Get the Guide: Achieving HIPAA Compliance with GoAnywhere MFT


Are your file transfers HIPAA compliant? Is your healthcare organization at risk for fines, or worse - a data breach of sensitive patient information? Many health IT teams meet these questions with unease.

Fortunately, GoAnywhere is here to help.

HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) protects the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic health information. For any IT professional working in the healthcare industry—or for a company that does business with healthcare organizations—HIPAA is a concern. Compliance is strictly enforced, with penalties including substantial fines and, in rare cases, even prison sentences.

HIPAA is dedicated to protecting patient health information, but cybersecurity is only a portion of what the law covers and HIPAA’s security standards were not written for an IT audience. Avoiding specific technical language means the law changes with the times and allows organizations to adopt new technologies that help them meet HIPAA requirements. This approach provides flexibility, but it also makes HIPAA compliance challenging—IT professionals have to translate HIPAA into IT terms to determine what steps they need to take to become compliant.

Patient care involves constantly exchanging and updating electronic records, making file transfers a potential area of security vulnerability. GoAnywhere MFT protects valuable personal data while simplifying HIPAA compliance.

We’ve put together a guide that demonstrates how GoAnywhere MFT addresses several key HIPAA requirements. For example, GoAnywhere prevents unauthorized access by authenticating users and passwords with a variety of techniques including database authentication, LDAP, and Active Directory. Audit trails are generated to document if unauthorized attempts are made to alter or delete documents.
