Egenera Enhances HIPAA Compliance for Xterity Wholesale Managed Cloud Offering

BOXBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2016) -  Egenera, the leading provider of cloud services and cloud and data center infrastructure management software, today announced that it has updated its compliance resources for the company's Xterity line of wholesale managed cloud services to assist enterprises in meeting the compliance and auditing requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Enterprises have born the responsibility for meeting regulations for various vertical markets such as healthcare. With the increasing adoption of enterprise cloud offerings, regulatory compliance has now become a shared operational concept. With Xterity's new resources, Egenera now enables partners to more easily achieve HIPAA compliance. Additionally, with full 24x7 support from systems experts, Egenera can assist in the reporting related to HIPAA assessments or audits.

Personal health information security is a serious responsibility and audits mandated by HIPAA requirements will begin later in 2016 to ensure health information is protected. Covered entities will require their partners to prove they can meet their responsibilities and even require partners enter into HIPAA Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) to ensure continued compliance with rules and regulations. Egenera is ready for this important role to bring the benefits and economies of cloud operations to the healthcare industry.

"Keeping pace with regulatory requirements is a critical aspect of cloud services. Xterity helps enterprises take advantage of the benefits of the cloud with the assurance that critical certifications, security processes and compliance requirements are in place," said Dan Busby, vice president of product management, Egenera. "Egenera has completed updates to HIPAA regulated standards and procedures so we can offer services that will enable customers to not only achieve, but prove, HIPAA compliance."

Egenera's Xterity Cloud Services deliver a full range of dedicated, managed, private and hybrid cloud services, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and Backup as a Service (BaaS), exclusively through the channel. With Xterity, resellers can quickly enter the cloud services market with no up-front capital or ongoing maintenance costs. Unlike reselling public cloud services, Xterity delivers the margins resellers need to develop a profitable cloud services business.
