Security and Compliance for Windows XP
Advanced Threat Endpoint Security for the Healthcare Industry
Protect your patients’ health information and protect yourself from cyber attacks.
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). The HIPAA and HITECH acts define and strengthen the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information, and the Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information. Under these acts any corporate entity, profit or non-profit, as well as associated business entity that works with or handles ePHI is subject to audits by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) within the department of Health and Human Services and can be held accountable for a data or system breach and penalized heavily for noncompliance.
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.
Solutions from Bit9 + Carbon Black enable providers, insurers, business associates, and other healthcare related organizations who require access and handle ePHI, or who must comply with HIPAA Security Rule and HIPAA Privacy Rule mandates enforced by the HITECH Act, to close the security gap and arm their endpoints, data-centers and fixed-function devices from attack.
The Bit9 + Carbon Black solution 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 + Carbon Black, IT security professionals achieve greater visibility, protection 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 + Carbon Black’s solution 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 such as anti-virus
- 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
- Rapidly detect and respond to attacks by maintaining a recorded history of digital events on every machine
