As healthcare providers and employees continue to access more patient data on mobile devices, they must also recognize the increased risk with personal apps that operate on the same device
Reston, VA (PRWEB) October 25, 2016
SyncDog, Inc., the leading ISV for mobile application containerization, today announced the version 2.5 release of its SentinelSecure™ containerized mobile workspace with a HIPAA-compliant configuration for healthcare-specific mobile workflows. SentinelSecure™ containerized workspace for healthcare secures enterprise mobile collaboration with productivity applications in a FIPS 140-2 certified,* AES 256-bit encrypted container. The mobile security solution is designed as a complement to existing EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) and MDM (Mobile Device Management) solutions, and is certified for MobileIron, Snow Software, Notify Technology, and the Apperian Mobile App Platform.
“Penalties for HIPAA violations are increasing in frequency and severity,” said Jonas Gyllensvaan, SyncDog founder and CEO. “As healthcare providers and employees continue to access more patient data on mobile devices, they must also recognize the increased risk with personal apps that operate on the same device. This configuration of SentinelSecure™ has been designed to secure enterprise applications on the device-level to protect patient data from the growing threat of mobile malware.”
High-profile data breaches continue to hit the healthcare industry, as in the case of Advocate Health Care Network, Illinois’s largest hospital chain. Advocate accepted a record $5.5 million settlement with the OCR (Office of Civil Rights) in August of this year. In light of these growing instances of HIPAA non-compliance and subsequent penalties, SyncDog has released this 2.5 version build of SentinelSecure™ to secure ePHI (electronic Protected Healthcare Information) to HIPAA standards.
