ANN ARBOR – MDWise, an Indiana-based provider of healthcare company, has selected Online Tech as its data protection vendor, Online Tech announced Tuesday.
According to John Goerges, Director of IT at MDwise, they needed a new HIPAA compliant backup and disaster recovery solution that would allow them to grow their data footprint without increasing storage size and costs. Goerges found a solution with Online Tech’s Data Protection as a Service (OT DPaaS).
“We chose Online Tech because we’re a very data driven company, and we have a need for security and HIPAA compliancy–that was a big thing for us,” Goerges said. “We chose them because of the efficiency of their solutions, fully redundant data center, cost, and most importantly, their focus on compliance.”
OT DPaaS restores large files faster and more frequently than traditional backup, with no proprietary deduplication of data. In addition, clients can choose their own backup windows, and data is retrievable within hours rather than days. MDwise also paired Online Tech’s DPaaS with their Disaster Recovery as a Service solution, giving them a strong business continuity strategy.
Stringent laws in Indiana require all healthcare related information to be stored for at least seven years, and in some cases, 10 years. MDwise was looking for a solution that would retain and archive their data in a way that was effective, accessible, and compliant with federal HIPAA regulations.
Online Tech has been independently audited with 100% compliance of the Health and Human services HIPAA standards since 2011. Keeping with their culture of compliance, Online Tech also regularly reports against PCI DSS, SSAE16/SOC 1, and SOC 2 safeguards.
