Securing patient data beyond the network
To protect sensitive data, Absolute healthcare customers rely on a trusted lifeline to each device, regardless of user or location. Persistence technology from Absolute, allows IT administrators to maintain contact with each device, on or off the network. If an unauthorized user attempts to uninstall the Absolute software agent, it will automatically reinstall. And if suspicious activity occurs, IT is alerted so they can remotely invoke preemptive or reactive security measures such as device freeze, data delete or data retrieval to ensure - and most importantly prove - that compliance measures were in place.
