Health Care Security Solutions
I've never found any other vulnerability management tool that is as comprehensive as QualysGuard. We never have encountered a situation in which a third-party audit found something QualysGuard didn't.

Securing health care IT systems is growing more demanding by the day. The security and privacy mandates of the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA); the new rules and regulations associated with the recent Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act; and an intricate maze of state and federal laws and regulations put considerable burden on security managers in any organizations that manages patient data.
And for health care providers, insurers, and others involved in the delivery and management of care, it's not enough to just be secure: their level of IT security needs to be verifiable to internal and external auditors. With the rapid move to Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and Electronic Health Records (EHRs) -- this is even more important as privacy and security demands rise.
For small and mid-sized providers, who are especially feeling the pinch of budget restraints and staff shortages, maintaining a secure and compliant IT infrastructure requires a strategic, automated approach to vulnerability, risk management, and compliance reporting. These organizations need to be able to conduct on-demand, accurate vulnerability assessments. They need to know that all of their networked devices are secure and prove their compliance.
