Providing healthcare providers up-to-the-minute, actionable intelligence to identify and remediate suspicious user behaviors to prevent PHI breaches

Las Vegas (HIMSS’16) – March 1, 2016 –  FairWarning, Inc, a leading provider of solutions that deliver actionable application security intelligence and insights in healthcare, and Caradigm, the leader in enterprise population health and identity management, today announced that they have joined forces to provide healthcare providers real-time Patient Privacy Intelligence, to identify and remediate suspicious user behaviors, as they are happening. Health systems using Caradigm Provisioning Identity Management and Single-Sign-On and the FairWarning Patient Privacy Intelligence platform will be able to more rapidly alert on inappropriate access to systems containing protected health information and take actions to resolve them.

In today’s security environment with increasing external and internal threats, healthcare organizations need the ability to monitor, identify and stop potential breaches as quickly as possible. Relying on manual processes and retrospective reporting to identify and stop potential breaches stemming from improper access is less efficient and places healthcare organizations at greater risk for a security breach.

“We are pleased to partner with Caradigm to extend our real-time privacy and information security capabilities, as well expand the FairWarning Ready ecosystem of partners,” said Shane Whitlatch, Executive Vice President, FairWarning. “Escalating threats to PHI means every minute counts when it comes to identifying a potential breach. We believe healthcare vendors will increasingly compete on all aspects of information security, including their ability to support real-time security monitoring.  This new offering will enable our customers to enhance their overall security, privacy and compliance postures – allowing them to see who is accessing their PHI data, from where, with more context as it’s happening – and take the necessary steps to quickly remedy the situation.”

Caradigm Provisioning Identity Management and Single-Sign-On helps healthcare organizations minimize security and compliance risk through role-based management of user identities and is certified in the FairWarning Ready® for Identity Management program, creating an integrated solution that delivers the complete lifecycle of patient privacy protection. Healthcare organizations using Caradigm Provisioning with Single-Sign-On access and FairWarning Patient Privacy Monitoring are able to leverage real-time alerting to immediately identify suspicious user activities and take rapid action to remediate problems. The result is superior privacy monitoring and remediation that better protects against inadvertent, criminal and fraudulent misuse of protected health information (PHI).

“Caradigm’s collaboration and unique integration with FairWarning will give health systems the comprehensive tools they need to quickly pinpoint security issues and take steps to rectify them,” said Mark Pilarski, Vice President and General Manager of Caradigm’s IAM division. “With the combined strengths of each organization, we are able to help healthcare organizations reduce the time and effort it takes to discover, respond to and remediate a threat to PHI.”

FairWarning is the first-ever sponsor of the HIMSS Cybersecurity Command Center at FairWarning Booth #9908-27. Caradigm will be exhibiting at booth #5427.
