FrugalBrothers GFI FaxMaker Case Study

This is the video and text from my recent GFI FaxMaker case study. In this video, I share a bit about my background, and my experience with GFI FaxMaker 2015.

I was a chief information officer for a mortgage company in Indianapolis we were looking to build a fax server and doing my research I came across GFI. The product was GFI FaxMaker and that’s where I began my relationship with GFI.

The primary value of FaxMaker is the ability to bridge older technologies such as stand-alone fax machines with newer technologies such as email, That’s really where that value comes from. As far as the easy use for the product as well. One of the cool things about FaxMaker is it works with really any email server as for SMTP, so it doesn’t really require any type of special integration work it works with all of them just fine.

Compliance is really huge. A lot of organisations have to comply with what’s called PCI DSS, for credit card security and HIPAA for medical records and there are certain documents you cannot send securely unless you send it with fax. Faxing also allows you to get an accurate record of when the document was sent and received. When personal faxes, email and file-sharing have reduced that a lot but organizations still really require faxing, especially manufacturing the medical industry, legal finance etc… There are certain documents that have to be sent and received securely.

The flexibility of FaxMaker allows it to be virtualized for example, it allows us to work with the old analog phone lines, digital circuits, hosted communications as well. Those technical benefits alone make FaxMaker a winner for just about any type of installation. The whole dynamics of the software, the flexibility of FaxMaker, the ability to scale it from a smallest install to multi-site operations. The ability to offer FaxMaker both hosted, on-premise and a hybrid solution as well. If there’s really anybody that needs a fax solution I can help.

With the economic benefit of FaxMaker is that it saves companies time because people aren’t having to run back and forth to fax machines. It saves them on things like fax machines and consumables, toner and paper. It saves them on having all these fax machines sitting around the office and the ability to print and fax from your desktop saves a lot of employees time.

Faxing In The Healthcare Industry – HIPAA Compliance

The security provision of HIPAA demands that healthcare providers take reasonable care to protect the confidentiality of protected healthcare information (also known as PHI).

Traditional fax machines don’t qualify, making network fax servers the only way to safely and securely transmit confidential patient data.

And that isn’t the only advantage of using a fax server in your healthcare business! Watch our quick video to find out more about faxing in the healthcare industry.

Strategies for boosting your practice’s information immunity

Introduction

Every day, viruses – along with worms, spyware, Trojans, bots, rootkits and other malicious intruders – infect millions of computers and shut down businesses large and small all over the world. Medical practices are not immune to these threats and their ensuing data breaches.

Rich repositories of personal, clinical and financial data, combined with relatively modest information management capabilities, make medical practices prime candidates for numerous cyber threats, from hacking to computer viruses. These threats will likely be more widespread as practice management systems increase in sophistication, patient information becomes more connected through electronic health records and health information exchanges and health data became more accessible as practices increase their use of tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.

GFI FaxMaker™ and HIPAA compliance

Fax server technology is a secure method of communicating and is simple and affordable way to assist healthcare organizations in becoming HIPAA compliant.

Introduction

The U.S. Congress recognized the need for national patient record privacy standards in 1996 and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was enacted. The law included provisions designed to improve efficiency and reduce costs for health care businesses by encouraging electronic transactions, but it also required new safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of that information. In November 1999, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published proposed regulations to guarantee patients new rights and protections against the misuse or disclosure of their health records.

Why You Need to Consider Having Layered Security within the Organization

Not everyone understands that managed_security_layered_approach_clip_image002network security isn’t just about one specific issue. As a result, many end up not taking the required action to secure their networks. Some businesses believe that investing in an antivirus solution will cover every base.  Some wouldn’t even go that far as they’d think that a good firewall can prevent anything bad from entering the business network. If only they knew how wrong they are.
