Anakam provides the VA a two-factor authentication solution delivered through multiple channels that will help achieve compliance with Federal laws, regulations, and guidelines (FISMA, OMB, and NIST) and healthcare (HIPAA and CCHIT) authentication standards for the protection of personally identifiable information and protected health information, it touts.
