In an industry where mistakes can prove fatal, it’s vital for healthcare providers to be able to keep every byte of data securely stored, replicated and easily accessible so they can provide the best possible care for patients, while meeting their legal requirements.

As the sheer volume of data escalates, storage requirements  for healthcare are straining physical and financial limits. To compound the problem, advances in digital imaging means critical digital files such as x-rays are rapidly increasing in file size. Critically, all data must be stored in a way that complies with HIPAA regulations, is completely secure, rigorously backed up and easily retrievable when required.

Traditional storage models of backing up and replicating data multiple times were never intended to deal with loads like these. That’s why Panzura’s global cloud file storage solution is specifically designed to make it fast, easy and economical to store and access the most sensitive of files in the cloud.

Resilience Against Ransomware

Panzura’s modern, resilient approach to ransomware protection means that ransomware attacks do not damage files in the Panzura global file system. Instead, attacks are shrugged off by quickly reverting back to previous data blocks, to make up uninfected files.

Accessing Sensitive Patient Data In Real Time

Large volumes of sensitive patient data need to be shared across hospitals and between office locations on a constant basis and it’s critical that doctors can access up-to-date patient information. With Panzura, even the most data-heavy patient files accessible the moment they’re needed, with a master file stored in the cloud and available at every local filer in your network.

Never Lose A File

Panzura’s constant data snapshots means restoring a file that’s accidentally been deleted, or become corrupted, is just a mouse click away. These automated snapshots remove the need for scheduled or manual backups, as each one is saved to the cloud and dispersed across every local filer.

Military Grade Security

The cloud used to be considered vulnerable when it came to security. With Panzura, security protections are as rigorous as they come. Whether in storage or in transit between local filers and cloud storage, data is encrypted and secured with FIPS 140-2 certified security to meet HIPAA requirements.

Reduced Overall Storage Requirements

To comply with HIPAA regulations, data storage, backup, protection and archiving  means traditional storage requirements of around 5x the size of your total data file. With Panzura and cloud storage, overall storage size can drop by up to 70%. 

One Place To Search For Any File

Panzura’s Data Services gives you a complete view over your entire cloud network. With one place to search for files as well as get analytics and insights into your network performance and access, we help you to be productive as well as keep your network safe.
