When it comes to HIPAA compliance and ensuring data security, it takes more than a basic understanding of network security and policies. Security policies and configurations, like the ones on firewall settings, must be updated and monitored regularly to ensure appropriate access controls are in place and to identify and respond to potential threats before any damage can be done. HIPAA Technical Safeguard section §164.312 outlines the standards that companies need to follow in order to ensure HIPAA compliance. With VM Racks’ Monitored Firewalls all policies and configurations are actively managed by a team of security experts.
