/PRNewswire/ --Trend Micro Inc. (TYO: 4704;TSE: 4704) a global cloud security leader, today announced that the company's flagship virtualization security product, Trend Micro™ Deep Security, was selected by The Patient Privacy Rights advocacy group to be one of 2012's Best Privacy Technologies. Patient Privacy Rights' mission is to be the premier guardian and advocate for health privacy rights. Trend Micro received this honor at the recent 2nd International Summit on the Future of Health Privacy in Washington, DC.
CUPERTINO, Calif., July 11, 2012 The award was based on Trend Micro's customer work with Beth Israel Deaconess Physicians Organization (BIDPO), the physician organization for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston MA, which provides integrated and coordinated managed care contracts and related medical management programs medical management services in support of its 1,500+ members throughout eastern Massachusetts.
Prior to partnering with Trend Micro, BIDPO was faced with the on-going challenges of keeping up with physician practice growth, offering a single patient medical record accessible at all medical offices, meeting HIPAA, ARRA and HITECH requirements, and, most importantly, ensuring that all patient records and communications were secure and kept private.
After deploying Trend Micro Deep Security, BIDPO achieved a security infrastructure that provides system and application security across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. BIDPO was also able to mitigate the potential risks for virtual servers and protect patient data, as well as reduce the risk of sensitive Protected Health Information from being exposed should a security breach occur.
"We created a best practices defense-in-depth security architecture, knowing that we were going to be putting patient data on the Internet," said Bill Gillis, CIO, Beth Israel Deaconess Physician Organization. "We really rely on the server security strategy that Trend Micro has brought to the table for us. It gives us an environment where we can bring virtualization to the forefront, to the Web, in a secure way. Knowing our systems are secure and compliant allows us to focus on our mission of clinical system delivery for our patients and care providers.
"The implicit trust we place in healthcare professionals must extend to the digital world of cyberspace. Protecting patient personal data is a priority of Trend Micro. Deep Security provides robust layered security for the protection of patient data from theft or misuse in both traditional IT and cloud environments," said Tom Kellermann, vice president of cybersecurity, Trend Micro.
