Virtru and Nightfall Partner to Deliver Robust, Automated Email Security for Easy HIPAA Compliance


    { content.featured_image.alt }}

    Physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals are immensely time-constrained. In such a fast-paced environment, where every moment counts, it’s vital to equip healthcare teams with smart, intuitive security solutions that don’t slow them down. 

    Nightfall’s powerful, cloud-native data loss prevention (DLP) engine can now be integrated with Virtru’s end-to-end email encryption service for Gmail and Microsoft 365. Together, we’re giving busy healthcare workers a remarkably simple way to share PHI data via email workflows, while remaining fully compliant with HIPAA.

    As a result, healthcare professionals can quickly and securely share PHI via their existing email workflows, while remaining confident that PHI will be intelligently detected and automatically encrypted. With granular access controls that are cryptographically bound to the data itself, customers of Virtru and Nightfall can ensure persistent security that spans the entire lifecycle of the data, even after it’s been shared with a patient, third-party provider, or other recipient.  

    “This partnership between Nightfall and Virtru empowers providers, patients, and healthcare staff to securely share PHI via email workflows so that they can easily coordinate care and ultimately improve patient outcomes,” said John Ackerly, CEO of Virtru. “This easy-to-use, end-to-end HIPAA compliance solution for email is the first of many joint innovations to come.”

    “Powering sensitive data classification and protection in every app or service is why we launched the Nightfall Developer Platform,” said Isaac Madan, co-founder, and CEO of Nightfall. “We’re excited to partner with innovative companies like Virtru who seamlessly incorporate our AI-powered detection engine within their system to provide much-needed capabilities to healthcare organizations seeking to securely share sensitive data via email at a time where virtual care delivery is at an all-time high. 

    This partnership can be transformative for healthcare organizations as they work diligently to safeguard patients’ health data in an increasingly large and complex digital ecosystem.
