BLUE BELL, Pa. -- Fiberlink(ģ), the leader in software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for secure mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM), today unveiled MaaS360 for Healthcare, a standard configuration option designed specifically to meet the needs of healthcare providers. Through a single, unified view of policy and status reporting across tablets and smartphones, MaaS360 helps CIOs identify and manage the complex challenges of mobile health initiatives and data security risks to meet strict HIPAA compliance requirements.

MaaS360 provides surgeons, clinicians and administrative staff with secure access to information systems and critical applications.

"Healthcare providers operate in a highly regulated environment. And with more and more doctors and clinical staff accessing patient data remotely, mobile devices present an increased threat for data breaches, especially if a device is lost or stolen," said Jim Sheward, CEO at Fiberlink. "MaaS360 provides the essential technology healthcare CIOs need to control the rapidly growing use of mobile devices, which can compromise the integrity of sensitive information."
