HIPAA Secure Offsite Backup

Under HIPAA you are obligated to ensure that certain safeguards are in place for the protection of your ePHI. One such safeguard is a secure offsite backup. While there are many commercial offsite backup services, which meet the minimum requirements for security outlined under HIPAA, many of those vendors will not sign a BAA (Business Associate Agreement), which is required under HIPAA for ANY vendor who has access to your ePHI.

At Black Bear Technology, we offer a HIPAA secure offsite backup. We take the safety and security of your data as seriously as you do, therfore we have we have developed our very own proprietary backup software so as to avoid potential vulnerabilities present in commercial backup software. We also sign BAA's for our backup service. In addition to a BAA, our encrypted offsite backup exceeds, by far, the requirements outlined under HIPAA for the protection of your ePHI. While HIPAA requires at least 128 bit encryption of your data, our custom backup software encrypts your data using AES 256 bit while on your server, double the encryption strength required by HIPAA. The encrypted data is then transmitted to our secure server, via an encrypted SSL (Secure Socket Layer) tunnel and is then stored on our server hard drives which are further encrypted using AES 256 bit encryption. This combination leaves you with 256 bit encrypted ePHI inside of a 256 bit encrypted drive and transmitted through an encrypted tunnel between your server and ours. With this combination we guarantee that your ePHI will be available in the event of a disaster, but will never be viewed by anyone outside of your practice.

Please call us for pricing regarding out HIPAA secure offsite backup service. Pricing varies based on the amount of storage required on our server.
