Message Encryption

To ensure message confidentiality, integrity and authenticity at the highest level for HIPAA compliance, HipLink uses the best possible mechanism, Transport Layer Security (TLS). TLS is recognized as the security standard in the enterprise community.

Using TLS, HipLink smartphone apps support a wide variety of bit-rate encryption options that include 256-bit AES encryption standards configurable by the administrator. One of the more interesting features HipLink has developed by using this standard is a "single session" handshake process. The security features apply to all phases of message delivery, both messages sent to the phone and responses sent back, as well as data at rest.

Security and Remote Device Management

In addition to client applications, there are several features for Remote Device Management from the HipLink administrative interface that are built in the HipLink Mobile App. An admin can take action to disable access, delete data and enforce General Policy for all of their Users.
