In the healthcare industry, keeping patient data secure is not just a challenge, it is a legal necessity. Loss and theft of laptops makes sensitive data vulnerable. Worse, an unauthorized user might use a lost or stolen laptop to access the hospital’s computer systems. Healthcare organizations must also comply with increasingly stringent regulations, such as HIPPA and HITECH, to protect patient data and privacy. Compounding the problem is that with more mobile workers, healthcare organizations also need to be able to secure confidential data even when systems are off-site and/or not connected to a network.
