Vertiscale to support ASCII IT community in selling to untapped healthcare market.

Austin, TX, August 21, 2015 --( Vertiscale, developer of the leading Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) solution for healthcare providers, today announced that it is now a preferred partner of The ASCII Group, a 2,000+ member business community of independent managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs) and IT solutions providers. As part of the alliance, Vertiscale will provide additional benefits and education for ASCII members interested in targeting the growing healthcare market.

Through its relationships with MSPs, Vertiscale delivers a way to reinvent healthcare IT that offers immediate value. Vertiscale’s easy-to-use and easy-to-manage WaaS offering gives healthcare providers secure, remote access to their applications, desktops and data from any device at any time with minimal upfront costs and pay-as-you-go-pricing.

“Healthcare is an exploding market for our membership, and we highly encourage our members to take advantage of our partnership with Vertiscale,” said Jerry Koutavas, president of The ASCII Group. “Welcoming technology innovators like Vertiscale to The ASCII Group gives our member community exposure to new products that can offer potential growth opportunities and address some of the critical IT needs facing healthcare providers now and in the future.”

Dependence on unsecured mobile devices and outdated computing infrastructures are exposing healthcare companies to a variety of violations to the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The average cost of a security breach in healthcare organizations exceeds $2.1 million. Vertiscale’s solution, industry insights and expertise will aid ASCII members in managing the HIPAA and security challenges facing their healthcare clients.

“Since partnering with ASCII, we’ve received valuable feedback and interest from members looking to address challenges with HIPAA regulations and compliance issues around Personal Health Information,” said Jon Senger, CTO of Vertiscale. “The ASCII Group delivers the key resources managed service providers need to be successful. We look forward to being active contributors to the group and using the knowledge we gain as part of this community to provide solutions that resonate with healthcare providers and make it easy for our MSP partners to win more business in this competitive and growing market.”
