Dizzion Confirms HIPAA/HITECH Compliance for Secure Virtual Desktops

80 Percent of mHealth Apps Vulnerable to HIPAA Violations and MoreDizzion, Inc., a full-service end user computing provider, announced Tuesday that it has been independently validated by cyber risk management advisors, Coalfire, who found that Dizzion’s control posture “is in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Breach Notification Rule.”

Dizzion said in a media release that having met HIPAA and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) requirements will assist healthcare organizations, covered entities and business associates in attaining and maintaining compliance with HIPAA and HITECH.

Dizzion’s HIPAA compliant virtual desktops provide access to applications and data, including protected health information (PHI), from any device, anywhere by securing the desktop experience in the cloud.

This type of availability is increasingly critical for successful mobile workforces, telemedicine, work at home programs and third-party collaboration. An increase in PHI breaches and evolving end user computing landscape are “driving the demand for security and compliance.”

“In today’s cyber threat landscape, properly securing PHI and remaining compliant should be a top priority for all covered entities and business associates,” said Steve Prather, CEO and Co-founder of Dizzion. “This can be a massive undertaking for many organizations and becomes increasingly complex when you consider disparate employee locations, device mobility and the use of third-party contractors. Our virtual desktops help to solve those challenges and address many of the related risks associated with endpoint devices like laptops, tablets and smartphones.”
