CREDANT for Healthcare
The Right Prescription for Endpoint Data Protection
Employees at hospitals and other healthcare facilities routinely access Protected Health Information (PHI). It’s critical that this data is protected by strong encryption and only made accessible to approved personnel.
In addition to a natural desire to protect PHI, healthcare organizations also face pressure from specific security requirements in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The regulation requires that data access control rules and unique user identifiers must be addressed through a combination of encryption, port, access and application controls, backed by strong access controls.
That’s why CREDANT Mobile Guardian provides a compliant-ready, proven data protection solution for PHI and HIPAA compliance. With CREDANT, healthcare organizations can ensure that all vulnerable endpoints such as desktops, laptops, smartphones and external media are protected from external and insider threats of a data breach. Multi-user machines are protected through data encryption, and all data is segmented by profile, providing highly granular access control. Even data taken home by physicians or other personnel is protected through endpoint data encryption, regardless of the device or its location. And if a device is lost or stolen, real-time audit trail reporting means you can provide the data on the device was encrypted.
With CREDANT Mobile Guardian Enterprise Edition you can rest assured the data is protected through endpoint encryption and you are HIPAA compliant.
