Webair listed in Gartner’s market guide for cloud service providers to healthcare delivery organizations


Webair has been identified as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner “Market Guide for Cloud Service Providers to Healthcare Delivery Organizations” report. Webair was named a Representative Vendor in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) / Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) category.

As healthcare providers accelerate their cloud adoption, security risks, dynamic HIPAA laws and legacy IT systems can present a significant barrier to ongoing success in the cloud. Gartner’s report helps healthcare organizations understand the current challenges, industry trends and notable players in the cloud market, offering current and relevant information, IT strategy recommendations and projections for the industry’s future.

According to the report, Gartner sees the cloud as becoming increasingly important to healthcare providers because of the pressures they will face to become more compliant and responsive to market changes while reducing or controlling costs.

Webair offers fully managed and HIPAA-HITECH compliant Private, Hybrid and Public Clouds for healthcare customers, backed by the industry’s most comprehensive SLAs. These solutions are furnished via white glove service and offer the security and agility of an on-premise service, delivered with the ease of a fully managed outsourced solution.

Commenting on the development, Michael C. Orza, President and CEO of Webair disclosed that many things make Webair’s healthcare cloud solutions unique. In addition to being one of the few Cloud Service Providers that signs comprehensive Business Associate Agreements, the main advantage for healthcare providers is that they don’t have to sacrifice security to benefit from the cloud.

By directly connecting to on-premise networks, Webair customers can consume SLA and contract-backed cloud solutions as if they were on-premise, deployed in a way that never touches the internet. They can also maintain control of sensitive data in-house, while expanding computing capacity, achieving scale and realizing cost savings, adds Orza.
