The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement in the workplace has been extremely beneficial for the healthcare industry, allowing providers to improve the speed and accuracy of care with real-time access to patient data. However, this convenience comes with risk. The flurry of unchecked apps and rapid advances in mobile technology make patient data vulnerable to breach or loss, leaving healthcare IT organizations struggling to ensure proper safeguards are in place that adhere to HIPAA and HITECH regulations.

The HealthFORT Managed Cloud Platform can assist healthcare organizations in the implementation a secure BYOD policy by providing a secure, compliant infrastructure to host clinical applications and protect PHI. A few of the platform benefits for BYOD include:
Data encryption at rest and in motion
Advanced access controls and key management
Infrastructure flexibility and customization
Ability to rapidly scale and pay only for the resources you use
Simple to use infrastructure management tools
Advanced Security and Performance for Mobile Application Development
Mobile application developers seeking a secure, high-performance infrastructure capable of hosting their healthcare focused software solutions will see even greater benefits:
Security by Design: Hardened machine images, instance-based firewalls, anti-virus, vulnerability scanning, and optional log management and monitoring
Advanced Automation: Eliminate tedious and time-consuming tasks by leveraging purpose-built healthcare cloud-formation templates to quickly deploy new or duplicate existing environments for testing
High Availability: SQL based-replication, load balanced application server farms, real-time DNS management, and geo-redundancy are all available.
