Texas-based Hypori showed a mobile thin client at last week’s MHealth Summit in Washington DC that can provide secure remote access to sensitive data from any mobile device.
 
The virtual mobile infrastructure (VMI) based approach is said to ensure HIPAA data stay secure on the server just like VDI, with no electronic health record (EHR) apps or data at rest. The VMI platform, allows organisations to extend existing, approved teleworking policies to mobile devices while ensuring HIPAA compliance.
 
Hypori co-founder and CEO Justin Marston said a VMI-based approach secured mobility in healthcare. "With our thin client, medical professionals can now access data from both healthcare providers and personally owned devices while minimising the risk of HIPAA-governed content leakage," he said.
 
The VMI platform can reduce risk to due to lost or broken mobile devices in hospitals by centralising EHR data away from mobile endpoints. Hypori's Ace platform provides user authentication and TLS 1.2 encryption for data in transit, securing both HIPAA-regulated and commercially sensitive data across contract research organisations, medical professionals and patients.
 
The Ace platform meets HIPAA security requirements that include access control, audit control, authentication, endpoint use and security, integrity, transmission security, and more. The platform supports multiple platforms and seamless integration with off-the-shelf mobile apps and enterprise mobility management technologies; the scalable VMI can help organisations bridge the gap between mobile productivity and security.
 
Founded in 2011, Hypori is headquartered in Austin, Texas, and backed by Green Visor Capital as well as numerous private equity investors.
