Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 05, 2011
Aurora, a leading IT company specializing in state-of-the-art security and compliance solutions for business critical applications, has introduced the Aurora SaaS Healthcare Solution, a powerful and low-cost method of desktop and laptop encryption designed specifically for the healthcare industry.
“Every type of business can be devastated by a data breach, but hospitals and healthcare facilities are particularly vulnerable,” said Philip de Souza, CEO of Aurora. “If patient records are compromised it can result in significant legal sanctions and a loss of public confidence.”
The Aurora SaaS Healthcare solution allows companies to lock down the entire contents of employee laptops, desktops, external drives and USB flash drives. Since all necessary equipment is hosted “virtually,” in the cloud, companies do not need servers and other expensive hardware on their premises, which saves space and reduces power bills.
“This is full disk encryption, that is in full compliance with HITECH and HIPAA, at a cost of less than 50 cents a day per employee,” de Souza said.
Aurora hosts the fully redundant, central management servers that handle logging and reporting of all encrypted devices to prove compliance. The company’s IT staff receive 24x7 access to a portal to view their user list, add/remove users, request updates and provide recovery tokens to their encrypted end users. This self-help portal helps reduce help desk calls.
Aurora also includes level II support that includes escalated support calls from customer IT staff. “We’re very proud of this offering and this opportunity to provide secure data protection to the healthcare industry,” De Souza said.
