For organizations needing the highest levels of performance, reliability and scalability in IT infrastructure, outsourcing to Latisys provides access to the latest hardware and software technologies, best-of-breed platform services and expert IT operations talent without incurring the capital expense to acquire or manage any of it.

Latisys serves customers across the full industrial spectrum:

Healthcare:

The Healthcare IT Challenge: Balancing Access with Security

Meaningful use of information technology—in particular, the growing adoption of electronic health records—holds the promise of helping healthcare organizations to contain costs, increase efficiency and improve outcomes. Outsourcing of IT infrastructure, in turn, is already proving its effectiveness in containing the cost and improving the quality of healthcare IT.

But even as they work to make information more accessible, healthcare providers’ top priority remains meeting their HIPAA compliance requirements to keep patients’ health information secure. After all, some of the largest information security breaches have occurred not within healthcare organizations, but at service providers to companies that process personal health information. That’s a big reason HIPAA requirements now extend to everyone in the information chain of custody.

All of which means the only way any healthcare provider can effectively outsource their IT services is to choose an infrastructure provider who takes HIPAA compliance as seriously as they do. That would be Latisys.

Latisys’ healthcare hosting solution combines people, processes and technology to increase the value and security of electronic personal health information. Only the Latisys healthcare solution provides:

  • Audited HIPAA-compliant facilities, certified to deliver the highest levels of security and reliability. And if you require a Business Associate Agreement (BAA), we can do that, too.
  • Extremely flexible & adaptable hybrid infrastructurecombining enterprise cloud, managed hosting and data center colocation—for tailoring solutions to your exact requirements.
  • Unmatched performance & scalability that allow you to grow as needs evolve.
  • IT facilities and services experts working as an extension of your team, accessible when you need them to optimize performance, maximize uptime and maintain security.

Validating the results of this investment, all of Latisys’ facilities have completed SSAE 16 (SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3) audits, certifying we have the physical security controls and policies in place to help you meet your regulatory or industry compliance requirements. In addition to HIPAA, Latisys’ policies and procedures have been audited for compliance with sections 9 (physical controls) and 12 (information security) of The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) 2.0 and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).

Of course, security is not the only reason to choose Latisys. Our resilient and fault-tolerant Tier III data centers feature redundant power, cooling and network connectivity - guaranteeing reliability and availability.

Education:

Keeping Education Technology Accessible, Affordable and Secure

Technology continues to transform the delivery and management of education. From pre-K through post-graduate, information technology is expanding the depth, breadth, quality and accessibility of content and courseware—promoting collaboration among students, faculty and researchers worldwide and simplifying registration, grading and every administrative function required of a well-run institution.

But even as end-user devices become more available and affordable, making the benefits of computer-aided learning even more accessible, the underlying IT infrastructure that makes it all possible is growing more complex, expensive and difficult to secure and manage. And while new systems and greener data centers could eventually reduce your IT costs, buying, building and maintaining such advanced facilities requires capital and resources that are best applied to solutions for containing the rising cost of education.

Fortunately, there is a way to take advantage of the latest hardware and software technologies, best-of-breed platform services and expert IT operations talent without incurring the capital expense to acquire or manage any of it.

Finance:

Performance, Reliability and Scale for Growing Financial Institutions

Financial institutions are more technology-dependent than ever. With that dependence comes risk, because as technology creates and enables new products, services, and channels of customer engagement, the cost impact of data breaches, system outages, interruptions or degradations can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars per incident.

And while new systems and facilities could help improve performance and manage change, you probably have better uses for your capital, IT resources and time than building and maintaining infrastructure on your own.

Fortunately, there is a way to take advantage of the latest hardware and software technologies, best-of-breed secure platform services and expert IT operations talent without incurring the capital cost to acquire or manage any of it.

Media & Marketing:

High Performance Infrastructure for High Traffic Content and Services

Whether your business is delivering content on the web, driving traffic to customer or partner sites and physical locations through email and digital marketing, or creating new and innovative ways to generate traffic, clicks, page views and sales, you are completely dependent on the performance and availability of your IT services and the infrastructure on which they run.

When customers respond to your campaigns, will your systems be responsive to them? Can you scale to handle seasonal peaks, viral success or projected growth? Or is sluggish performance already driving customers away? Does the big-data warehouse that provides your analytics have the storage capacity and processing power to crunch the numbers?

Of course, you could buy new IT infrastructure to solve these problems. However, the unpredictable nature of media and marketing makes it difficult to accurately forecast capacity or bandwidth requirements, budget the capital expenditure necessary to meet them or minimize the impact of obsolescence on the hardware you acquire. Plus, owning all of that IT infrastructure means maintaining a team of compute, network, storage and virtualization experts.

Fortunately, there is a way to take advantage of the latest hardware and software technologies, best-of-breed platform services and expert IT operations talent without incurring the capital expense to acquire or manage any of it.
