Enhanced Information Security
Patient data contains sensitive information that clinicians can't afford to compromise if a device gets lost or stolen. Mobile devices used in healthcare need to use the latest data encryption features to maximize the security of patient health information. Windows 8 Pro has a number of enterprise-level built-in security features. BitLocker Drive Encryption, for example, encrypts the entire hard drive on a Windows 8 PC, while BitLocker To Go can also encrypt data stored on a USB flash drive. Windows 8 devices also support a variety of enterprise-level security applications that may be integrated into the BIOS settings.
