Vyatta Virtual Firewall Addresses HIPAA Compliance for Thrasys
Date:8/9/2011

BELMONT, Calif., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vyatta, the leader in software-based networking for physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures, today announced that the Vyatta virtual machine and virtual firewall solutions have been selected to provide HIPAA compliant network security for Thrasys, Inc., a provider of new generation health information technology to deploy scalable, collaborative healthcare networks that enable information sharing, care coordination and population risk management. Vyatta's unique approach to networking enables Thrasys to easily protect its customers' sensitive medical data with a stringent level of security that achieves HIPAA compliance.

"Vyatta provides Thrasys customers with a level of security that not only protects sensitive personal information, but also meets HIPAA compliance, a crucial requirement for our EHR solutions," said Randy Belknap, chief technology officer and vice president of engineering at Thrasys. "Our Vyatta virtual firewall also allows us to offer providers, patients and service centers easy access to on-demand applications – from anywhere, at any time."

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 appropriates $44,000 in annual payments to medical practices that adopt a certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. Thrasys depends on the Vyatta virtual firewall to deliver a secure, cloud-based coordinated care EHR system to healthcare providers, ensuring that Thrasys' customers qualify for stimulus funds. Thrasys front-ends a pool of servers in a public cloud where Vyatta is the primary router and firewall, while Vyatta virtual machines provide per-customer IPSec VPN access to secure customer data transmission from hospitals and physician groups.

Vyatta's application-centric approach to networking allows for complete migration of routing, firewall, VPN and IPS to virtual environments. Vyatta ensures that organizations requiring high-level network security, like Thrasys, can enforce the same compliance requirements of their physical network in next-generation virtual environments.

"HIPAA compliance can represent a very real obstacle for healthcare providers looking to move their medical records to virtual environments," said Tom McCafferty, vice president of marketing at Vyatta. "Vyatta's virtual firewall allows an organization like Thrasys to enjoy the business benefits of virtualization without compromising on data security."
