Ninety percent of healthcare workers access protective healthcare information from their mobile devices. In the last year alone, the number of healthcare organizations accepting BYOD, has risen from thirty percent to forty-five percent. BYOD increases employee and practitioner productivity but also creates a security and compliance gap that must be filled. HIPPA requires that healthcare organizations handling protective health information, or PHI, protect their patients data. Failure to comply can result in fines. Medical data has become one of the hottest commodities on the black market, worth fifty times more than credit card data. Protecting PHI has become of paramount importance with cloud apps and mobile devices, causing PHI to move outside the corporate firewall.

Bitglass's total data protection solution deploys transparently between aps and endpoint devices. Wit Bitglass, you control how and where sensitive data can be accessed and can track data after it's been downloaded to personal mobile devices. Based on the level of sensitivity of the data, Bitglass blocks, redacts or encrypts PHI before it hits the mobile device. Eliminating the chance of data being shared irresponsibly. If an employee's mobile device is lost or stolen, all corporate data can be remotely wiped from the phone, leaving all personal data untouched. Because Bitglass deploys without software, there are no concerns about conflicting with another organization's mobile device management solution. This is especially important for institutions with large number of independent contractors working at multiple hospitals. In healthcare, minutes can mean the difference between life and death. Bitglass enables healthcare organizations operate at the speed of life, while remaining HIPPA compliant. Achieve total data protection in a BYOD world, with Bitglass
