Traps HIPAA Compliance

Advanced Endpoint Protection for Increased Security and the Prevention of Threats

Healthcare organizations are increasingly under attack by cybercriminals, putting sensitive patient information, such as medications, diagnoses and Social Security numbers, at risk. The Anthem breach in early 2015 exposed the fact that, despite substantial investments made in securing their networks to be HIPAA compliant, healthcare providers are not fully protected against advanced cyberattacks.

This white paper explains how Palo Alto Networks advanced endpoint protection product, Traps, helps healthcare organizations comply with HIPAA regulations – primarily in the areas of malware and exploit prevention. Traps can also serve as a compensating control for unpatchable systems like Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and medical devices.
