Overall Price

In terms of evaluating which HIPAA hosting solution best suits a company’s needs, many tend to look solely at the price and resources, while HIPAA Vault looks to provide consumers with an end-to-end solution for their HIPAA compliant web hosting needs. HIPAA Vault’s HIPAA compliant hosting service starts as low as $299 a month and is a completely managed solution to provide our customers with the highest level of support at an affordable price that is unmatched by any of our competitors. Many direct competitors will charge higher prices with fewer resources and services being offered. Armor, for instance, begins selling its HIPAA compliant plans at $1,500 a month, with many of the managed service features that come included with HIPAA Vault costing extra. Providing the necessary resources and managed services at an affordable price helps HIPAA Vault stand apart from other HIPAA Compliant Cloud Providers.

Managed Services

HIPAA Vault’s HIPAA compliant hosting service is a fully managed web hosting service that ensures not only compliance, but also data and information availability. By managing aspects such as logical access control, security policies and procedures, firewall changes, operating system patches, risk assessments, encryption, system back ups, and application deployments as part of the monthly service, HIPAA Vault has the ability to assist our customers with many issues and concerns that face HIPAA compliant web hosting. Managing these features for our customers allows for customers to store and access their data with peace of mind, knowing that if an issue were to arise that required immediate action and support is ready and available to assist with returning functionality to the systems in a timely manner.

Comparatively, Armor charges additional fees for many of these services on top of their already drastically higher monthly cost for a similar plan. Armor’s encryption service alone costs an additional $800 per month, while this service is included with all HIPAA Vault’s hosting services – from small to enterprise level. The primary benefit of HIPAA Vault’s managed services are that it provides our customers with an end-to-end solution and addresses some of their most important issues, data availability and compliance. With dedicated system administrators managing the key components of the HIPAA hosting service, customers can rest assured that they will be able to access their information whenever and wherever they need it and have a consistent service experience. HIPAA Vault also provides customers with 24/7 technical support to ensure that any issues that may arise are taken care of quickly and their servers remain readily available.

It is not only the initial price difference that sets HIPAA Vault apart from Armor, it is also the straightforward pricing and high level of technical service that make HIPAA Vault a better overall value when comparing HIPAA compliant web hosting providers. A higher level of overall service provided by us shows the true value of a managed service.
