MCLEAN, Va., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TerraWi, one of the nation's leaders in Secure Data Mobility Management (SDMM), will launch its groundbreaking Mobile-Loc 1.2 technology at the HIMSS13 conference in New Orleans this week. TerraWi will be exhibiting and demonstrating the new 1.2 version of Mobile-Loc (booth #475) in partnership with Halock Security Labs, a leader in information security (Booth #473).
TerraWi has created a new paradigm by developing Mobile Security powered by location. The company's approach to delivery of secure data on any device is unique by virtualizing access to data by extending its secure container from the data center out to any mobile device.
"Mobile-Loc 1.2 is location-aware, providing geo-fenced access to Clouds, dynamic entitlements and data access," says Ryan Walters, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TerraWi. "Quite simply, we don't secure the device, we secure the data. We are focused on protecting data in use on any mobile device on any network."
TerraWi uses Dynamic Authentication tied to Geographic Proximity and Biometrics to determine access to the secure cloud/data center, which data elements can be accessed (i.e., a single file within a folder), and control over what actions can be taken on those data elements (i.e., read, write, change or view). Defining the geographic boundaries of where data should be used and accessed, TerraWi ensures that data is not left vulnerable on a protected mobile device when it travels outside the geo-fenced boundary.
Mobile-Loc 1.2 is proving to be a critical product in the health care industry. TerraWi's Secure Data Mobility Management (SDMM) provides solutions to challenges facing hospitals and their IT departments with regard to the new HIPAA regulations, time, security and control of their data. With penalties in the recent HIPAA Omnibus rising to $1.5 million per violation, protecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is more critical than ever. TerraWi's patent-pending geo-fencing technology helps reduce exposure to data theft and inadvertent disclosures associated with residual PII left on devices after initial access.
