Protecting patient data with LeaseWeb

In secure a study released this week by the Ponemon Institute, a U.S. privacy research group, almost 90 percent of surveyed healthcare organizations reported they had at least one data breach involving patient data in the last two years; 45 percent reported more than five breaches.

Healthcare records are a prime target for hackers because they are such a rich source of information. Stolen credit card numbers expire quickly once the patterns of misuse are discovered. Personal identity information is far more persistent.

Software-as-a-Service: Agile, Innovative, Thriving

9215487_300x300

In the last few weeks, it seems that everyone has become convinced that the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) sector is in trouble, thanks to a sudden decline in market valuations of SaaS companies like LinkedIn, Workday and Salesforce.

Those concerns aren’t without merit: In one week, the combined stock values of those three companies plunged by $22 billion, and in the first 9 weeks of 2016, the Bessemer Venture Partners SaaS index (which contains 38 cloud-computing companies) lost a mind-boggling $125 billion in value.

It would be easy to draw the conclusion that the SaaS industry is in the middle of a decline towards obsolescence, but it’s important to remember that the recent struggles of the tech juggernauts represented on the NASDAQ exchange aren’t representative of the industry as a whole.

In fact, a deeper look at the SaaS market reveals a far more positive perspective on the future of the industry. We host a tremendous number of SaaS companies, providing them with the capabilities and infrastructure they need to scale in accordance with market realities, and their numbers are expanding more rapidly than ever before.

How to migrate 3000 servers in 3 nights

Have you seen our latest video? In late December last year, we finally completed the relocation into our new data center space in Northern Virginia. While prepping for the work, we decided to film the whole process, showing how we migrated 3000 servers in 3 days:


One of our company values is transparency, so there was no hesitation when we thought of allowing a crew to film a “behind-the-scenes” video of our relocation project. It would showcase our work processes, our technology, and most of all, the dedication of our team. It was exciting to capture on film the commitment of our engineers working on this project day and night, in perfect synergy to ensure a successful transition.

Many of you probably know about our Cloud services in the Netherlands. In fact, since our new platform was launched, we’ve seen thousands of customers using our Express Cloud to host their applications. I’ve talked to quite a few of them and when I ask what they would like us to add, the answer is often: “More PoPs to choose from”.

I’m proud to announce that today, we took the first step in our global expansion by launching the LeaseWeb Cloud platform in the U.S.!

Introducing Lawton Cheney

Who would have thought that the Dutch hosting company I work for in Europe would be who brought me home?

Hi, I’m Lawton Cheney and I am LeaseWeb USA’s new vice president of Business Development writing to you from our offices here in Manassas, Virginia – a short drive from Washington DC and from where I grew up in Maryland. As I began my commute to the office on my first day, I saw the neighborhood kids waiting at the same bus stop I used to go to.  To give you an idea of how long ago that is, the Washington Redskins were at the very top of pro football in those days.
