Untangle for Healthcare

Enabling compliance with secured data.

Electronic Health Records (EHR) mandates are driving the adoption of connected devices at healthcare providers. Healthcare providers, organizations, and data warehouses must tightly control and secure patient health information (PHI) to ensure HIPAA and HITECH compliance. More devices on the network can also cause unpredictable spikes in traffic that limit mission-critical applications sending and receiving data.

Untangle enables the healthcare industry to be HIPAA and HITECH compliant with granular controls over who has access to what data, and includes built-in security to prevent data breaches and other headaches caused by malware. When every second counts, medical staff needs to feel confident that critical information will be available at their fingertips.

Orthopaedic Associates of Grand Rapids

The Orthopaedic Associates of Grand Rapids, Michigan, is a local business with a large network. OAGR has twenty four specialist orthopaedic physicians and a total staff of 250 employees spread over three offices. As malware on the web became more widespread, OAGR found its network exposed to this new risk. After a couple of computers got gummed up with adware, OAGR quickly added additional layers of security, including Untangle.

Untangle is simple and secure, but it’s also really flexible.

Genesis Physicians Group

The Genesis Physicians Group is a busy association. It serves 1,700 doctors in the North Texas area, acting as an intermediary between its clients and the insurance companies, and offering a range of other services. Genesis must maintain a tight, secure network that ensures privacy and confidentiality. Physician email accounts need to be kept free of spam, and sensitive patient data needs to be protected from corruption by viruses and exploitation by spyware.

We started using Untangle to address our security issues and to handle network monitoring, and straight away found that productivity went up.
