Local Green House Data facility expands HIPAA compliant data center services to western facilities

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Local data center facility, Green House Data, announced earlier this week that its three Washington state data centers have passed their first annual compliance audits to meet HIPAA standards for informational controls, reporting, and security. “For industries with strong security or compliance concerns, Green House Data IT infrastructure now offers a solid option for hosting on the West Coast, as well as from our flagship in Cheyenne, Wyoming,” said Shawn Mills, CEO of Green House Data. HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, includes measures that health agencies must take to protect electronic health data, including a rigorous examination of physical security, administrative process, and technical safeguards. By passing this audit, Green House Data can now provide HIPAA compliant cloud and colocation in these Washington facilities. “The certification of our Washington data delivers on our goal of universal compliance across all of our locations and services,” said Shawn Mills, CEO of Green House Data. “We want companies of all industries to feel comfortable hosting their data and applications with us, whether they need something as specific a Business Associate Agreement for healthcare information or just peace of mind that their e-mail and cloud storage is secure.” Green House Data has data center facilities and cloud installations in Cheyenne, Wyo.; Portland, Ore.; Piscataway, N.J.; Orangeburg, N.Y.; and now Seattle, Everett, and Bellingham, Wash. The company is uniquely positioned to handle new, legacy, and location-based workloads, and offer disaster recovery services.
