Cigna-HealthSpring Has Peace of Mind with Absolute

By: Absolute Editorial Team | 12/11/2013

Kyle Duke, Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Security Officer at Cigna-HealthSpring shares how Cigna HealthSpring manages data security to maintain compliance with HIPAA's strict data protection regulations in our customer video.

Cigna-HealthSpring got its start in 2000 and is now a leading health service company in the US, based in Nashville, Tennessee. As one of the largest and fastest-growing coordinate care plans with a focus on Medicare Advantage plans, covering 13 states as well as having a national stand-alone prescription drug plan.

Cigna-HealthSpring chose Absolute to offer an "extra layer of protection" for highly sensitive Protected Health Information (PHI) because of HIPAA. Unlike existing tools being used such as encryption and anti-virus, Absolute offers Persistence technology. Cigna-HealthSpring has highly mobile employees such as their Health Services team who are in the field with sensitive data and reports; Absolute offers the visibility of those devices, no matter where they are.

In the video, Kyle talks about the decision making process they go through when assessing what to do when a device goes missing. With Absolute, knowing what data is on the devices helps to drive the decision about action - whether the data is deleted or the device is bricked, for example. Cigna-HealthSpring goes above and beyond with their partners, going so far as to provide Absolute-protected devices to ensure all partners are compliant.

Do you want the same manageability for your mobile workforce, the extra layer of security, and the peace of mind that Kyle has at Cigna-HealthSpring? Check out Absolute and watch the full video here.
