Healthcare Employees Need Preventive Medicine for Mobile Security

Anne Bisagno

30 SECOND READ

Mobile devices have become vital tools for medical professionals. According to a recent report from mobile security firm Skycure, 99 percent of doctors now use mobile devices, and nearly three-fourths of them use more than one type. What's more, mobile devices let them access and share patient data in many ways, from SMS and texting to picture messaging.

 

However, these same tools that improve healthcare delivery also put healthcare organizations at high risk of cybercrime. Skycure found that 14 percent of mobile devices containing patient data aren't even protected with a passcode.

 

Protecting sensitive information — and patient health — calls for a vaccination against cybercrime in the form of strong mobile management and mobile security solutions. Xantrion can help you put them into place so your doctors can use their smartphones, tablets, and laptops safely.
