Data Sheet

HIPAA Compliant Email and File Sharing

Protect PHI wherever it’s shared to ensure HIPAA compliance and deliver better care outcomes.

Healthcare providers need quick access to health data, and while cloud collaboration improves accessibility, it also increases risks for data loss and patient confidentiality breaches. The Health and Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires encryption for the transmission of protected health information (PHI), with violations resulting in fines up to $1.5 million. Meanwhile, 65% of patients would consider changing providers in the event of a breach, highlighting the importance of patient confidentiality.

Virtru makes HIPAA compliance and patient confidentiality easy by putting you in full control of PHI shared across cloud environments, applications, and devices, while enabling seamless access that improves care delivery. Integrated with tools you already use like Gmail, Google Drive, and Microsoft Outlook, Virtru ensures PHI stays protected throughout the course of care.
