To protect mobile devices of healthcare providers and staff against device, network, phishing and malicious application threats, healthcare organizations should implement Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) solutions like Zimperium zIPS. zIPS provides persistent, on-device protection for mobile devices and data in a manner analogous to next-generation antivirus on traditional endpoints. As such, it automatically addresses the HIPAA endpoint requirements listed above.
Mobile apps containing and processing patient data must be secured against attacks as well, even on patient-owned devices. Zimperium has a solution for that use case too, Zimperium zDefend.
