Robust defenses for the health sector

HIPAA penetration testing

Secure patient health data, comply with HIPAA Security Rule and show effective defenses to safeguard ePHI.

We provide healthcare companies, health insurance firms, and organizations that handle electronic health data and patient information, tailored cybersecurity assessments to test the security and resilience of the controls in place.

Improve your security controls and protect patient health data

Healthcare institutions are frequently targeted by hackers who seek to steal highly valuable healthcare records. Hence, these organizations need to follow the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) regulatory policy to ensure their network security and protect private patient information.

HIPAA compliance requires risk analysis on the technology handling patient health information (PHI or ePHI). Although HIPAA does not explicitly mandate penetration testing or vulnerability scanning as a strict requirement for compliance, recently, NIST issued a special recommendation for HIPAA suggesting penetration testing not only as a best practice but as an important step towards compliance and data security of patient information. 

Blaze’s pentest enables your organization to identify security vulnerabilities and risks and remediate and fix the issues to protect your network infrastructure, devices, and application platforms that create, store, process, and transmit ePHI healthcare records and patient data.

Healthcare data security

To help your organization ensure the privacy of individuals’ health information, our penetration test for HIPAA has a particular focus on discovering security vulnerabilities that can result in data breaches, violations of the HIPAA Security Rule, and improper exposure of patients’ protected health information (ePHI).

HIPAA compliance

Blaze’s pentesting services are based on methodologies such as OWASP Top 10, OWASP MASVS, OSSTMM, and PTES to ensure an in-depth review of the security controls of the platforms and systems in the scope of your audit.

Gain patient’s trust

Being a HIPAA compliant organization shows your customers – the patients – that you’re committed to sensitive data protection. This will earn you more of their trust and loyalty as they’ll value the security measures you have put in place to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their protected health information.

Web APP Pentest

Blaze’s web application and API penetration testing assessments are performed manually, augmented by automated scanners and custom tools. We go beyond common issues listed in OWASP Top 10 and cover business logic issues tailored to your system.

The application pentest enables your organization to identify security vulnerabilities in your web apps and back-end APIs and provides the necessary suggestions to remediate and fix the issues to improve your overall resilience against cyberattacks.

Mobile App Pentest

Penetration tests of mobile apps involve simulating the actions of a skilled attacker to identify vulnerabilities both in the application’s supporting infrastructure (back-end APIs and databases) and in the communication between the app and the server, performing an analysis of the application per se, along with its interaction with the mobile device.

Our team is well versed in penetration testing of Android and iOS applications. Blaze follows industry methodologies such as PTES, OSSTMM, and OWASP MASVS, to ensure an in-depth review of the security controls of your apps.

Internal Network Pentest

Once an attacker can enter your internal network, the business impact can be great. Often undetected, they can navigate your internal networks and gain unauthorized access to sensitive information and destroy internal systems in the process.

With our internal penetration tests, Blaze’s experts thoroughly scrutinize your internal network infrastructure to uncover gaps and weaknesses that could be exploited by an internal adversary.
