Over 80 percent of hospitals and health plans use one of the healthcare industry’s cybersecurity frameworks to take the guesswork out of healthcare cybersecurity compliance. As of June 2017, Anthem, Humana, Highmark, UnitedHealth Group, and Health Care Service Corporation require their business associates to be certified against these cybersecurity frameworks.
The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform® (ASP) prevents the spread of breaches by delivering real-time application dependency mapping and micro-segmentation. Healthcare institutions use Illumio to protect critical applications that process electronic protected health information (ePHI) by disrupting the lateral movement of bad actors inside data centers and cloud environments.
Illumio’s real-time application dependency map, Illumination, shows you all the connections between system components that store or process ePHI. You can also monitor current and historic flows of ePHI across your network, identifying vulnerabilities and potential attack vectors.
Undiscovered compliance challenges, like a production server that handles ePHI communicating with a development server, can stall compliance and cost you money and time. Illumio Explorer lets you identify problems before the audit starts and enables you to speed the audit along once it starts.
Limit communications into, out of, and within your ePHI environment to only the minimum necessary communications that your systems require to function. Since Illumio ASP is software-based and does not depend on the network for segmentation, implementation is faster and micro-segmentation automatically adapts to changes in your environment to ensure security policies always remain in place.
Healthcare cybersecurity frameworks require encryption of any ePHI data transmitted across an open or untrusted network. This means any ePHI data that moves between data centers or into the cloud. Illumio SecureConnect offers one-click encryption that secures your ePHI data no matter where it is going or coming.
Speed up and simplify your audits with one-click reporting that avoids slow and costly firewall rule set review.
