hostway.com logo!Jun 12, 2018 - HITRUST CSF Certification validates Hostway's commitment to meeting key regulations and protecting sensitive information

AUSTIN, TX – JUNE 12, 2018 — Hostway, the world's most trusted managed compliant hosting provider, today announced that several of its applications* have earned HITRUST CSF® Certified status for information security. With this latest addition, the company is one of few hosting providers to have a full suite of compliance certifications and is able to provide healthcare IT systems with superior compliance and security in protecting electronic personal healthcare information (ePHI).

HITRUST CSF Certified status demonstrates that all the certified applications have met key regulations and industry-defined requirements and are appropriately managing risk. This achievement places Hostway in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.

"HITRUST has been working with the industry to ensure the appropriate information protection requirements are met when sensitive information is accessed or stored in a cloud environment. By taking the steps necessary to obtain HITRUST CSF Certified status, Hostway is distinguished as an organization that people can count on to keep their information safe," said Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer, HITRUST.

"HITRUST CSF is the gold standard, especially when migrating healthcare software applications to the cloud. In the face of mounting data breaches, companies handling sensitive data must remove all doubt by working with trusted cloud providers with deep experience in security protocols and regulatory compliance," said Emil Sayegh, CEO and president of Hostway. "By abiding by the strictest compliance protocols such as HITRUST CSF, we can deliver on our promise to be the most trusted cloud provider for our customer's mission-critical software applications."

"We have been with Hostway for more than five years and have been very pleased. As a contract management software company, it is imperative that we host our software in the most secure and robust environments," said Richard Eckerstrom, CEO and president of ECTEON. "Beyond HIPAA compliance, the HITRUST ongoing certification mandates constant updating and adherence, giving us even more confidence that we are offering our customers the utmost data protection available."
