New York, NY – September 9, 2014 – Safe-T Data announced today that CareCore National (CareCore) has selected Safe-T Data’s Safe-T Box Secure Data Exchange Platform to protect its new customer file upload portal from cyber attacks.
CareCore provides innovative healthcare solutions that contain costs while improving the quality of care. Its programs address a wide array of healthcare services and lab services that touch the lives of over 50 million insured across more than 35 Commercial, Medicare Advantage, Managed Medicaid health plans, ACO’s and Self-insured entities.
CareCore’s successful approach to providing healthcare solutions focuses on streamlining patient care, improving quality and reducing cost. In support of these goals, CareCore sought to provide healthcare providers with the means to submit a broad range of supporting documentation comprising patient-specific healthcare information related to potential treatment options.
CareCore needed to ensure that files of unknown types and sizes could be securely and rapidly received and scanned to protect CareCore’s network from malicious content. CareCore also required the solution to eliminate any vulnerability to unauthorized access and be robust and scalable to support future growth requirements.
CareCore partnered with Safe-T Data, to provide a reliable, simple, secure, and scalable solution that receives, holds and scans any file type (PDF, text, Imaging files, etc.) before it is uploaded to the CareCore health information storage system.
Safe-T Data’s Safe-T Box secure data exchange platform combined with its secure front-end solution, enabled CareCore to create a network-segregated scrubbing zone in which all files uploaded by clients are scanned and processed by the Safe-T Box solution before entering CareCore’s secure storage area.
Safe-T Box ensures that all relevant health information, regardless of format, is validated to be free of malicious content prior to acceptance into CareCore’s environment, thus maintaining strict security and privacy policies.
“We chose to work with Safe-T because of their willingness to be agile and work directly with our team to put in place a solution that met our functional needs, strict timeline and gave us tremendous potential for growth,” said Mark Thomas, VP, Strategic Development at CareCore.
