While healthcare providers need to protect patient data to comply with HIPAA and HITECH requirements as well as state and local data breach laws, healthcare payers require efficient and reliable security for complex billing and transaction information. Vormetric Data Security for HealthCare helps both healthcare providers and insurers establish and enforce security policies to control and protect sensitive data.

Vormetric Data Security enables providers and insurance carriers to encrypt sensitive data in any file, database, or application--including those in physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures. Vormetric enforces access controls, reports on who is accessing protected data, and supports all major database platforms and Linux, Unix, and Windows environments.

The Vormetric product provides key management for Transparent Data Encryption available within Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases, and includes a secure vault for storing any encryption key. The Vormetric tools allow healthcare organizations to secure sensitive data across business lines and heterogeneous systems.

The product is available as a single appliance, or a double appliance, as shown here.
