Ipswitch® Announces a New Resource for Healthcare IT Professionals

Newly Available Guides, Videos and Blog Posts Explain How Healthcare IT Pros Can Better Protect Protected Health Information (PHI) from Cybercriminals

Lexington, Mass, February 2, 2017Ipswitch, the leader in easy to try, buy and use file transfer and network management software, announced today the release of a new online resources for Healthcare IT professionals. These new e-books, videos, blogs and user stories are dedicated to helping IT teams better secure protected health information (PHI).

Most healthcare organizations in the U.S. have adopted electronic health record (EHR) systems to store patient medical records. Daily operational processes like medical billing and payment and insurance eligibility determinations require the transmission of this data to external partners. Since PHI is now worth 10x as much as credit card data on the black market, the need to protect this sensitive data when shared outside the confines of the organization’s firewall has become increasingly important.

Progress® MOVEit® enables hospitals, clearinghouses and insurance companies to securely and reliably share large volumes of data files with complete control and visibility. Hundreds of hospitals depend on MOVEit for secure file transfers in accordance with HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR, PCI DSS and the Personal Information Protection Acts of an additional 12 countries globally.

Additionally, MOVEit improves the efficiency of day-to-day operations. It enables IT teams to reduce operational costs, meet or exceed service level agreements (SLAs) requirements and roll-out new patient services quickly.

“Ipswitch is heavily focused on enabling IT teams with the best IT management tools. This requires extensive engagement to better understand their use cases and derive product feedback,” said Monica Gupta, Ipswitch Senior Product Marketing Manager. “One of the things we uncovered in these interactions is that our customers are very interested in learning how their peers use our technology to solve key business challenges. This new resource is dedicated to that purpose.”
