Symantec Disk Encryption Helps HealthDataInsights Secure Medical Records

The PGP Whole Disk Encryption from Symantec has proven to be highly successful for HealthDataInsights, Inc. The healthcare claims review company has reported significant cost savings after implementing the full disk encryption to protect data.

HDI, a company that reviews more than $300 billion in paid claims annually, implemented PGP Whole Disk Encryption after employees struggled with free disk encryption software to comply with laws including the Federal Information Processing Standard that govern the protection of confidential information and the systems used to access and store that information. Kurt Smith, systems security officer for HealthDataInsights, says the decision to go with PGP Whole Disk Encryption has been a financially smart one.

“People too often had trouble opening their files and kept seeing the dreaded blue screens of death,” Smith said. “We risked losing hundreds of thousands of dollars a day in lost productivity, so we decided to implement PGP Whole Disk Encryption from Symantec and have realized 100 percent return on our investment after just one month.”

PGP Whole Disk Encryption from Symantec provides HDI with full disk encryption for all data on desktops, laptops and removable media. The encrypted data is then protected from unauthorized access, providing strong security for intellectual property, customer and partner data.
