RALEIGH, NC (PRWEB) March 16, 2015
Hackers are increasingly targeting companies and healthcare providers that manage Protected Health Information because of the high market value of stolen health information. As part of service to its clients, Total HIPAA (http://www.TotalHIPAA.com) identifies and qualifies solutions that will help clients protect their electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) from hackers as well as meet HIPAA requirements.
With this objective in mind, Total HIPAA is recommending Internet security specialist Secure Designs for their firewall protection package. It is ideal for small and midsize companies. This managed Internet security service prevents external intruders from gaining access to business’s sensitive data. Encrypting emails with ePHI is also required by HIPAA. To meet this need, Secure Designs offers centralized, HIPAA compliant email encryption powered by Zix Corp.
One of the most difficult processes in protecting a company that handles electronic Protected Health Information is addressing technical issues. Large companies have either internal IT resources or large vendors that provide guidance. Small and medium size companies often cannot find solutions that are scaled to their network or budget. Secure Designs and Total HIPAA Compliance have joined forces because both are focused on the small and medium size markets. Secure Designs has designated companies of 3 to 100 employees as its primary target. They currently manage over 7,000 locations in all 50 states and 5 countries.
“By turning to Secure Designs for help to establish firewalls, healthcare providers as well as businesses, required by HIPAA to protect health information, will get the help they need,” commented Jason Karn, Director of IT and Education, Total HIPAA Compliance. “Managed Internet Security Solutions are complicated and usually focused on meeting the needs of the large enterprise. Secure Designs offers a cost-effective solution that targets small organizations,“ Karn added. “Also, Zix Mail is a recognized leader in email encryption. Many of our clients are already using Zix. The Secure Designs encrypted email package meets a significant HIPAA requirement,” Karn concluded.
“We recognize Total HIPAA both as a solution to meet HIPAA requirements and as a HIPAA information resource. We appreciate them including Secure Designs as an approved vendor,” commented Michael Heath, Manager of Business Development and Direct Sales.
