VIERA, Fla., Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Secured data center solutions provider TerraCom Direct has received its HIPAA security compliance certification.  The operation can provide the network and infrastructure security needed to protect patient information and meet HIPAA compliance standards.

TerraCom Direct has been independently audited against Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance requirements set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services and 100% complies with the HHS HIPAA standards related to facility controls and data protection.  "Utilizing a HIPAA compliant hosting provider that has already passed the independent HIPAA audit can save time and money for healthcare related operations by eliminating the need to audit their hosting vendor's practices in addition to their own business," said Rich Pilock, president of TerraCom Direct.

Using HIPAA compliant managed hosting providers benefits healthcare operators as it allows their IT team to focus on the applications directly related to their core business, not on the day-to-day details involved with server updates, data center infrastructure, network management and security which can more easily be outsourced to a trusted provider.  "If your business is storing patient information or health records in a way regulated by HIPAA, then the data center that hosts your storage infrastructure also needs to be HIPAA compliant.  TerraCom Direct is committed to meeting and maintaining these rigorous requirements so that we can better serve our clients in the healthcare industry," said Frank Huston, chief operating officer for TerraCom Direct.

TerraCom Direct's compliance credentials include SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2, ISAE 3402, PCI DSS, and it is FISMA ready. The firm is also in the process of receiving its ITAR and CJIS certifications.  "Our commitment to compliance minimizes our customers' risk of outsourcing IT infrastructure and maximizes their cost savings and efficiency," Pilock added.
