SYDNEY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Covata, a provider of data-centric security solutions, today announced that CipherPoint Eclipse was named a Gold winner by Info Security Products Guide in the 14th Annual Global Excellence Awards® for Best Security Products and Solutions for Healthcare. CipherPoint Eclipse, Covata’s data security and privacy compliance solution for Microsoft SharePoint, is unique in its ability to control access to data, keeping privileged IT administrators, and outside attackers that target IT-level access, from being able to view sensitive information.
Increased pressure within the healthcare industry to share more information and by faster means, is largely due to an effort to reduce costs and increase the efficiency of medical care. File sharing and collaborative environments are growing in popularity because they are simple to use, but they are incredibly challenging to secure to keep sensitive data protected. These tools must also comply with stringent requirements designed to enforce the security of electronic protected healthcare information (ePHI). In response to this challenge, CipherPoint Eclipse identifies, secures, and audits access to sensitive and regulated data, both on-premises and in cloud file sharing and collaboration systems, with a single data security management console.
Covata’s VP of Security, Mike Fleck, says the use of data encryption to comply with regulations and provide safe harbor in the event of a breach is a top initiative for healthcare companies, as well as many other industries subject to similarly rigorous regulation.
“Our CipherPoint Eclipse solution provides healthcare organizations with a simple and cost-effective solution to manage ePHI in this environment. It is pleasing to be recognized by Info Security Products Guide and we look forward to helping more organizations, in the healthcare space and beyond, achieve the business efficiencies, and cost and risk reduction, associated with secure collaboration,” he said.
CipherPoint Eclipse provides file and list encryption, centralized permissions management, and granular activity logging for sensitive and regulated data to enable the healthcare industry to increase the use of collaboration platforms and cloud services for highly sensitive data. The solution is easy to deploy and manage, completely transparent to end users, scalable to meet the needs of any industry, and does not require deployment of software to user devices. As users upload information to a location secured by CipherPoint Eclipse, that information is immediately encrypted and remains encrypted in use, in transit, and at rest. Only users authorized by the centrally controlled access policies may view unencrypted content.
The solution’s combination of granular encryption and strictly enforced access controls means that CipherPoint Eclipse can also control backup, server, database and application administration access to sensitive data. It ensures that security is never an afterthought by giving customers total control, visibility and auditability of their sensitive information.
