We have your solution to the new Homeland Security Act, as well as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley and GLBA regulations
With all of the new government regulations, such as HIPAA, GLBA and Sarbanes-Oxley, it is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to keep up with how to become compliant. When it comes to electronic data, we will take the burden off of your shoulders, and design a solution that will, not only make you compliant in that area of the regulations, but also be a 'hands off' solution that you will never have to be concerned with.
In the past, you had to, either hire a consulting company that would charge you way too much for a solution that is not secure enough and cost too much money; or have an internal IT person/staff, who is already overworked, come up with a solution which was, not only expensive in equipment, but also took so much of their time that it became hard for them to do their day to day activities.
In addition, doing it internally meant a non secured solution, as all the data had to be stored on tape or CD/DVD's where the data could be corrupted as it is written. To add to the problem, Hardware and software failures, viruses, fire, natural disasters, theft, or even human error can become a very expensive way of doing business. This is why we use your internet connection to send your data to our secured servers.
In order to be compliant with new regulations, such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, GLB, and the Homeland Security Act, companies have to backup their data offsite at least 10 miles away.
Following September 11, a draft interagency white paper produced by the SEC, the Federal Reserve, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the State of New York Banking Department proposed guidelines to "assure the resilience of critical US financial markets in the face of wide-scale, regional disruptions." Among its proposals was that certain crucial entities (major banks and securities firms) be required to establish off-site backup facilities located a minimum of 200-300 miles from the primary site from which they could restore their operations in less than a day with no loss of data. They revised it and changed it to 10 miles.
Because of Hurricane Katrina, the government is passing a law to again, extend that to 200 miles. Natural disaster, such as Hurricanes, Tornadoes, and Earthquakes, and other tragedies, such as fire, theft, and even more common, disgruntled employees, businesses are realizing fast that data is the one thing they cannot replace. 82% of all companies that loose all their data go out of business within 12 months of such an event.
