Medical professionals can agree
that protecting patient informa-
tion is one of their top priorities. Patients put
a lot of trust into their healthcare providers to
maintain that their information is never lost
or stolen, and providers are subject to rigor-
ous standards, such as the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
As more and more medical devices are
collecting patient data, the need to safeguard
privacy and secure information has increased.
Data storage managers are turning more to
tape encryption, which allows them to ensure
effective security for sensitive data.
Today, storage professionals in the medical
industry are archiving patient data to LTO
tapes as a means to secure patient data offline. Beginning with the fourth generation of
LTO, these tapes (which hold nearly 2.5TB of
compressed data for LTO- 6) come equipped
with an encryption algorithm that ensures
that your patients’ data is secure. Encrypting
data helps protect patient information from
many types of compromise, and by storing
it offline, you remove potential exposure to
malware or corruption.
The medical industry will always have the
need to protect patient information. With
an encrypted tape-based solution, storage
professionals and patients alike can take
comfort in knowing that their information is
safe and secure. MDT

Data security is a hot topic in the
healthcare industry. Healthcare network
providers have the difficult task of identifying the
correct technology to collect and store data all while
maintaining a secure network to communicate and
transmit the data.
It is important to not only consider the type of
technology healthcare networks utilize to collect data,
but also to consider the network features that must
support the safe transmission of that data. At Motorola
Solutions, a telecommunications solutions provider for
government and enterprise customers, network and
handset precautions encompass securing data at rest as
well as in motion. Securing data in motion has four key
functions—security and compliance, network assurance,
infrastructure management, and proximity awareness
By addressing each of these functions as well as selecting the correct technology from the start, healthcare
organizations can rest assured that they properly are
securing patients’ data. MDT
