The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 required the Secretary of the USA Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop regulations protecting the privacy and security of certain health information. To fulfill this requirement, HHS published what are commonly known as the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the HIPAA Security Rule.
Runecast Analyzer automates the process of checking VMware vSphere and NSX for compliance against HIPAA standards – in total, 126 checks. Findings are mapped to each specific HIPAA rule ID, clearly showing both the control ID and the relevant VMware Audit Item detailed in the standard. Each finding is also mapped back to the affected objects, giving you details on how to manually audit and remediate any non-compliances.
With Runecast Analyzer, you get year-round, 24/7 visibility into your audit compliance posture. It allows you to get immediate visibility into risks and non-compliances inherent in your environment, allowing you to identify gaps between where you are and a fully compliant state, and also show as soon as any objects move out of compliance. Additionally, each finding details on how to manually audit and remediate any non-compliances.
The solution runs entirely on-premises, with no data leaving your control. All analysis takes place on the Runecast Analyzer appliance. Additionally, Runecast Analyzer provides the capability to automate the remediation of your vSphere environment against the PCI-DSS controls. Move to a more proactive way of handling your compliance requirements!
