Asigra Inc, a leading provider of cloud backup software, has used new research to point out the dangers posed by the significant growth of digital threats to patient health information (PHI) and how its products can help alleviate the problem of data loss.

A 2012 report issued by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) surveyed more than 500 healthcare organisations across the United States and detailed a 14% rise in patient health record security breaches since 2008.

In tackling this problem, Asigra Cloud Backup, a FIPS 140-2 certified solution, has emerged as the premier option offering in-flight and at-rest secure data encryption for healthcare professionals.

This now extends to data-backup for laptop, mobile and wireless devices, with mobiles storing health information cited as major factors behind the increase in compromised data.
