Devon IT, a leading provider of thin client and VDI hardware and software solutions, today announced the availability of SafeBook™ for Dell Rx, the thin client notebook that enables secure, mobile computing for healthcare professionals and supports the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
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 note book 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. “The SafeBook for Dell Rx, based on Dell notebooks, is the latest thin client offering from Devon IT and provides all the advantages of a Dell notebook with the benefits of a thin client approach.”
Devon IT thin clients come bundled with Devon IT’s Echo™ Thin Client Management Software. Echo™ is a unique and powerful software product developed exclusively by Devon IT that 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.
“As HIPAA requirements become more defined and pronounced, we will continue to develop new solutions to advance thin client technology, and are excited to offer this latest approach with Dell,” concluded Makoid. “All healthcare organizations need flexibility, mobility and the ability to secure their patient data. The SafeBook Rx offers the ideal combination of data access, portability and security for all types of healthcare organizations to help achieve HIPAA compliance. Every healthcare IT department should evaluate the SafeBook.”
