Voltage Security to Protect Online Communication on New AMA Web-based Platform
June 7, 2010– Palo Alto, CA – Voltage Security, Inc., a global leader in end-to-end data protection, and the American Medical Association (AMA), the nation’s largest physician organization, today announced that Voltage will provide secure email communication on the AMA’s new health information platform for physicians. The AMA platform will enable physicians to assess and meet their clinical and practice needs and will provide physicians access to information, products and services with a single, secure sign-on. The platform, which will launch nationwide later this year, is currently being beta tested in Michigan in collaboration with the Michigan State Medical Society.
The AMA platform will feature Voltage SecureMail, powered by the Voltage SecureMail Network, a SaaS delivery model that makes Voltage accessible to anyone with an Internet browser. Voltage SecureMail will encrypt and protect email communications sent between physicians, patients and the medical community. Voltage secure email helps members of the medical community meet federal and state healthcare privacy regulations such as HIPAA and HITECH.
“Email is increasingly becoming the acceptable form of communication between physicians and patients and there is nothing more important than protecting private, personal medical information as it is electronically shared,” said Sathvik Krishnamurthy, president and CEO of Voltage Security. “Voltage has a strong track-record of providing easy-to-use secure email to the medical community, and we are thrilled to expand this through our new relationship with the AMA.”
“Online privacy and security are of utmost importance to physicians and patients,” said AMA Board Member Joseph M. Heyman, M.D. “Voltage is a leader in secure online communication, and users of the AMA platform will have the peace of mind knowing that their information will always be private.”
