HIPAA Vault’s HIPAA Compliant sFTP Server is built with security in mind and is ideal for automated processes that include the transfer of electronically-protected health information (ePHI).
HIPAA Security Standard §164.306 requires covered entities and their business associates to ensure the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of ePHI, both at rest and in transmission. These HIPAA protections require data servers to be effectively configured and maintained to:
In addition to providing a secure connection for the data stream, HIPAA Vault’s Secure FTP Server provides a host of resources for protecting sensitive data and maintaining HIPAA compliance.
Several layers of protection are utilized, including Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, Vulnerability Scanning, Host Intrusion Detection, Password Management, and Advanced Encryption. In addition, our sFTP server is highly scalable, allowing you to add or subtract storage as needed.
HIPAA Vault offers two options for allowing access to the sFTP server:
1) Two Factor Authentication (2FA), which adds an extra layer of sign-on security for users; or,
2) Source IP Exclusion, in which scripting can be used to control which IP addresses are blocked from server access, and which are allowed.
Unlike traditional hosting companies, a HIPAA compliant host will provide you a signed, legal Business Associates Agreement (BAA), promising to protect your ePHI in accordance with HIPAA regulations. HIPAA Vault’s compliant infrastructure preserves the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information (ePHI), both in-transit and at-rest. Our advanced, layered security includes: access controls to your environment (unique permissions, strong passwords, and multi-factor authentication), specially configured firewalls, data encryption, operating system security, malware prevention, segregated web and database servers, and our renowned 24/7/365 technical support.
Despite a persistent belief that private data centers are more secure than public ones, the reality is that the public cloud is actually far more secure, since it is provisioned with cutting-edge technology and enhanced security controls. Layered over with HIPAA Vault’s extensive security controls – including 24/7 monitoring and mitigation of vulnerabilities – and years of HIPAA compliance expertise, our cloud far exceeds traditional private cloud environments.
Yes. Among the cloud’s many benefits are high data availability and rapid elasticity (scalability), as well as an opportunity to streamline costs through virtualized environments. This reduces the current tools and solutions that require your investment and support.
HIPAA Vault’s hosting provides fully-managed security, with 24/7/365 dedicated technical support and over 90% first-call resolution. Fully-managed means we take care of everything from server security patching and upgrades, to applying multiple layers of cutting-edge security technologies (see HIPAA compliant hosting, above). Our technical support team is unmatched in providing personalized service, and we do it all at the lowest pricing available.
HIPAA Vault ensures your system will be available 24x7x365, and your data accessible 99.99% of the time. Our hosting is verified by independent, third-party auditors and cloud experts who perform extensive examinations of controls in data centers, infrastructure, and operations.
Regular backups – or replicating your data to a geographically distinct location – is accepted practice in order to maintain high data availability. This way, even if a fire or flood were to destroy the data center, we can restore your system with a backup of your data. HIPAA Vault also utilizes system-based snapshots to capture the most recent configuration and disk data that flows through your servers.
Absolutely, we can provide you with a custom proposal that fits your needs.
Sure, but we’ll need to know the server resources required. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss!

They perform for us just like they were on our payroll – which is what you want and need from your frontline protection against the bad actors out there.

"I am really pleased with HIPAA Vault! The HIPAA Vault - secure email is essential for my job as a mental health therapist and I think the structure is clean and easy to use. The sales and customer support teams are also incredible. I never felt pressured to purchase the service from sales, but rather I was offered appropriate information so I could make a decision that best fit the needs of my practice. Regarding customer service, when I sought clarification (many times!) over a particular concern I had, they came to my rescue by patiently explaining both what caused the problem and offered appropriate solutions with an impressive response time. I highly recommend HIPAA Vault for HIPAA-compliant email service!"
