On-Demand Encryption From AlertBoot Saves Time And Lowers Total Cost For HIPAA Covered Entities And Business Associates
Date:8/27/2013

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

AlertBoot, a leading provider of mobile device management and full disk encryption managed services, is seeing surging enthusiasm for its on demand encryption solution from HIPAA covered entities and business associates – including law firms, accountancy firms, software programmers, and consultants.

"A common refrain is that 'HIPAA does not require encryption,'" noted Tim Maliyil, CEO and founder of AlertBoot. "However, you'll find plenty of lawyers on record who've stated that the federal government is doing its utmost to encourage the use of encryption software, including the assessment of heavy monetary penalties. Even the head of the OCR [Office for Civil Rights at the Health and Human Services Department] has been quoted as encouraging the use of encryption. The writing may not be in the HIPAA rules but it certainly is on the wall."

Disk encryption is not meant to prevent all ePHI data breaches; however, it is being promoted as one of the pillars in data security, and its use is strongly encouraged as evidenced by the OCR Director's words; the fines that can reach $1.5 million; and the Breach Notification Rule. This push for computer encryption is driving covered entities and their business associates to look for solutions that will protect them as well as protect patients' sensitive personal data.

AlertBoot's cloud-based solution offers a number of advantages to entities looking to comply with HIPAA data-at-rest encryption rules, including:

  • On-Demand Encryption: Encryption licenses can be purchased as needed, when needed. Small clinics, hospitals, and other entities are not saddled with unnecessary licenses because they've been forced to buy a preset block of licenses, nor do they wait for the software to arrive in the mail.
  • FIPS 140-2 Validated: HIPAA defers to NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) when it comes to defining what type of encryption to use. AlertBoot's FDE solution is FIPS 140-2 validated by NIST.
  • Integrated Reports for Audits and Monitoring: HIPAA not only requires that ePHI security solutions be used, proper documentation must also be in place (such as to prove that the loss of a laptop will not result in a data breach). AlertBoot's reports show when machines were encrypted, when they were last accessed, and other information necessary for making one's case.
  • No IT Department, No Problem: Encryption is started by clicking on an email link. Support via email and phone is available 24/7. Companies without dedicated IT personnel can easily protect their laptops; companies with IT departments can ease the workload on IT personnel.
  • Lowest Total Cost: Pricing includes the additional costs that are traditionally not shown on price quotes, such as the management servers and software required to coordinate FDE installation and management.
  • Fast deployment: As part of the "On-Demand Encryption" philosophy, clients can start securing laptops, smartphones, and tablets within minutes of signing up for service.

With less than 30 days remaining until compliance with the HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule, AlertBoot presents one of the best ways of protecting laptops and other devices that store ePHI.
