RapidFire Tools Adds HIPAA Support to Audit Guru: Page 2 of 2

The new functionality augments earlier compliance automation capabilities for the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation. Additional modules for PCI DSS, ISO 27001, and other standards are in development By Rich Freeman

IT management vendor Kaseya Ltd., which acquired RapidFire Tools for an undisclosed sum last year, plans to add Audit Guru’s new HIPAA functionality to Kaseya Compliance Manager. That product, which the two companies developed collaboratively and shipped last September, is an optional, directly embedded component of Kaseya’s VSA remote monitoring and management solution heavily based on Audit Guru. Mittel declined to specify when its new HIPAA capabilities will reach market.

“We’re working on it now, he says.

Support for regulations beyond GDPR and HIPAA are in development as well. Modules for complying with the PCI DSS regulation, the NIST and ISO 27001 cybersecurity standards, and cyber-insurance requirements are all on the roadmap for 2019, Mittel says, with additional editions to follow. “This is really a platform for an MSP to get into compliance in general,” Mittel says of Audit Guru.

Kaseya Compliance Manager will acquire any new capabilities Audit Guru does shortly afterwards, he adds.

Kaseya isn’t the only managed services software maker with an eye on compliance management. Continuum, for example, added HIPAA compliance support to its security portfolio last September.
