Paris, January 23, 2019 – Scaleway, a European cloud computing company, has been certified as an accredited health data hosting services provider for its Paris-based datacenters, enabling it to meet all of the hosting needs of healthcare professionals and their patients.

Any hosting services provider in France that manages health data concerning a private individual must be approved by the Ministry of Health. This legal requirement is aimed at ensuring that people’s private lives and medical secrecy are strictly respected.
"This certification will enable us to offer to all types of medical ecosystem – notably healthcare professionals, insurers and biotech start-ups – a real technical and financial alternative by using our ultra-secure infrastructure", said Arnaud de Bermingham, Scaleway’s CEO.

The new certification fits with Scaleway's goal of offering a comprehensive ecosystem of products and services that all share a common denominator: reliability and quality. And it is also in line with the quality recognition strategy Scaleway has been implementing over the past few years by ensuring that its infrastructure complies with the highest standards and through obtaining quality certifications (ISO 27001, ISO 50001 and Tier III).

Security is more than just standards though, which is why, as well as providing anti-DDoS systems, for many years Scaleway has pioneered innovative security solutions, such as offering its users the possibility of storing their IT archives in DC4 – the only datacenter in France that is also a nuclear bunker. And Scaleway plans to create a "GOV" availability zone in DC4 for highly critical projects.

As a further demonstration of Scaleway's commitment to security it is a partner of the 2019 International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC 2019). Interested professionals are invited to visit us at stand F27 to talk with our team of experts, and to attend the conference on "Security's place in the DevOps equation" led by Chafik Belhaoues, Scaleway’s CTO, that will take place on Wednesday, January 23 at 1.30 p.m. in the Matisse Room.
