Extreme Networks introduces Information Governance Engine compliance solution


Fully-automated tool scores and trends HIPAA and PCI network compliance

Extreme Networks has introduced the Information Governance Engine, enabling chief information security officers (CISOs) and chief information officers (CIOs) to establish and maintain a clinical baseline that demonstrates compliance with standards for their mission-critical networks.

This addition to Extreme’s product portfolio highlights the company’s focus on the technology and security needs of today’s healthcare industry and other verticals that are challenged by the increasing use of mobile and IoT devices to improve patient care.

That is to say, the engine replaces the current manual and error-prone network compliance process in many healthcare and retail organisations with a fully-automated and repeatable solution capable of completing an assessment in minutes.
