Multi Factor Authentication in Healthcare – SafeNet
Maintaining the security of patient data is a complex proposition that affects every employee of a healthcare facility. While many facilities are working toward achieving full compliance with HIPAA, HITECH, and other privacy regulations, there are a variety of factors to consider that go beyond compliance issues to address the overall risk to your facility.
Healthcare data theft is currently the fastest criminal enterprise today, in the past 12 months almost one in five healthcare facilities has reported a breach in their system, this represents a 6% increase against the previous year. It is said that 66% of all breaches are the result of unauthorised or inadvertent actions of employees.
As more medical records are going online, and hospital networks are sharing this data among doctors, patients, and insurers on the Internet, it’s imperative to control who has access to the information and secure the application itself from data breaches.
Sensitive information is everywhere, smartphones, PDAs, and laptops, creating new vulnerabilities in healthcare IT systems.
Simplify your patient data security with the most complete, centralised, and end-to-end solution in healthcare.
SafeNet provides a flexible, centralised solution to secure your patient data records and health history, billing account information, intellectual property (e.g., medical and pharmaceutical patents), and any other data or transaction information your organisation needs to safeguard.
By using an Information Lifecycle Protection (ILP) framework that combines encryption, access policies, key management, content security, and authentication, SafeNet’s Data Protection allows healthcare organisations to align IT strategies with future business growth through a comprehensive, intelligent, persistent, and extensible approach. All critical encryption and key management requirements are centrally implemented, eliminating the need to invest in disparate systems from different vendors.
