Denver, CO – June 30, 2015 – ViaWest, Inc., a leading hybrid colocation provider in North America, announces its KINECTed PCI Compliant Cloud and KINECTed Health Cloud portfolios have achieved compliance environment audit renewals for the Payment Card Industry (PCI) regulation and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), respectively. These recent compliance renewals demonstrate ViaWest’s continued commitment to providing compliant and secure infrastructure and cloud solutions for companies in the financial, retail, healthcare and other security-minded industries.
With a dedicated compliance department, ViaWest is strongly positioned to maintain the governance and security controls its customers need to meet their compliance obligations. KINECTed PCI Compliant Cloud is a purpose-built, audit-ready cloud solution that was created for companies that accept, store, process or transmit credit card data. The service comes complete with a fully audited infrastructure and 24×7 customer support.
ViaWest’s KINECTed Health Cloud was designed to help companies that manage electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) meet both their compliance requirements and IT security needs. With secure infrastructure, KINECTed Health Cloud helps companies mitigate risks and become HIPAA audit ready. In addition to its compliance cloud products, ViaWest’s managed services security solutions provide customers with a security toolset and dedicated engineers to ensure the operational integrity of the systems are in compliance with the required controls. In response to customer demand, ViaWest introduced three security product bundles, packaging its most popular security products in a manner that is easy for customers to consume.
“Companies across all industries have to adhere to a wide variety of rules and compliance regulations, and now more than ever, given today’s business landscape rife with data breaches, security and compliance concerns are top of mind,” states Annalea Sharack, Vice President, Solutions Architecture and IT Security for ViaWest. “ViaWest is committed to helping our clients understand the complex compliance landscape, and through our PCI and HIPAA compliant product suites, we help save them time and money associated with audit requirements and preparation.”
In addition to its PCI and HIPAA compliant cloud products, ViaWest’s colocation offerings also feature SSAE 16 (SOC 1), SOC 2 and SOC 3 audit certifications for all of its data centers and PCI, HIPAA, NIST 800-53 and ITAR audit certifications for 15 data centers covering physical security, environmental security and information security policies.
