Recent data breaches in healthcare and other industries have hurt sales, increased operating costs and ruined executive careers from IT to the C-suite. But in healthcare, perhaps the greatest damage is to the long-term reputation (and long-term revenue potential) of the breached organization. Customers no longer trust it to safeguard their confidential healthcare and personal information, which, according to Reuters, is worth 10 to 20 times the value of a stolen credit card number.
This is why Boards and C-suites are demanding data protection that goes beyond compliance to true security. And they are tying pay and job security to achieving these data security objectives quickly.
Unfortunately, securing data in the healthcare environment is not simple.
Healthcare organizations typically have multiple kinds of data ranging from images and e-mails to medical records and payment information, stored in multiple devices, running on multiple operating systems and accessed by multiple users in multiple places. The move to digitize all medical records and information combined with reliance on sometimes older, legacy systems makes complying with HIPAA-HITECH and truly securing data even more challenging.
The problem seems intractable. CISOs at healthcare organizations have:
These CISOs need a truly secure solution they can standardize across their enterprises.
Vormetric Data Security Platform Delivers Data-at-Rest Security
to Encrypt Everything, Everywhere
The Vormetric Data Security Platform is the only solution with a single extensible framework for protecting both structured and unstructured data-at-rest under the diverse requirements of healthcare institutions across the broadest range of OS platforms, databases, cloud environments and big data implementations. The result is low total cost of ownership, efficient deployment and operation and little to no system degradation.
Vormetric security solutions are designed to help you comply with:
Vormetric can work with you to install its Data Security solutions in weeks rather than months. Vormetric’s solutions work with most major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX and Windows servers in physical, virtual, cloud and big data cardholder data environments (CDE).
Vormetric Data Security makes it simple to solve security and compliance concerns by simultaneously defending data in databases, files and big data nodes across public, private, hybrid clouds and traditional infrastructures. Central management of the entire data security platform makes it easy to extend data security protection and satisfy compliance requirements across the entire enterprise, growing as required, without adding new hardware or increasing operational burdens.
Customers typically report no perceptible impact to end-user experience when using Vormetric solutions. Vormetric performs encryption and decryption operations at the optimal location of the files system or volume manager taking advantage of hardware cryptographic acceleration, such as Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard-New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) and SPARC Niagara Crypto, to speed the encryption and decryption of data.
Collectively, this leads to the most cost-effective solution on the market.
