Centralized Firewall Management & Continuous Compliance
While facing a demanding audit schedule, Convey Health Solutions decided to adopt the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) Common Security Framework (CSF), a certifiable framework that provides organizations with a comprehensive, flexible, and efficient approach to regulatory compliance and risk management. Convey chose FireMon to help achieve HITRUST CSF as well as alleviate the effort and timeframe of compliance audits through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
Reduction in time to produce accurate compliance reports
Housing over 40 decentralized firewalls while relying on time-consuming and error-prone manual processes, Convey Health needed a solution to help ensure they maintained all their regulatory compliance requirements despite a grueling audit schedule.
The company sought to:
- Achieve HITRUST CSF certification and PCI-DSS compliance
- Conduct a full rule cleanup to remove redundant, overly permissive, and unused rules
- Automate change management processes, clean up rule bases, and improve reporting
- Eliminate error-prone and time-consuming manual processes
