NEC completes HIPAA security audit


NEC Corporation of America has just completed an independent audit that complies with all HIPAA guidelines for security assessment.

According to the company, as a provider of managed services to customers in the healthcare industry that store or process electronic protected health information, NEC’s Availability and Performance Management (APM) platform may impact the security of its customers. As such, NEC is responsible for implementing a number of relevant HIPAA safeguards.

“The HIPAA security designation affirms NEC’s commitment to meet the highest industry standards for delivering and operating our managed services,” Vinod Muthuswamy, vice president of managed services at NEC said. “We work with our clients ensuring that a critical part of their business is safeguarded. Data protection, fault tolerance and RTO (Recovery Time Objective) are more critical than ever in this vertical. Healthcare providers can’t afford to lose a patient record, and any system downtime is costly. If systems are down, patients can’t receive care. NEC offers managed service solutions that address the needs of the healthcare profession and are affordable, easy to understand and maintain.”

Completion of the HIPAA certification was conducted by the independent regulatory compliance firm A-lign CPAs, of Tampa, FL.

Reported previously, NEC recently announced its newest integrated facial recognition product suite, called NeoFace.

In January, the company appointed Shinsuke Takahashi as president.
