HIPAA Compliance with CREDANT
Enforce HIPAA Encryption & Security Requirements
Hospitals, clinics, and other health-care organizations are privy to more of a person’s sensitive information than almost any other kind of organization. However, analysts report that over the last several years, data security breaches have exposed the names and information related to more than 1.5 million patients.
Patient Health Information Security In The Mobile Workplace
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 mandates that healthcare organizations must implement a number of rigorous technical safeguards to secure Patient Health Information (PHI).
Since 1996, changing technology – especially mobile computing technology – has made meeting HIPAA requirements a more complex undertaking. Securing patient data on desktops, laptops, notebooks, and smartphones and external storage devices like flash drives is especially important. These mobile devices must be fully protected by access control with unique user identification, audit control with reports of data usage and the consistent enforcement of several other HIPAA security policies.
Centrally-managed, data-focused endpoint security solutions—such as CREDANT Mobile Guardian—can ensure proper protection of PHI on mobile devices to help support HIPAA data security requirements.
CREDANT Enables Healthcare Organizations to:
- Encrypt and secure patient data across multiple, diverse platforms from a single console
- Create automatic audit trails that offer proof of end-to-end data security
