Lutheran Life Communities Meets PII/PHI Compliance for HIPAA/HITECH, GLB, SOX, and PCI With Palisade Systems' Data Loss Preventi

Health Care provider receives immediate ROI by safeguarding patients' sensitive data, ensuring compliance, and securing the network from data loss with Palisade's PacketSure

DES MOINES, Iowa, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Palisade Systems, the leader in Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions for mid-size and small businesses, announced today that Lutheran Life Communities, a multi-site long-term care provider, has successfully ensured ongoing HIPAA/HITECH, GLB, SOX, and PCI compliance requirements with Palisade's PacketSure, a full-featured Data Loss Prevention solution designed for mid-sized businesses.

Recognizing they would need to meet compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economical and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), and protect additional sensitive data from inappropriate use, Lutheran executed a search for a data loss prevention solution.

Thorough Search Leads to PacketSure

After a thorough search, DeRoche selected Palisade's PacketSure because PacketSure delivered a solution designed and built for mid-sized enterprises, with all the functionality they needed, and at a price they could afford. In less than one hour Lutheran installed PacketSure and DeRoche immediately had the details of how the solution would deliver against the goals he had set. "

Immediate ROI Justifies Expense

During the initial assessment PacketSure provided insight into 2,417 potential hits or violations of Lutheran's network.

According to DeRoche, justification for the purchase of PacketSure was easy. Fines for HIPAA/HITECH and other regulatory violations can cripple a mid-sized firm. "While some initial fines are $50,000, pervasive violations start at $250,000," he explained. So, according to DeRoche, the easy-to-use Palisade solution "more than justified its purchase with the first violation discovery alone – it provided an immediate ROI for us."
