Healthcare Industry Security

Protect your patients’ health information and cure chronic malware problems.

As the adoption and exchange of the electronic medical records (EMR) escalate, so too have the regulations and challenges related to securing electronic protected health information (ePHI) HIPAA and the more recent HITECH act define and strengthen the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information, and the Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information.

Traditional, reactive security approaches that worked 20 years ago cannot keep up with the volume and sophistication of today’s cyber threats. Modern malware attacks are highly customized and targeted at your organization, and they easily evade traditional signature-based security solutions.

The Bit9 Security Platform enables providers, insurers and other organizations mandated by ePHI, HIPAA and the HITECH act to close the gap in healthcare industry security that’s been created by reliance on ineffective blacklisting solutions and stopping malware for good. The Bit9 Security Platform allows only trusted software to execute on endpoints and servers. It also provides real-time visibility into what software is arriving and executing on every server, endpoint and fixed-function machine across your distributed enterprise. With Bit9, IT security professionals achieve greater visibility and compliance reporting, which reduces the risks of ePHI breaches and the associated financial penalties. In addition, tracking, auditing and standard reporting capabilities help demonstrate ongoing HIPAA/HITECH compliance.

Bit9’s Security Platform enables healthcare providers, insurers and other organizations to:

  • Secure endpoints and servers by preventing the execution of targeted attacks and malicious software that evades traditional blacklisting solutions
  • Control and audit all removable media and devices to safeguard ePHI and comply with HIPAA requirements
  • Improve IT systems performance by standardizing endpoint configurations
  • Monitor, audit and report on all software changes to demonstrate compliance
