Trivalent debuts new healthcare security product for Windows OS at HIMSS17
Trivalent, a privacy and security technology vendor, has unveiled Trivalent Protect, a product designed to secure sensitive and private healthcare information on devices running the Windows OS platform.
As healthcare organizations continue to digitize information, from patient data to sensitive business information, on mobile or laptop devices, they increasingly are exposed to non-compliance penalties and the consequences of data loss, Trivalent said. Trivalent Protect aims to provide healthcare IT security and risk professionals with a seamless and scalable technology that is National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) certified, the vendor said.
The new technology is designed for any computing devices that support Windows 7, 8 and 10. Different than traditional full-disk encryption systems, Trivalent Protect provides data security and privacy protection through a proprietary process Trivalent calls Data Alchemy. This process of file-encryption, shredding, and local or cloud storage transforms the properties of sensitive and regulated data to make it completely unusable to hackers and unauthorized users, the vendor explained.
Trivalent Protect is designed to safeguard critical data, such as protected health information, personally identifiable information and primary account numbers, in both connected and disconnected modes, which enables health data to remain compliant in the event of a data breach or a stolen device, the vendor explained.
“With this technology, healthcare organizations can now effectively control their data on any Windows OS device at all times, providing freedom to operate without risk of non-compliance or data theft,” said Jyoti Wadhwa, vice president of marketing at Trivalent.
As part of the debut of Trivalent Protect at HIMSS17, the company is sponsoring a free health data security and privacy protection webinar March 22, 2017, at 1:30 p.m. (EST).
HIMSS17 runs from Feb. 19-23, 2017 at the Orange County Convention Center.
