Leading the Way to HIMSS16 on Data Protection

Data Protection

We are excited to bring you this series from intrepid Healthcare on #HIMSS16. We will bring you some of the companies or organizations that we feel really do a great job participating in conferences like HIMSS. We will share their plans and show-off what we feel is unique about their approaches to HIMSS. 

OUR GUEST  Michael Waksman, CEO of Jetico, joined us to talk to us about their innovative data protection and encryption solutions and also about their plans for HIMSS16.

Specifically, we discuss the following details on the current state of data protection with Michael in this episode:

  1. (5:25) Data protection is now a critical topic for healthcare providers. Why?
  2. (7:57) What are the obstacles in adopting a data protection solution?
  3. (9:59) What does the competition look like in this space?
  4. (10:27) How is your solution differentiated from competitors?
  5. (15:43) What are you going to showcase in your booth, #129? Will we actually be able to see how it works hands-on?
  6. (16:36) So is BestCrypt the name of the product?
  7. (17:36) Is it possible to do a pilot project with your solution?
  8. (18:24) What else can we expect to see from you at #HIMSS16?
