How much does system downtime cost your business?
You can lose sales to existing and new clients, employee productivity drops drastically, and you can be fined if you are in a regulated industry. If you are a health care provider, HIPPA stipulates fines up to $250,000 per incident where electronic health information is lost.
Recovering from a system outage involves costs for troubleshooting and remediation of the failed system, and there are costs for data reconstruction.
It adds up. Fast.
Today’s businesses are expected to be always on and always available, which is why antiquated data backup and disaster recovery solutions no longer meet their needs.
At Lattis we use the Axcient cloud platform. The Axcient cloud platform is built from the ground-up specifically to eliminate costly downtime, data loss and reputation damage for businesses. We allow businesses to store, protect and access all of their critical business data and applications, even in the event of a server failure, flood, hurricane or any other emergency. With this peace of mind, businesses are free to focus on business opportunities, not risks.
Unlike traditional backup solutions that require a time-consuming recovery process, Axcient eliminates the downtime-related loss of productivity, revenue and reputation that can cost even the smallest business more than $12,000 a day.

The Axcient platform is the easiest to use, most secure data backup solution for small and medium sized businesses – an exponential improvement over unreliable tape backup, antiquated disk solutions and standard cloud backup, which can take days to recover.

And since the Axcient cloud platform includes complete disaster recovery and business continuity protection, you can have peace of mind that your business information and systems will stay up-and-running at the speed of customer expectations.
HIPAA compliance can be confusing because the law covers a wide range of topics. While the first section defines how employees can keep their health insurance when they change jobs, the section of the law of greatest focus for Axcient partners establishes standards for the security and privacy of healthcare-related data. HIPAA explicitly states that healthcare providers are required to maintain rigorous standards for data integrity, access, and audit controls for Protected Health Information (PHI). Those standards are detailed in HIPAA’s Privacy and Security Rules.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule
HIPAA’s Privacy Rule restricts the use and disclosure of PHI. Under the law, organizations must provide secure and private storage of personal health information to guard against reasonably anticipated threats of hazards when data is in transit and during storage.
However, implementation and subsequent use of the Axcient solution does not require or involve the use or disclosure of PHI. In fact, original versions of documents, once backed-up, cannot be accessed except by authorized personnel. Axcient’s complete data protection platform also includes encryption in storage as well as during transmission for an added level of security.
The HIPAA Security Rule
HIPAA’s Security Rule sets forth administrative procedures, physical safeguards, and technical safeguards to protect access to PHI. This is where the Axcient solution can play an important role.
Axcient allows simple implementation of a data backup, business continuity, and disaster recovery plan. You can select and schedule what to backup and when to back it up. All data sent to our data center is transmitted and encrypted with a unique encryption key, the government standard for top-secret documents. Axcient’s SSAE 16 certified data center meets the highest industry security standards and contains world-class hardware. Data center access is strictly limited and enforced by use of CCTV, biometric technology, and 24/7 personnel. Finally, in the event of an emergency, your data will be fully loaded on the local device or – if you have the Axcient Cloud Continuity option – easily virtualized in the cloud for complete recovery and use of all your data and applications.
