PALO ALTO, Calif. -- PGP Corporation, a global leader in enterprise data security and encryption solutions, today announced that DeKalb Medical Center, a Georgia-based hospital system, is using the PGP(R) Encryption Platform to monitor and secure the privacy of patients' health records. Protection of "individually identifiable health information" is required by the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). DeKalb Medical Center is using PGP Universal(TM) for gateway email encryption to securely transfer confidential financial, patient, and billing information to doctors and insurers as well as accounting, third-party billing, and collection companies. The medical center is also using PGP(R) Command Line to protect files in storage and transit, eliminating the need for a virtual private network.
"With the standards-based PGP Encryption Platform, we quickly deployed an enterprise-class email encryption solution without installing anything on any desktop-and performance is phenomenal," said Sharon Finney, information security administrator for DeKalb Medical Center. "The PGP Encryption Platform gives us the flexibility to exchange data securely with recipients that use other encryption standards such as S/MIME or don't have an encryption solution. Because all sensitive information is automatically secured, end users don't have to worry about classifying and encrypting information." PGP Corp.
