Compliance is a primary consideration for the enterprise. From privacy to corporate governance to business practices and standards, regulation impacts so many aspects of corporate activity that it is a challenge for businesses just to keep up. Many organizations, such as those in the healthcare and financial sectors, are subject to so many types of regulation on so many levels, that selection of IT infrastructure – with both the flexibility and security to fully meet requirements – has become crucially important. As such, Array products and solutions are designed to both enable and maintain compliance across a broad range of industry and governmental regulations.
Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
Signed into law in 1996, HIPAA was intended to improve the interchange of electronic information amongst healthcare organizations for administrative and financial purposes – as well as provide stringent guidelines for protecting the security and confidentiality of this information. For countless healthcare providers, HIPAA has necessitated a thorough review of their IT infrastructure and security systems.
An ideal match for the healthcare industry, Array application, desktop and cloud service delivery solutions eliminate some of the biggest HIPAA headaches while ensuring that those who need information can get it, efficiently and securely. While other solutions are merely performance-oriented appliances with security features tacked on, Array solutions are built from the ground up with security in mind – connecting users and application and providing true end-to-end security.
Complying with HIPPA regulations doesn’t need to be a burden on your business. Array products and solutions meet HIPAA requirements in over a dozen different areas, including:
- Account type definition provides access control that guards data integrity and confidentiality – Section 142.308(a)
- Event-logging capabilities are used to document security incidents so that appropriate action may be taken – Section 142.308(a.9)
- Accelerated SSL provides high responsiveness, while securing messages traveling over the Internet – Section 142.308(c.1.iv) and Section 142.308(d.1.I.A.B)
