HIPAA Compliant Hosting

Liquid Web's hosting management and security take the headache out of HIPAA compliance

What is HIPAA Compliance?

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) requires businesses that process, store or transmit electronic protected health information (ePHI or PHI) to comply with strict administrative, physical and technical safeguards. Liquid Web offers managed dedicated, VPS, and cloud dedicated solutions compliant with HIPAA guidelines. A third-party audit confirms that Liquid Web is HITECH Certified.

Often, the consequences of the loss or compromise of protected health information could cause irreparable damage to a client's reputation, or even serious legal penalties. In order to ensure our clients are protected, we have crafted compliant hosting solutions, making sure technical controls, backup management, safeguards and physical security policies are in place, all to verify that your data is secured to industry standards.
