Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) - SecureData, Inc, a US-based and leading provider of multi-award-winning portable FIPS-validated hardware-encrypted data storage devices, has helped to solve the problems of meeting data security and compliance requirements for healthcare providers.
Cleveland-based Western Reserve Hospital needed a way to tighten data security for their everyday business operations. Mr. Vince Allen, Manager of IT&S Operations said, “To help ensure compliance, we had to enhance our security to make sure that any portable data was encrypted and could be remotely wiped if the device is ever lost or stolen.”
Western Reserve turned to the SecureUSB® BT flash drive, one of SecureData's hardware-encrypted USB drive offerings with secure wireless authentication methods. These methods allow a user with an iOS/Android mobile device to unlock the drive through password entry, biometrics like facial recognition or fingerprints, and they can use 2-factor authentication as well. The drive is also “Remote Management (RM) ready”, giving customers the ability to subscribe to this secure SaaS RM offering from SecureData at any time.
After having the drives and RM in place for several months, Mr. Allen rated the drives overall “10 out of 10” on performance, reliability, design, and quality; and he specifically mentioned the sturdiness of the design. One of the features he found to be useful for his non-technical end-users was authentication on the drive through FaceID/TouchID.
“The BT drives are easy to manage and deploy. I spend less than five minutes to provision the drive, and I spend about five minutes with the user when I hand it off,” Mr. Allen said.
In some instances, doctors and hospital managers must share information or give presentations, and the drives allow an administrator to assign multiple users to one USB device. Due to the FIPS-validated design, secure access methods, and the Remote Wipe feature, Mr. Allen is confident that any data that employees put on these devices will be protected from accidental data leaks.
Mr. Allen said, “I've had zero complaints from my users, which are doctors, hospital staff, and my IT team. No additional IT support is necessary after the initial set up.”
“SecureData strives to provide solutions that continually earn the great feedback we received from Western Reserve Hospital’s data security project,” commented Mike Vanoverbeke, Product Management Director at SecureData.
