Serv-U® FTP Server in Healthcare Services
Healthcare systems, insurance companies, and medical suppliers regularly push sensitive data volumes measured in gigabytes. Increasingly strict data protection regulations including network, databases, user access, and other fields are require looking for a modern and secure solution without leaving any data exposed.
"Managed file transfer" edition of Serv-U FTP Server was the choice for most healthcare services, because it’s reliable, secure, and meets stringent HIPAA, privacy and other stringent criteria around PHI.
MFT server provides complete compliance, no matter who regulates you:
- HHS (HIPAA / HITECH)
- PCI Security Standards Council
- Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)
- Local and state PII privacy and consumer protection statutes
Why choose MFT over the FTP server?
While common FTP solutions possess a lot of compromises, especially multiple layers of security, and just fulfilling basic file transfers needs, there’s a logical reason for choosing Managed File transfer solutions.
HIPAA HITECH rules from HHS require you to report PHI data breaches affecting more than 500 people within 60 days of the breach. You may also be subject to large fines from $100 to $50,000 per violation. Larger fines are assessed when IT departments fail to remedy known breaches, and fines up to $1,500,000 have already been assessed.
If you work with a HIPAA privacy/security team you can be a hero by using an affordable Serv-U deployment as preventative medicine against costly PHI data breaches.
Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server is geared for meeting the strictest compliance standards, covering the complete process of file sharing, access, encryption, and system logging to protect sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
