As part of Total HIPAA’s efforts to provide solutions for its clients that meet HIPAA requirements, THC has qualified Secure Designs for its firewall protection for small and midsize companies. This managed Internet security service prevents intrusions and is necessary for a company or healthcare provider that manages Protected Health Information. In addition Secure Designs offers centralize, HIPAA compliant email encryption powered by Zix Corp.
One of the most difficult processes in protecting a company that handles electronic Protected Health Information is addressing technical issues. Firewalls need to be constantly updated to protect against intrusion. Large companies have either internal IT resources or large vendors that provide guidance. Small and medium size companies often cannot find solutions that are scaled to their network or budget.
Secure Designs has designated companies of 3 to 100 employees as its primary target. They currently manage over 5,000 locations in 36 states and 5 countries. Their services are backed up with a 2,500 sq ft carrier class data center.
“Secure Designs solution off loads an important element for protecting small businesses networks,” commented Jason Karn, Director of IT and Education, Total HIPAA Compliance. “Managed Internet Security Solutions are complicated, but Secure Designs offers a cost-effective solution, “Karn added.
Total HIPAA identifies and qualifies solutions that will help its clients protect electronic Protected Health Information when it is transmitted or stored on computers.
“We recognize Total HIPAA both as a solution to meet HIPAA requirements and as an information resource about HIPAA. We appreciate their inclusion of Secure Designs as an approved vendor, commented Michael Heath, Manager of Business Development and Direct Sales.
