MetaAccess can detect whether adequate user authentication and lock screen timeouts are set in order to minimize the risk of data theft and aid regulatory compliance.

Prevent Unsecured Devices from Accessing Your Cloud Applications

One of the stipulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is ensuring workstation security by setting strong user passwords and lock screen timeouts. HIPAA stipulates that appropriate measures must be taken when using workstations to ensure the confidentiality,integrity and availability of sensitive information, including protected health information Some of these measures necessitate a security policy wherein IT departments must:

  • Ensure that workstations are secured (screen lock or logout) prior to leaving area to prevent unauthorized access
  • Enable a password-protected screen saver with a short timeout period to ensure that workstations that were left unsecured will be protected

MetaAccess enables IT administrators to add a security rule in the organization's security policy to detect whether a password as well as a lock screen timeout have been set by the user.
