Find out how Portnox’s zero trust access control solution can help your organization better support and align with the many cybersecurity and data protection requirements for protected health information (PHI) laid out in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).


NAC meets HIPAA security standards in more ways than one.

Access Control

Portnox enables organizations to enforce access control policies by authenticating and authorizing users and devices before granting them access to the network. This helps ensure that only authorized individuals with a legitimate need can access PHI. Our NAC and TACACS+ solutions can verify user identities, enforce access control policies, and more.

Device Compliance

Enforce security policies on devices connecting to their network using Portnox’s cloud-native NAC by checking devices for up-to-date software patches, the presence of antivirus software, and more. Ensuring devices meet the required security standards, Portnox helps protect against potential vulnerabilities that could compromise PHI.

Endpoint Security

Portnox can easily integrate with Microsoft  mobile device management (MDM) solutions like Microsoft Intune and Jamf, as well as endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools to enable real-time monitoring and enforcement of security policies on endpoints, reducing the risk of data breaches and unauthorized access to PHI.

Network Segmentation

Portnox’s cloud-native zero trust NAC can facilitate network segmentation, which is an important security measure to isolate sensitive PHI from other parts of the network. By enforcing segmentation rules, Portnox can restrict access to specific segments based on user roles and privileges, reducing the attack surface and mitigating the potential impact of security incidents.

Monitoring & Logging

NAC and TACACS+ solutions often include monitoring and logging capabilities that allow organizations to track and audit network access activities. The Portnox Cloud delivers just that – helping you meet HIPAA security requirements for logging access to PHI, as well as providing visibility into potential security incidents or unauthorized access attempts.

Incident Response

The Portnox Cloud can aid in incident response efforts by providing real-time visibility into network access, device health, and user activities. In the event of a security incident or breach, Portnox’s cloud-native NAC solution can assist in isolating affected devices or users, limiting the damage, and facilitating investigations to determine the scope and impact of the incident.
