HIPAA, HITECH & HITRUST IT Security
Meet healthcare compliance requirements with privileged access management and vulnerability management solutions from BeyondTrust.
Simplifying HIPAA Compliance
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) has become a de facto standard for protecting the privacy and security of individually personally identifiable health information in the healthcare industry. Along with HITECH and HITRUST, the Security Rule within HIPAA deals specifically with Electronic Protected Health Information (EPHI). HIPAA lays out three types of security safeguards required for compliance: administrative, physical, and technical. As with any regulation, achieving and maintaining compliance can be a daunting, resource-draining, and expensive process. And, although no one vendor can help you achieve every part of HIPAA, BeyondTrust can help you simplify it as much as possible.
BeyondTrust PowerBroker Privileged Access Management and Retina Enterprise Vulnerability Management solutions help proactively eliminate data breaches from insider privilege abuse and external hacking attacks. With an integrated risk intelligence platform, BeyondTrust cybersecurity solutions reveal critical risks hidden within volumes data to prevent breaches, maintain HIPAA compliance, and ensure business continuity.
