Healthcare Data Security

Thales eSecurity helps healthcare organizations protect patient data, reduce risk and demonstrate compliance while pursuing strategic goals around patient outcomes and organizational accountability


Thales eSecurity's data protection solutions provide encryption and key protection to healthcare enterprises to help them reduce the risks associated with holding patient data. Our flexible healthcare data security solutions help strengthen organizational security and compliance postures, and support users’ demands for access to patient data.

Compliant Protection of Structured and Unstructured Data

Healthcare institutions typically store and process multiple kinds of healthcare data, ranging from images and emails to medical records and payment information. This healthcare data, much of which is subject to HIPAA compliance or other privacy mandates, is stored on multiple devices, runs on multiple operating systems and is accessed by multiple users in multiple places.

Users Who Need Immediate, Reliable Access to Data

Given the often urgent nature of the healthcare environment, users require immediate access to healthcare data across a range of devices and applications. IT security managers are tasked with ensuring that clinicians, researchers and patients themselves can access medical records, with no degradation in system performance.

Expanding Threat Landscape

According to Reuters, medical records are worth 10 times the value of a stolen credit card number. As attackers increase their sophistication, healthcare organizations must bolster their healthcare data security and compliance efforts. The unprecedented sharing of healthcare data across clinical applications, devices and facilities expands the potential surface attack area - and the security manager's challenges.

Healthcare Data Encryption

Encryption and key management solutions from Thales eSecurity provide healthcare institutions with a single extensible framework for protecting both structured and unstructured healthcare data under the diverse requirements of healthcare institutions, across the broadest range of OS platforms, databases, cloud environments and big data implementations. Rendering patient data unusable to attackers improves your compliance with data privacy mandates.

No Degradation of System Performance

Our customers typically report no perceptible performance impact and the Live Data Transformation option for Vormetric Transparent Encryption delivers industry-leading availability, resiliency and efficiency. With this option, a database or file system can be used normally, including powerful access control and logging capabilities, while it is undergoing encryption.

Strong User Access Controls

Thales eSecurity provides healthcare institutions with the comprehensive, robust and granular controls they need to guard against the abuse of privileged user access. Through the Vormetric Data Security Platform's centralized policy and key management, customers can address security policies and compliance mandates across databases, files and big data nodes. And Thales can help you create high-assurance systems to authenticate employees using internal systems, and a variety of connected devices accessing the network.

Protect Organizational Reputation and Revenues

Data breaches at healthcare organizations have increased operating costs and impacted executive careers from IT to the C-suite, but perhaps the greatest damage is to the long-term reputation (and long-term revenue potential) of the breached organization. Establishing a strong security and compliance posture helps defend the healthcare enterprise against negative reputational and financial impact.

Improve Compliance with HIPAA-HITECH, PCI DSS and More

Data privacy mandates specify that organizations that store and process patient data - and other personally identifiable information - must protect it against theft or other loss. The Vormetric Data Security Platform from Thales eSecurity helps organizations meet HIPAA Security Rule and HITECH compliance requirements transparently - without changes to operational processes and the daily work of healthcare professionals.

Render Patient Records Unusable to Attackers

Attackers are motivated by the black market value of patient medical records. However, with Thales eSecurity’s data encryption solutions in place, attackers will find only a jumble of ciphertext in place of patient data.

Solution Briefs : Data Protection Solutions for Healthcare Enterprises

Securing patient data is increasingly difficult for healthcare organizations, which must strike a balance between user needs and security. With medical records distributed across more databases, applications and devices than ever before, the potential attack surface continues to expand. Learn how Thales helps organizations strengthen their security and compliance postures.


eBooks : HIPAA compliance and data encryption: it’s time to go beyond addressable

The Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) calls for the use of data encryption, but doesn’t mandate it. Given the massive changes in computing and the threat landscape in the 20 years since HIPAA went into effect, it’s time to make patient data protection a top priority. This eBook highlights the security and compliance benefits that result from implementing data encryption, and details why it is a necessary protection measure for any organization that processes patient information.
