As businesses and their customers increasingly process, store and share sensitive data online, there is a growing need for secure hosting services that meet data security compliance standards. Layered Technologies recognizes this growing enterprise trend and is committed to evolving and improving our managed hosting services, which is why we have acquired GSI Hosting, a leading provider of compliance-oriented hosting services. The acquisition is part of our accelerating growth within the enterprise managed services sector, and the combination of Layered Tech’s on-demand and cloud computing infrastructure with GSI’s compliance-oriented capabilities will create a market-leading managed services portfolio for customers across the globe.
We’re excited to now serve the needs of security-driven organizations requiring PCI-DSS compliance, and we’re squarely focused on introducing additional compliance services, including healthcare HIPAA compliance.
There’s a compelling synergy between Layered Tech’s managed dedicated and cloud-based hosting solutions and GSI’s compliance capabilities, and this combination strengthens the service to existing customers of both companies, as well as creates new hosting options that will bring additional value to the market. In addition, by combining our resources with GSI, we can offer customers an even stronger level of technical support. We’re excited to welcome GSI’s talented team to Layered Tech and have Robin Greenhagen, GSI founder and CEO, join Layered Tech as CTO and Kelly Kephart, GSI COO, join as Chief Integration Officer.
Some of the strengths of the combined company include:
- Only provider able to support PCI compliance through all key audits
- PCI-compliant cloud offerings
- Compliance enabled in three flagship data centers initially, with compliance rollout in more of our data centers subsequently
- Fully managed, compliance-based hosting
- State-of-the-art customer portal, with extensive features for flexibility, control and ease of use
Here at Layered Tech, we’re looking forward to begin working with our new colleagues from GSI, merging our solutions portfolios, and begin offering our clients the next phase of secure managed hosting services.
