Fax or Email for Secure Document Delivery?
As cyberattackers continuously find new ways to compromise personal information, organizations must use document delivery systems with adequate encryption to secure endpoints and encrypt sensitive information that is both in transit and at rest. Fax remains to be one of the most trusted document delivery methods available today, and its key role in healthcare data security best practices is the reason why the online fax market is projected to be worth $2.4 billion by 2022.
By leveraging the security of fax technology with the scalability of the cloud, and faxing via the internet, organizations can exchange sensitive information faster and more securely. Ideal for the healthcare industry, fax can securely transport unstructured data while complying with government-mandated regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). While fax can seem like a dirty word to many, newer delivery systems embrace the concept of fax to deliver rich document content with modern-day secure transmission technologies.
