Devon IT, a leading provider of thin client and VDI hardware and software solutions, has announced the availability of SafeBook for Dell Rx, a thin client notebook that enables secure, mobile computing for healthcare professionals and supports the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). It was announced today, March 29.
According to Devon IT, a recent report from the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) shows that the biggest cause of HIPAA data breaches is theft and loss of laptops and other portable media.
Many reports on laptops in healthcare suggest solutions that rely on users to secure their data or their device. Thin clients alleviate the human aspect of data security by ensuring that all data resides on the servers. Even if a thin client notebook is lost or stolen, no sensitive data such as patient information is compromised on the device.
“Healthcare organizations need a comprehensive solution to secure and manage multiple device types and platforms. Devon IT has once again collaborated with Dell to provide advanced virtual and hosted desktop technologies capable of transforming the way IT pros think about computing,” says Joe Makoid, president, Devon IT.
Devon IT thin clients come bundled with its Echo Thin Client Management Software. It combines thin client management capabilities with connection management features.
Customers use Echo to oversee large-scale hosted-desktop deployments, and also to manage small groups of thin client terminals. Customers who take advantage of any Dell or Devon IT thin clients devices benefit from a fully integrated management approach through Echo, says the company.
