Marble Security Messenger Platform Aimed at Health Care Workers
The platform enables organizations to protect patient information on mobile devices with encryption and passwords.Cloud-based mobile security specialist Marble Security is reaching out to physicians, surgeons, nurses, emergency responders and other health care professionals who want to transfer protected health information from mobile phones with the launch of Marble Messenger. The platform enables organizations to protect patient information on mobile devices with encryption and passwords and enforce electronic protected health information (ePHI) security policies for both senders and receivers. Since it is encrypted, patient information is also protected as it traverses the Internet or a mobile network. Additional safety is provided by an auto-destruct feature that deletes the image and text after a time limit is reached. The Marble mobile security platform lets administrators, via the cloud, set and enforce risk-based policies, control mobile security through dashboards, and run risk analytics and compliance reports.
"Customers tell us that with Marble Messenger, they can continue to consult with other health care professionals via secure messaging while not violating HIPAA/HITECH [Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act/Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act] regulations," David Jevans, Marble Security founder and chief technology officer, said in a statement. "With the pervasive use of mobile, we are seeing interest in other sectors as well to encrypt and protect sensitive information that is routinely sent over mobile devices."
