HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that handles protected health information (PHI) must ensure that strict protocols and protective security measures are adhered to. But maintaining the HIPAA standards of security over electronic information can be difficult especially with outdated storage systems.
This is where the Storage Made Easy File Fabric can help. The File Fabric provides a unified view of all your cloud and on-premise storage with support for over 50+ cloud connectors. It enables a single view of all data and facilitates an audit of all activity that has happened across all data assets, inclusive of ‘audit watches’. Audit watches enable the monitoring of sensitive information in real time.
Instead of emailing attachments the SME file fabric enables users to send secure file links which can be password protected, limited on the amount of time they can be downloaded, or even time expired. Additionally all links can be revoked at any time by an Administrator.
There are also many more features which can help facilitate HIPPA compliance as part of a HIPPA implementation project.
Watch the below YouTube video to find out more ways the Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Fabric can help with complying to HIPAA standards.
