In the United States, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted to protect confidential information. And in many other countries, similar laws have been introduced to safeguard the privacy of patients. As a result, companies must be especially careful with emails and faxes that may contain sensitive and personal details.
However, GFI Software has four solutions that will strengthen your compliance – so you can send sensitive information safely, store it securely and then prove that it remains secure.
GFI FaxMaker – the safer alternative to the fax machine
Sending paper messages via a fax machine presents a number of risks: Is the machine in a secure location? Did the documents arrive OK? Has anyone else seen what’s been sent or received? But problems can be avoided by GFI FaxMaker™, which lets you send and receive faxes from your email. Paper-free faxes are faster and cheaper as well as being more secure. You can also backup and search for faxes in the same way that emails are stored and retrieved.
