Cloud storage in the Healthcare Industry
Handling patient data responsibly is a high priority in our times, when new digital threats emerge every day. At the same time, the progressing digitalization increasingly demands that data is processed in an efficient and flexible way. Cloud storage services, such as Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive, provide a solution for this problem of flexibility and efficiency, by making your data available in their data centers. However, especially with sensitive data, precautions have to be taken. You are giving your sensitive data out of your own hands and, as a consequence, you can never know for sure who can access it. Additional client-side encryption solves this security problem and is imperative when working with sensitive information, such as patient histories and health data.
Cloud? Yes. But What About Security?
With Boxcryptor we solve the problem of data protection in the cloud, by encrypting all files right on your device with the most modern, technical standards. This makes sure that only encrypted data reaches your cloud storage provider. However, if you want to share files with a colleague or an insurance, you can do so with just a couple of clicks, because Boxcryptor comes with its very own access management system.
The Principle of Boxcryptor
Boxcryptor adds end-to-end encryption with zero knowledge standard to your cloud. Simply put, it makes sure that no one but you can access your data. Not even us, since we do not know your password. That way, even sensitive data can be stored in the cloud, in compliance with privacy laws, since no one but your authenticated users can access it. With Boxcryptor, the cloud becomes even more secure than your own hosted servers. Data privacy and server maintanance are outsourced to specialists. As a consequence, valuable working time of your employees is freed up for the important things.
