Hello all,

 

I manage an IT company that specializes in Dental Technology.  We provide HIPAA compliant data security, and are a full service MSP in the Bay Area.

 

We recently have hired outside HIPAA compliance experts to come into our clients as a third party consultation, in order to address their clerical needs and policy & procedure booklets (we supply the HIPAA compliant solutions on the network, but don't address policies/procedures outside of the network). 

 

Recently, one of our offices proposed to us that we supply them a hardware firewall, which is something that we have always avoided by using Cisco businessclass router/firewalls.  We agree, for this particular office, that a hardware firewall should be in place, since it is one of our larger clients (40+ PC's).

 

We are looking for a firewall which will provide HIPAA-required audit trails of any breach attempt, malware infection, traffic data, and also to provide packet filtering.

 

Long story short - we are all totally new to firewalls, and could use any suggestions of companies and models to look into.

 

Thank you,

 

Dan

We primarily support Dental offices. I ALWAYS use Sonicwall: selections are based on their size and needs. Just go to this website and pick what best fits your needs:

We normally go with the TZ Series.

 

Also their AP's are pain in the buttox so for that reason for AP's I usually install these:

***Note***

My job has blocked Europe by the firewall which means I can't access this site from the office anymore. So I will barely be here if at all. In case you cared.  :smash:
