Byram Healthcare Selects Voltage
SecureMail for HIPAA Compliance

Voltage Security Products Featuring Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) Provide HIPAA Compliance for Leading Medical Supplies Provider

BALTIMORE, MD—HIPAA Summit — April 7, 2005 —Voltage Security, Inc., a global leader in enterprise privacy management, and Byram Healthcare Centers, Inc., a leading provider of medical supplies to patients in the home, announced today that Byram has selected Voltage SecureMail™ to help meet HIPAA regulations by  protecting  private patient information in email. Byram employees in sales, acquisitions, billing, and customer service are using Voltage SecureMail to communicate securely via email with doctors, referral organizations, medical educators and other business partners.

“Voltage is playing a critical role in meeting HIPAA requirements. We evaluated several secure email solutions from various vendors and Voltage won out because of its cost advantage and the functionality offered by Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) technology,” said Richard Entrup, Chief Information Officer at Byram. “The Voltage sales team was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and that helped seal the deal for Voltage.”

“HIPAA compliance is a strong driver in today’s market.  Medical organizations want the convenience and efficiency of email when communicating with doctors, patients and billing organizations. And, they must protect the privacy of patient data. Using Voltage SecureMail with easy-to-use IBE encryption technology is a simple but powerful way to meet these needs,” said Wasim Ahmad, vice president of marketing for Voltage Security, Inc.

Voltage Security products and services feature breakthrough technology called Identity-Based Encryption or IBE. IBE greatly simplifies the process of protecting private digital communications by using a common identity, such as an email address, as a public key. Unlike traditional PKI encryption systems, with IBE no certificates need to be managed and no pre-enrollment in the system is required. Voltage solutions typically require virtually no end-user training, can be easily managed by central administration and can provide policy-based encryption from the “edge of the network” for a totally automated solution.
