HIPAA security rules require the implementation of policies to safeguard the storage and transmission of electronic protected health information (ePHI).
But non-hardened servers (servers with a lower ability to resist vulnerabilities) are not sufficient to protect against today’s increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks. With VM Racks’ Server Hardening expertise, customers can be assured that HIPAA compliance policies are fully met, through an array of powerful tools including: data encryption, secure protocols, automated security patches, real-time updates, and advanced managed security.
