In the strictly regulated healthcare industry, it is necessary to take a proactive approach. Today’s healthcare IT departments are charged with identifying breach risks and plugging potential data leaks before they occur. Implementing basic security measures, such as installing and enabling encryption, is a good first line of defense.

This whitepaper is designed to explain how AirWatch can help healthcare organizations meet these recommendations, remain HIPAA compliant and ensure patient information is protected.
