HIPAA Covered Entities Show Continued Interest in AlertBoot With One Week Left For Omnibus Final Rule Compliance

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 16, 2013

Approximately one week is left until the compliance date for the HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule, and AlertBoot is still seeing continued strong interest in its on-demand security services that combine mobile device management (MDM) and l aptop full disk encryption (FDE) for HIPAA covered entities and business associates. The cloud-based solution enables hospitals, clinics, and other medical organizations – and their partners, an addition to the Omnibus Rule that caught many by surprise – to easily secure their endpoint data devices with strong encryption like FIPS 140-2 validated AES-256 encryption.

"HIPAA has an unusual relationship with encryption software," noted Tim Maliyil, CEO and founder of AlertBoot. "On the one hand, it's not tagged as a requirement but as an addressable implementation specification. On the other hand, it is almost reckless not to use encryption under certain rules in HIPAA, and when it comes to laptops and other data storage devices, the HHS's fines generally tend to push covered entities towards using encryption."

The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has the power to assess monetary penalties of up to $1.5 million if covered entities and business associates are found noncompliant with HIPAA guidelines. Loss of reputation, filing of lawsuits (that cannot be summarily dismissed), increased insurance rates, and other additional factors are behind the strong demand behind data security software like AlertBoot encryption.

"Even though the September 23 deadline is looming close, AlertBoot is still receiving inquiries about its MDM and disk encryption solution. While this may be surprising to many, our experience over the past ten-plus years has shown that sometimes it really comes down to the line for many companies as they compare different solutions. The selection process is made difficult by complex technological and financial requirements and specifications. Many choose the AlertBoot solution for the easy implementation as well as transparent pricing – an all-inclusive annual price with no surprises – but the features on offer tilt the balance in our favor."

AlertBoot's security products for laptops, smartphones, and tablets offer many in-demand features, including:

  •     Remote wiping of data and disabling of devices
  •     Multiple user access of single endpoint devices
  •     Central management from any internet-connected device, including smartphones
  •     Device management regardless of target endpoint location
  •     Device agnostic (not tied to particular platforms, operating systems)
  •     Easy installation and deployment
  •     Easy compliance and independent, tamperproof reporting

The above and other important features make AlertBoot's data security offerings one of the best solutions for protecting electronic PHI on medical computer devices.
