With digitization of the healthcare industry came rise in demand for hosting and cloud compliant with the industry’s stringent data privacy and security regulations, and many data center and cloud service providers have jumped on the opportunity to make compliance easier for prospective customers in healthcare and life sciences industries.
One of these providers, ByteGrid, has expanded its compliant cloud, colocation, and hosting offerings substantially, following acquisition of Sidus BioData, a hosting provider specializing in compliant services for those heavily regulated industries.
Today, ByteGrid unveiled a wide-ranging new portfolio of compliance delivered as a service together with colocation, managed hosting, and cloud hosting services across the company’s nine data centers.
The move is another step on a path ByteGrid, formerly a wholesale data center provider, has been on recently. The company has been diversifying the types of services it provides, adding managed services with the acquisition of NetRiver last year and compliant cloud and hosting with Sidus.
The provider is now promising on-demand compliance with regulations by the US Food and Drug Administration and its Chinese and European equivalents, as well as American healthcare data privacy and security regulations. The services include ongoing security and compliance monitoring and incident response and forensics.
ByteGrid’s nine data centers are located in six US markets, totaling about 750,000 square feet of data center space.
