Fiberlink Debuts Business Intelligence Platform for Healthcare Mobile Device Compliance

March 11, 2010, BLUE BELL, Pa.--Fiberlink Communications Corporation, the creator and developer of cloud-based Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions, today announced the Healthcare IT Compliance ServiceTM, a comprehensive business intelligence reporting platform for healthcare and life sciences organizations. The MaaS360® Healthcare IT Compliance Service gives IT professionals a single, unified view of policy and status reporting for all their mobile devices, helping organizations to identify and manage compliance vulnerabilities and data security risks.

Healthcare is one of the most mobile industries, with 95% of users relying on smart phones for their work, usually in addition to their laptops. The industry also has the strictest reporting and regulatory requirements, with costly penalties for breaches and a high degree of reputational risk. According to a commissioned technology adoption profile conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Fiberlink, titled "Managing and Securing Mobile Healthcare Data and Devices," 90% of IT leaders consider data security highly or critically important, but only 29% have implemented data link protection on the desktop.

Incorporating tools specifically designed for healthcare IT, the Healthcare IT Compliance Service provides simplified policy and status reporting, management of compliance vulnerabilities and incident and awareness of the device environment for all enterprise mobile devices. Organizations can rely on cloud-based MaaS360 to cost-effectively inform their decision support and enforce regulatory compliance efforts.

"The healthcare industry has one of the broadest and most diverse deployments of mobile devices, but lacks the operational solutions to protect mobile electronic health information," said Jim Szafranski, senior vice president, customer platform services of Fiberlink. "MaaS360 Healthcare IT Compliance Service addresses the challenges that keep healthcare IT leaders up at night. MaaS360 provides visibility and management capabilities that ensure regulatory compliance and the security of confidential medical data."

Healthcare IT Compliance Service delivers:

  • Current and historical device compliance status with policy enforcement details.
  • Automated policy enforcement and remediation.
  • Incident reporting that allows IT to quickly rule out ePHI disclosure requirements. In the event of a loss, MaaS360 identifies the specific violations and provides forensic details in a clear, easy to use report.
  • A rapidly-deployable, cloud-based solution that requires no dedicated IT staff to rollout and operate.

Healthcare IT Compliance Service is available immediately. Fiberlink offers a free 30 day trial of the Healthcare IT Compliance Service, available at healthcare.maas360.com.
