Automate and simplify HIPAA compliance using DataSecurity Plus

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) mandate the standards companies need to follow to protect and maintain the confidentiality of personally identifiable health care information. An added benefit of compliance with HIPAA and HITECH, which is mandatory for all entities that transmit healthcare information, is that it allows you to proactively dodge both external threats and insider privilege abuse.

The DataSecurity Plus advantage


Audit and analyze file and folder access


Analyze files and disk space

The Access Audit report provides detailed information on the quintessential Four W's—who accessed what, when, and from where. This will help you keep track of all accesses and changes. The Access Analysis report provides a summary view of accesses and changes, which can help you detect access trends. The File Analysis report helps isolate files that are old, unused, unmodified, large, hidden, or non-business; making data cleanup easier. The Disk Analysis report provides visual insight into disk space usage and trends, facilitating optimization of disk space; it also reveals properties of files and folders.

Actively respond to security breaches


Audit access rights

Detect security breaches as and when they occur with alerts that get emailed instantly. Define threshold limits for mass access events such as malware attacks. Examine share and security permissions of files and folders and prevent access exploitation.

Minimize incident response times

Become proactive with real-time file and folder access and change auditing. Continuously monitor and get notified about critical activities.
