CaringBridge Chooses Layered Tech for PCI-Compliant Managed Hosting

February 23, 2012

Plano, Texas – Layered Technologies, Inc. (Layered Tech), a leading global provider of compliant hosting, managed dedicated hosting and cloud computing services, today announced that CaringBridge has chosen Layered Tech’s PCI-compliant managed hosting services and cloud platform to support its failover and disaster recovery needs. As a certified nonprofit organization, CaringBridge relies on the gifts of generous donors to provide free websites that connect people experiencing a health challenge with family and friends.

“With authors, visitors and donors in all 50 states and across more than 225 countries and territories, CaringBridge needed a reliable partner to help manage the complex regulatory-based IT environments required to securely handle online credit card donation transactions,” said Gary Ablan, CaringBridge Vice President of Technology. “CaringBridge chose Layered Tech because its PCI-compliant hosting solution and proactive service management address our mission-critical disaster recovery requirements and deliver the advanced security needed to ensure around-the-clock compliance.”

By leveraging Layered Tech’s PCI compliance expertise, CaringBridge can give donors the confidence to know that their contributions are securely received and processed, and CaringBridge’s IT staff is freed up to focus on core business initiatives because they’re not tasked with managing complex data security tasks.

“Layered Tech prides itself on fully managing compliance for our customers, where we not only manage their security and compliance requirements around the clock, but also work with their independent auditors to guarantee that CaringBridge passes all compliance requirements,” said Layered Tech President Brad Hokamp. “We are excited to deliver the security and compliance expertise and services that support CaringBridge and its efforts to make each health journey easier, and we look forward to a lasting relationship.”

Reinforcing its commitment to customer success, Layered Tech recently added Compliance Guaranteed to its service-level agreement (SLA) so that all Layered Tech compliance services, including PCI-DSS and HIPAA, are guaranteed to pass 100 percent of every audit or assessment sanctioned by regulatory entities. Compliance Guaranteed includes the proactive monitoring of compliant environments, giving customers the confidence to know that mission-critical and confidential data is protected in accordance with the most stringent of industry and regulatory standards.
