HIPAA / HITECH COMPLIANCE
Auto-Lock unattended workstations with proximity.
Users no longer have to lock their workstations when they leave. Token-based proximity authentication means auto-enforcement of password and workstation security policies. HIPAA Security Rule compliance is easiest with GateKeeper.
Defense-in-depth security architecture that works in complement to group policy. Finally, you can ensure that only authorized users have access to permissible information. GateKeeper helps healthcare clinics effectively protect PHI.
Working with the staff from Untethered Labs, Inc. is definitely the epitome of how a company should interact with their customers. In all of my interactions, I have sense that I am working with a partner rather than just a vendor. The support staff is always responsive, professional and courteous. The GateKeeper solution easily integrated into our office environment and secures all of our workstations seamlessly. The feature rich system provides the security and reporting that I require to monitor workstation access across our domain.

|Section||Key Activity||Performance Criteria||GateKeeper Solution|
|164.306(b)||Flexibility of Approach||(1) Covered entities and business associates may use any security measures that allow the covered entity or business associate to reasonably and appropriately implement the standards and implementation specifications as specified in this subpart.|
(2) In deciding which security measures to use, a covered entity or business associate must take into account the following factors:
(i) The size, complexity, and capabilities of the covered entity or business associate.
(ii) The covered entity's or the business associate's technical infrastructure, hardware, and software security capabilities.
(iii) The costs of security measures.
(iv) The probability and criticality of potential risks to electronic protected health information.
|GateKeeper increases the security and decreases the access complexity of the covered entity by providing an automatic mechanism for the locking of a workstation when a user is no longer in proximity. A user does not have to manually lock their workstation when they are no longer present. This security mechanism decreases the potential risks to ePHI.|
|164.308(a)(5)(ii)(C)||Security Awareness, Training, and Tools -- Log-in Monitoring||Procedures for monitoring log-in attempts and reporting discrepancies.||GateKeeper Enterprise provides auditing and monitoring of all login events.|

|164.312(a)(2)(iii)||Access Control -- Automatic Logoff||Implement electronic procedures that terminate an electronic session after a predetermined time of inactivity.||Combined with an organization’s group policy for automatic logoff, GateKeeper provides an additional layer of access control by automatically locking a workstation when a user is no longer in proximity. Unlike timeout policies, GateKeeper reacts instantly to a user leaving their terminal.|
|164.312(b)||Audit Controls||Implement hardware, software, and/or procedural mechanisms that record and examine activity in information systems that contain or use electronic protected health information.||GateKeeper audits user login activity within the enterprise platform at all times.|
