US Army Medical Division using Pocket PC with Pointsec encryption
Posted on 30-Mar-2005 22:14. | Tags Filed under: News.



Pointsec will provide endpoint security technology for the U.S. Army's Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4) as part of a large deployment of Windows Mobile Pocket PC in the field around the world.

The MC4 will work with IT products and services provider Insight Public Sector to deploy over 11,000 HP branded Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC handheld devices with Pointsec for Pocket PC encryption technology to its medical staff. These devices will be used by Army medical professionals all over the world, especially in the combat situations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The company says that with mobile medical teams treating soldiers in hostile environments, patient information must be readily available, easily transferable to treatment centers and absolutely secure.

MC4's mission is to eliminate unreliable paper-based systems and replace them with an automated medical digitization system for soldier care. MC4 is taking the technology of telemedicine and other existing automation systems in medical and support facilities and integrating for combat support. MC4 links healthcare providers, medical diagnostic systems, information command and control, and medical command and control systems at all echelons.

Pointsec's FIPS-certified encryption software ensures all or selected parts of a mobile device's data can be encrypted in real time and can only be accessed by authenticated users. Pointsec's software ensures encryption is performed according to an organization's security policies without requiring action on the part of end users, and its exclusive "on-the-fly" encryption method results in virtually no performance difference for the device.
