.
  • Bare-Metal Disaster Recovery Restore servers directly from disk-based backup. Unlike traditional backup software, there is NO need to first partition your drive and install the operating system. Bare-Metal-Recovery greatly increases the speed of complete system recovery from a catastrophic failure.
  • High Performance, Low System Impact Sector based backups increase throughput and reduce overhead. Servers can be fully operational with minimal performance impact during backups. Backups can usually be performed at anytime, even on busy servers.
  • cPanel Administration Plug-in Our Managed Dedicated Server customers who are running Linux can take advantage of the Liquid Web Guardian cPanel Plug-in, accessible directly from your cPanel interface for easy management of your backups.
  • MySQL Database Backup Plug-in Continuous table level backup of MySql databases is available as an optional plugin.
  • Disk Safe Data Encryption available The Disk Safe feature allows us to safely store your backup data by encrypting it on our nodes. This feature can’t be disabled later, it has to be configured with a fresh backup snapshot. Disk Safe currently supports encryption using 128-bit RSA Keys and the Blowfish Cipher for symmetric encryption.
