The decision to spend is hasty and leads to bad decisions. This is especially true when it comes to data security because there isn't much time for testing or to run a proper pilot project.
Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
As medical organizations face the end of the fiscal year, AlertBoot – a leading provider of mobile device management and managed full disk encryption services – is being contacted by many who are looking to spend their remaining budgets on overdue projects that were not funded appropriately or require an update, including HIPAA compliance measures that fell short.
"Most organizations operate from a fixed budget that expires at year's end. Facing uncertainty at the beginning of the year, many over-budget to create a fiscal cushion. This leads to instances where money is left over as the end of the year approaches, leading to a rush to spend these funds," said Tim Maliyil, CEO and founder of AlertBoot. "Unfortunately, the decision to spend is hasty and leads to bad decisions. This is especially true when it comes to data security because there isn't much time for testing or to run a proper pilot project."
Selecting a data security solution like laptop or smartphone encryption and management takes a while to test because deployment and installation can be complex. Most solutions also require setting up a central management server, which not only adds to the complexity but can also make the project more expensive than expected.
These traditional concerns, however, are not an issue with AlertBoot, and have not stopped HIPAA covered entities and business associates from approaching the company. Many are still struggling to comply with the numberous facets of the HIPAA Final Omnibus Rule, including the need to secure smartphones in medical BYOD programs. More traditional IT concerns, like medical laptop encryption have also come up for discussion.
Since AlertBoot's managed endpoint security services are completely web-based, and because licenses can be obtained on an as-needed basis, companies are finding it easy to test out the effectiveness of the solution without a significant budget or any time lags. Logistical and operational problems like setting up a separate management server or dedicating space in a data center become irrelevant. Financial obstacles like appropriating funds for a sizable block of licenses that will mostly go unused also become insignificant.
The flexibility afforded by AlertBoot has resulted in a number of recent trials, and thousands of successful customer deployments over the past several months demonstrates AlertBoot’s ongoing leadership in providing disk encryption and mobile device security as a managed service.
