Your Prescription for a Healthy Backup Business

Healthcare organizations typically face budget constraints that limit their IT resources. Remedy the situation with cloud-based backup and data recovery services that comply with their regulatory realities.

Organizations that store patient medical records, social insurance numbers or home address information are subject to government regulations that add extra requirements for secure cloud backup and data recovery deployment as part of a disaster recovery plan.

In the U.S., the core piece of legislation is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which was enacted with a goal to support the protection of Personally-Identifiable Health Information (PHI). In Canada, Personally-Identifiable Information (PII) is protected under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).

Individuals and enterprises, such as doctors and other healthcare professionals, hospitals, pharmacies, medical billing services, healthcare plans, HMOs, and their business associates, such as their accountants or attorneys, all play roles in making sure PHI and PII is 100% safeguarded.

BackupSilo's secure cloud backup and data recovery services for healthcare powered by Veeam ensure patient privacy and meet all regulatory requirements.

High Standard of Care for Patient Data

BackupSilo offers healthcare and associated organizations enterprise-class data backup and recovery services leveraging the power of Veeam Cloud Connect and the Veeam Availability Suite.

Our secure cloud backup and data recovery platform, used in conjunction with IT industry best-practices, protects sensitive patient information by getting your data offsite, offline, and out-of-reach. Storing backup data in our secure, state-of-the-art vaulting facilities protects it against threats including natural disasters, human error, or sabotage. Our solution eliminates unnecessary exposure of information, while ensuring data integrity and privacy.

Encrypting backup data containing sensitive patient information is an advisable precaution to prevent unauthorized access. For these protection requirements, BackupSilo has unmatched capabilities, including 256-bit AES encryption of all data “in transit” or “at rest” in storage. If data residency is a requirement, we have you covered there as well since all data is stored in our world-class Tier 3 data centres in Canada. Our backup and storage vault locations also come with rigid and regularly tested physical security and protocols, nearly impossible to replicate at in-house or office facilities.

BackupSilo’s also safeguards distributed data to fully meet compliance requirements that include remote data usage – which today is widespread. Our encryption and Lost Data Destruction (LDD) capabilities can automatically delete and overwrite data that administrators specify. It can prevent potentially disastrous and embarrassing situations from a lost or stolen notebook computer, password tampering, or other forms of unauthorized access. In the event of small-scale data losses, users can quickly recover their data over the Internet.
