Solution improvements streamline functionality and management
DALLAS – Oct. 25, 2017 – Armor has announced that it has further strengthened cloud security for MyVitalz™, a cloud-based in-home medical monitoring solution provider that improves care and reduces costs. A customer since 2013, MyVitalz is now transitioning to the latest version of Armor’s dynamic security solution to improve PHI data management and protection.
“The healthcare industry is responsible for vital data that is highly-coveted by criminals,” said Chris Drake, founder and CEO, Armor. “With these security threats and new regulatory demands consistently being implemented, the cloud has become an ideal platform to manage massive amounts of information. To fully leverage its benefits and efficiencies, however, security cannot be an afterthought. Armor’s solutions lift security responsibilities from our customers to provide peace-of-mind that critical patient data is protected.”
Organizations that manage PHI must ensure that physical network and process security measures are meticulously followed. Since 2013 MyVitalz has addressed HIPAA compliance challenges by securing ePHI and PHI data with Armor. Armor’s HITRUST CSF-certified managed security solutions provide inherited compliance controls that dramatically reduces customers’ security burden.
“As an increasing number of hospitals, clinics and home health agencies seek to utilize our technology to reduce costs by treating patients at home, data security becomes even more of a priority,” said Justus Decher, president, MyVitalz. “We rely on Armor to protect the sensitive information our customers collect so they can focus on delivering quality healthcare. They also support our compliance adherence which lifts a huge responsibility from our team.”
Armor provides MyVitalz seamless, complete control of its cloud environment while fulfilling the shared security requirements of public cloud platforms. Armor delivers managed protection, detection, and 24/7/365 response for cloud platforms, including Azure and AWS© backed by a seasoned Security Operations Center providing advanced threat intelligence capabilities.
MyVitalz™ is a IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) company and certified Qualcomm Life 2net integrator.
MyVitalz™ secure cloud-based, in-home monitoring solution collects biometric health data from patients at home through the use of Bluetooth medical devices and a 3G/BTLE cellular Hub that transmits the data in near real time to our secure Armor cloud. And because patients take their own vital signs, (blood pressure, heart rate, weight, oxygen, blood glucose and respiratory) they become actively involved in their plan of care and the data becomes immediately available to the entire care team. These readings assist the care team with decision-making and help improve patient outcomes and care.
Armor protects customers’ vital assets and helps prevent data breaches through managed multi-layer security for public and private clouds. The Armor team also applies extensive military cyber security experience for proactive threat detection, response and remediation. Forward-thinking organizations trust Armor for data security and compliance to stay ahead of cyber threats in the cloud. To learn more, visit www.armor.com or follow @armor.
