Flow-based StealthWatch for HIPAA Compliance

Lancope’s StealthWatch System unifies flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring to deliver visibility across physical and virtual networks. The system eliminates network blind spots and reduces total network and security management costs.

HIPAA requires that proper controls are put in place to ensure that healthcare transactions and administrative information systems protect individually identifiable electronic health information. And although there’s a low risk of fines associated with HIPAA non-compliance, there remains significant collateral risks such as civil liability and brand damage.

StealthWatch addresses HIPAA mandates in the following ways:

  • Provides accountability for healthcare employee by tracking their network activity (164.312 (a) (1) )
  • Provides a quick clue regarding unauthorized host access for rapid response to electronic protected health information (EPHI) access, alteration and/or destruction (164.312 (c) (1) and 164.308 (e) (1) )
  • Detects malicious and suspicious network activity and works in conjunction with third party devices to mitigate or remediate security policy violations (164.308 (a) (1) (i) )
  • Excels as an incident response tool and serves as a first responder technology that provides notification of potential issues
