EUGENE, Ore., Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IP Services' Information Technology Compliance and Managed Security Services help hospitals protect patient data by supporting proactive, enterprise-wide integrity verification and security incident and event management, while also helping to reduce IT maintenance time, effort and costs.
The solution's integrity verification engine for servers and network devices continuously detects in IT systems deviations from a "correct state." Automatic determination of incorrect system configurations and changes helps organizations detect potential security breaches and maintain business performance and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance. The integrity verification engine issues only actionable alerts so IT personnel are not disrupted by "noise." It can scan for security breaches up to several times a day — reducing mean time to detection from an industry average of nine months to the same day or less.
To ensure highly secure and high-availability systems, the solution's security incident and event management services provide event correlation, compliance reporting and recommended remediation steps, and ongoing systems management such as risk analysis and management. Its TotalControl™ system applies controls for managing IT services based on globally recognized best practice processes and methodologies: the IT Infrastructure Library and the VisibleOps Handbook, which IP Services executives authored based on expertise developed through participation in the IT Process Institute, of which IP Services is a founding member.
"IP Services' AHA Endorsed compliance and security services stand apart because they detect configuration changes that might suggest breaches, but also system vulnerabilities across the entire enterprise — a proactive approach to security," said Tim Steffl, chief operating & development officer, AHA Solutions. "Additionally, the services demonstrate strong results, both in their dramatic reduction in mean time to detection, and in the fact that IP Services clients remain uncompromised and safe."
