SECNAP Network Security Provides Ready Access to Effective, Effortless Security for Personal Health Information (PHI) to Members of the South Florida Hospital and Healthcare Association and Other Healthcare Providers
Boca Raton, Fla., October 14, 2011 – Healthcare providers are experiencing a crisis in compliance under pressure from multiple regulations, increased fines for security breaches, and resource constraints affecting adoption of electronic health records (EHR) despite financial incentives offered by the HITECH Act. As a leading developer of information security solutions for organizations responsible for sensitive client and patient data, SECNAP Network Security has joined the South Florida Hospital and Healthcare Association to assist healthcare providers in navigating the health information security alternatives available to them and enable them to implement effective, effortless Personal Health Information security in their organizations.
The South Florida Hospital and Healthcare Association (SFHHA) serves as an advocate, facilitator and educator on behalf of its members. The SFHHA advances the interests of member organizations to the public, elected and government officials, and the business community. The SFHHA also provides educational programs that enable members to better manage the delivery of care in their communities.
SECNAP Network Security introduced its ground-breaking Rule18 Email Security and Privacy solution in 2010 to ensure that health-related communications meet federal encryption standards, including emails transmitted by smartphones and tablets. In 2011, Rule18 won Best Product in the Mobile Solutions category from the Network Products Guide and received a five-star rating from SC Magazine.
The company is now delivering its newest innovation, CloudJacketTM, to ensure that healthcare providers, health insurers and other healthcare business associates have easy access to seamless, effective personal health information security. A fully managed holistic solution, CloudJacket represents a quantum shift from traditional information security products, which have proven inadequate in the face of emerging and zero-day threats and escalating cyberattacks. A surge in high-profile attacks this year has demonstrated the limits of an older generation of security software from Symantec, McAfee and others, according to a Bloomberg article published in August.
“CloudJacket defines a new generation of security and privacy that is vital to compliance in the healthcare industry,” said Victor Nappe, chief executive officer of SECNAP Network Security, developer of CloudJacket. “We’re one of the boutique tech players Gartner refers to in their July Security Market Report who bring innovative technology solutions to bear on new threats—and we’re proud of our leadership in healthcare information security innovation.”
SECNAP Network Security develops information technology and cybersecurity solutions that enable business to be conducted securely on the Internet, leveraging the CloudJacket Integrated Security Management platform to deliver award-winning network security, email security and privacy services in the cloud at total lower cost of ownership. In addition, the firm offers an extensive suite of security audits including internal and external vulnerability assessments, HIPAA / HITECH, GLBA, ISO and other compliance audits, web application and wireless assessments and more.
