Top HIPAA Compliant Email Security Service Providers

Below is an excerpt from BuiltIn’s article featuring Mailprotector as a top HIPAA Compliant Email Security Solution. 

“As technology continues to transform countless industries, healthtech has emerged as one of the world’s fastest-growing and promising sectors. According to a study from Silicon Valley Bank, venture-backed financing for healthtech startups has grown by 25 percent since 2015, with many companies valued at over $1 billion.

For founders of healthtech companies, forging innovations within the healthcare industry means more than developing an easy-to-use app. In truth, protecting patients’ sensitive data is essential to building a successful healthtech company, and it requires adhering to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). As outlined by the Digital Guardian, HIPAA mandates that organizations with access to protected health information, or PHI, must have the proper security measures in place before collecting patient data.

In response to this need for patient information protection, many companies have dedicated themselves to delivering HIPAA-compliant email services. Employing technologies like AI and blockchain, these organizations help companies within the healthcare space secure patient emails and prevent HIPAA breaches. These providers often offer automated spam blocking, virus checking, email access auditing, and more as a part of their end-to-end email encryption solutions.

Here is how Built In highlights Mailprotector:

MailProtector offers a broad range of cloud-based email security, management, and hosting services. The company offers end-to-end, HIPAA-compliant email encryption, which involves simply wrapping an email’s subject in brackets. MailProtector also adds extra security to the process by asking email recipients to view messages through a secure link, which expires 15 minutes after delivery.
