Healthcare Security

​Healthcare security is a tricky area.  With an ever-increasing threat of attacks, explosion of mobile devices, and evolving healthcare mandates (including HIPAA regulations and the HITECH Act), it’s challenging at best to balance security concerns with maintaining exemplary patient care.
 

 Why ePlus for Healthcare Security?

 

ePlus Healthcare SecurityePlus can help you navigate these factors and strengthen your security posture.  Through our dedicated technology healthcare practice and ePlus Security division, we have the industry knowledge and technical expertise to bring it all together, including a suite of security solutions:

Security Assessments – Obtain a solid understanding of your current security posture, where vulnerabilities exist in your environment, and what additional security controls are needed to address those vulnerabilities and meet your business and compliance requirements.
Security Consulting  – Many times, a good amount of your risk can be mitigated with updated administrative controls.  We can help you identify where and how these controls can be appropriately updated, and then implement them.
Email and Web Protection – Email and Web browsing are the most commonly used venues of attack.  Having the proper protection will significantly reduce your risk exposure.  These solutions are available as a cloud service, an on-premise solution, or a hybrid of both. 
Data Protection – HIPAA/HITECH mandates that only the appropriate people can access (view and/or edit) protected health information (PHI) data.  Proper encryption of your structured and unstructured data with the application of the proper access and usage controls is key.
Mobile Device Management – With the inevitable implementation of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), it is imperative that you have some control over how user-owned devices access your network resources, what sensitive information is stored on these devices, and how to respond if a user device is lost, stolen, or upgraded to a new device.
Identity Service Management – This will allow you to enforce access policies to data based on who is connecting, from what device, from where, and when.
Managed Network and Log Analytics Security Services –  When an event occurs, due to an attack or an innocent mistake, you need fast, accurate, and actionable information to respond accordingly and minimize your exposure.
