Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) February 1, 2011
eProtex, a data security company specializing in identifying and mitigating the hidden risks of connected devices, today announced the release of ePShield, the first network counterintelligence solution for network security.
At ten times the speed and value of traditional intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), ePShield secures health IT networks and connected devices, delivering 100 percent visibility into information flowing between protected nodes. Meanwhile, its packet filtration, encryption analysis and verification mechanisms act as a “force field” around sensitive data, ensuring HIPAA compliance.
Designed for high-use, clinical imaging medical device networks, ePShield allows clinicians to access data faster without sacrificing image quality. Its toolkit includes analysis, compliance enforcement, packet filtration, firewall, router, end-to-end encryption and IDS/IPS capabilities for early and accurate detection and prevention of network threats and vulnerabilities.
At approximately 1/10 the cost of competing solutions, ePShield includes a unique team of "watchdogs" to follow a client's network traffic 24/7. "Our cross-functional team of IT and clinical engineering experts is uniquely equipped to discern how the network, individual medical devices and HIPAA requirements all impact one another," commented Earl Reber, Executive Director for eProtex. "This team monitors our client's network traffic to proactively and accurately predict and counter threats so clients don't have to figure things out on their own or pay added support fees.”
As healthcare standards evolve, so do the threats competing for the resources of healthcare organizations. While uncovering the right data security strategies can seem daunting, the real issue is the cost of remaining vulnerable to patient data breaches and impaired network performance.
Founded in 2009, eProtex is the nation’s first data security company specializing in the hidden risks of connected medical devices. As such, the company offers customized, all-inclusive solutions to fit healthcare providers’ unique needs and resources—from large, multi-location hospital networks to small, independent doctor offices and medical centers. Built by the healthcare community for the healthcare community, eProtex is a member of Ascension Health, the nation’s largest nonprofit healthcare system. [eProtex.com]
