HIPAA-Compliant Caching and Delivery

You can configure the Fastly CDN service to cache and transmit protected health information (PHI) in keeping with Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) security requirements. Use the following features to ensure secure handling of cache data that contains PHI:

  • Configure frontend and backend TLS to encrypt transmitted data from your origin to your end users.

  • Add the beresp.hipaa variable to objects containing PHI to keep that data out of non-volatile disk storage at the edge.

Contact sales@fastly.com for more information on how to enable the beresp.hipaa feature for your account. For accounts that have this feature enabled, Fastly will enter into a HIPAA business associate agreement (BAA) as an addendum to our terms of service.
