Data Security for Healthcare Institutions

Recent data breaches in healthcare and other industries have hurt sales, increased operating costs and ruined executive careers from IT to the C-suite. But in healthcare, perhaps the greatest damage is to the long-term reputation (and long-term revenue potential) of the breached organization. Customers no longer trust it to safeguard their confidential healthcare and personal information, which, according to Reuters, is worth 10 to 20 times the value of a stolen credit card number.

This is why Boards and C-suites are demanding data protection that goes beyond compliance to true security. And they are tying pay and job security to achieving these data security objectives quickly.

No Easy Feat

Unfortunately, securing data in the healthcare environment is not simple.

Healthcare organizations typically have multiple kinds of data ranging from images and e-mails to medical records and payment information, stored in multiple devices, running on multiple operating systems and accessed by multiple users in multiple places. The move to digitize all medical records and information combined with reliance on sometimes older, legacy systems makes complying with HIPAA-HITECH and truly securing data even more challenging.

The problem seems intractable. CISOs at healthcare organizations have:

  • Structured and unstructured data to secure
  • Multiple heterogeneous systems
  • Users who need immediate access to data that must always be protected when not in use
  • Users who will not tolerate any degradation in system performance
  • Very little time or budget to secure their data

These CISOs need a truly secure solution they can standardize across their enterprises.

The Vormetric Solution

Vormetric Data Security Platform

Vormetric Data Security Platform Delivers Data-at-Rest Security
to Encrypt Everything, Everywhere

How Vormetric Solutions Work

The Vormetric Data Security Platform is the only solution with a single extensible framework for protecting both structured and unstructured data-at-rest under the diverse requirements of healthcare institutions across the broadest range of OS platforms, databases, cloud environments and big data implementations. The result is low total cost of ownership, efficient deployment and operation and little to no system degradation.

  • Vormetric Transparent Encryption provides file and volume level data-at-rest encryption, secure key management and access controls required by regulation and compliance regimes.
  • Vormetric Data Security Intelligence provides another level of protection from malicious insiders, privileged users, APTs and other attacks that compromise data by delivering the access pattern information that can identify an incident in progress.
  • Vormetric Application Encryption enables enterprises to easily build encryption capabilities into internal applications at the field and column level.
  • Vormetric Key Management enables centralized management of encryption keys for other environments and devices including KMIP compatible hardware, Oracle and SQL Server TDE master keys and digital certificates.
  • Vormetric Tokenization with Dynamic Masking lets administrators establish policies to return an entire field tokenized or dynamically mask parts of a field. With the solution’s format-preserving tokenization capabilities, administrators can restrict access to sensitive assets, yet simultaneously format the protected data in a way that enables many users to do their jobs.
  • Vormetric Cloud Encryption Gateway encrypts data before it is saved to cloud storage, while keeping encryption keys and access policies under enterprise control. This solution removes the possibility of encryption key or data compromise at the cloud storage vendor location. It also enables security teams to establish the visibility and control required to keep assets secure and meet compliance requirements. The gateway also shares policy, administration and management infrastructure with other Vormetric data security offerings – reducing enterprise management, resource and implementation costs.


Vormetric security solutions are designed to help you comply with:

Be Protected in Weeks not Months, Whatever Your OS

Vormetric can work with you to install its Data Security solutions in weeks rather than months. Vormetric’s solutions work with most major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX and Windows servers in physical, virtual, cloud and big data cardholder data environments (CDE).

Easy to Standardize across the Enterprise, and Doesn’t Hurt System Performance

Vormetric Data Security makes it simple to solve security and compliance concerns by simultaneously defending data in databases, files and big data nodes across public, private, hybrid clouds and traditional infrastructures. Central management of the entire data security platform makes it easy to extend data security protection and satisfy compliance requirements across the entire enterprise, growing as required, without adding new hardware or increasing operational burdens.

Customers typically report no perceptible impact to end-user experience when using Vormetric solutions. Vormetric performs encryption and decryption operations at the optimal location of the files system or volume manager taking advantage of hardware cryptographic acceleration, such as Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard-New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) and SPARC Niagara Crypto, to speed the encryption and decryption of data.

Collectively, this leads to the most cost-effective solution on the market.
