Ensuring your company achieves compliance with standards such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) can be a real hassle if your network isn’t up to speed. Yet many enterprises continue to using questionable technology even though they could face serious fines by failing to fully comply with these standards. This is especially true given the increased adoption of electronic health records (EHRs). The good news is, there’s a simple solution that not only opens the door to an array of new networking options but also makes it easier than ever to achieve compliance with today’s standards.

Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) makes managing your connections a breeze and is inherently equipped to satisfy the requirements of HIPAA and PCI. If you’re not aware of all the ways SD-WAN can help your business maintain compliance with today’s standards, here are four of our favorites.


From simplifying EHRs and making it easier to recover from disasters to protecting payments and connecting dispersed workers, an SD-WAN solution can bring big benefits to your business that also align with today’s compliance standards. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that all SD-WAN providers are the same or that all flavors of SD-WAN offer HIPAA compliance. Only by choosing a trusted team of experts are you likely to meet — or exceed — the requirements spelled out in modern standards.

If you’re ready to quit worrying about compliance and start reaping the many benefits of SD-WAN, count on SimpleWAN’s engineers to design a custom, HIPAA-compliant solution for your unique situation.
