Is a dedicated server required for HIPAA?

Does HIPAA require that I have a dedicated server?

No, there is no explicit requirement...in fact, the HIPAA law is 'technology neutral' in that it makes no specific requirements for the implementation of technical security, e.g. the level of encryption (128 bits or 256 bits), the encryption type (RSA, AES, etc.), the level of auditing, etc. The security restrictions we enforce ensures that your shared hosting account meets the Technical Safeguards of the HIPAA Security Rule. LuxSci's Premium Dedicated Servers offer a solution for clients interested in a dedicated hosting environment for their HIPAA compliant requirements.
