DataMotion Enables HIPAA Email Compliance, HITECH, PCI and GLBA Email Compliance

DataMotion’s powerful encryption solutions help you achieve regulatory and industry compliance when emailing PII (Personally Identifiable Information), PHI (Protected Health Information), proprietary data or any other kind of sensitive information. HIPAA/HITECH, GLBA, PCI and other regulations require sensitive data to be encrypted when transferred over a public network like the Internet. When you use email and simple file attachments for sending sensitive business communications, it’s imperative these be secured when in transit. Our easy-to-use encryption solutions focus on the protection of data in motion, for example, when sending messages and files to another person or system. DataMotion solutions are just one part of your overall compliance strategy. You’ll need other services for local encryption such as disk, file or folder encryption. Only a portion of the regulations that require email encryption are shown below. Be assured, whenever email encryption is needed, DataMotion satisfies the requirements for securing email in transit.
