Compliance and managing regulatory changes is a top priority for Host.net customers, especially in the financial services, healthcare and retail industries. More and more organizations are forced to keep pace with increasing regulatory changes and mounting compliance costs.
The Host.net team has achieved renewal of all its compliance for Service Organization Control (SOC 2) and expanded its Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard 1-12 (DSS). Host.net data centers also have earned compliance for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). These compliance certifications demonstrate Host.net’s continued commitment to providing compliant and secure colocation and cloud solutions.
Host.net is able to expertly engage with companies and help them meet complex data privacy and data security standards.
- SOC 2 is designed to help organizations that operate information systems and provide information system services to other entities, build trust and confidence in their service delivery processes and controls.
- As a worldwide security standard, PCI DSS is a global data security standard that applies to all organizations that store, process or transmit cardholder data. Providing a framework for developing robust security processes, PCI DSS reduces vulnerabilities and protects cardholder data.
- HIPAA’s goal is protect the confidentiality and security of healthcare information and help the healthcare industry control administrative costs.
