Medical BYOD Security Audits Are Made Easier With AlertBoot's Latest Upgrade

HIPAA covered entities and business associates come in all sizes; regardless of size, however, all CEs and BAs are required to meet a standard when it comes to protecting PHI data, whether its' installing disk encryption on laptops or running a periodic audit to check on system integrity. This puts smaller entities at a disadvantage but AlertBoot's medical data security services can right the imbalance with its unique blend of easy-to-use, low-maintenance PHI disk encryption services with integrated customized reporting and password policy enforcement.

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) November 21, 2013

"Bring your own device" (BYOD) is making inroads into all types of organizations, and hospitals and other medical institutions are no exception to the trend. BYOD, however, can be a blessing in disguise, especially for organizations that need to meet strict data security protocols, including entities covered by HIPAA. AlertBoot, a leading provider of mobile device management (MDM) and managed full disk encryption services, is continually making breakthroughs in helping such organizations protect and secure data – all the while making life easier for IT administrators.

AlertBoot's latest offering is the Windows password policy enforcement tool, designed for organizations that require control over enduser password choices, including the ability to:

  • Disable automatic logons,
  • Establish minimum password lengths and specific character use, and
  • Set password expirations

The new password policy tool for full disk encryption complements AlertBoot's cloud-based MDM designed to enhance smartphone and tablet security. Observed Tim Maliyil, founder and CEO, "With AlertBoot, both laptops and smart devices can be managed and protected using the same console and user interface. This cuts down costs, the learning curve, auditing endpoints, and makes life easier for administrators."

Combined with the AlertBoot's customizable reports, auditing an organization's security status – either as a self-imposed monitoring program or as part of a periodic HHS audit – is easy and all-comprehensive, allowing AlertBoot clients to easily view and isolate devices that don't meet policy requirements.

Administrators can concentrate on running the backend as it was meant to be: with their attention focused on what matters, such as ensuring that no devices with PHI have slipped through, and thus ensuring successful audits, instead of devoting time and resources to non-operational details like figuring out license details.

The latest addition to AlertBoot's security suite, the password policy enforcement tool, is another way the company eases and simplifies administrators' tasks.
