Data Security for Healthcare

Fortanix helps healthcare organizations secure sensitive patient and medical data, ensure privacy and compliance to regulations like HIPAA. Fortanix protects keys and data regardless of where they reside.


Healthcare organizations hold vast repositories of data. Ability to generate value entirely depends on how healthcare organizations can effectively unlock the power of data to innovate and deliver better health outcomes. With patient records being stored electronically, there is also increased threat of data breaches, malware, and other malicious attacks. Medical and patient records are used by multiple parties including hospitals for treatment, insurance providers for transactions and drug manufacturing companies for research. This means that the data is transmitted from different endpoints and across different networks with different levels of security. Protecting the healthcare data, securing this data for privacy preserving analytics and secure collaboration between different entities is critical.

Fortanix offers multiple solutions to cater to the data security needs of the Healthcare sector. Healthcare organizations can also use Fortanix Confidential Computing Manager to run applications and data within secure enclaves and use this data for multiparty analytics for better patient outcomes and find cure for diseases. Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM) provides built-in HSM, Key Management and Tokenization capabilities with flexible consumption options. They can now secure data and keys regardless of where it resides.

What we do

Data Security Manager (DSM)

Fortanix provides a Data Security as a Service (DSaaS) platform with integrated hardware security module (HSM), key management, encryption, shared secrets, and tokenization capabilities.
Fortanix provides an integrated FIPS 140-2 level 3 HSM and manages legacy HSMs you already have, making their keys manageable and accessible through Fortanix. Applications and databases standardize on a single source of cryptographic services, and security teams get a single pane of glass for management.
Fortanix helps substitute tokens for sensitive data using REST APIs to achieve privacy compliance. This helps eliminate the link to sensitive data and protect against data breaches.

Confidential Computing Manager (CCM)

Confidential Computing is a new technology that allows organizations to unlock the value of their most private data while keeping it more safe and secure. Organizations can now protect data and applications in use by running them within secure enclaves.
When the data runs within trusted execution environments, the access to the data is controlled and the data can be accessed only to trusted parties.
The Confidential Computing technology developed by Fortanix, combined with the data at rest protection offered by Data Security Manager, provides healthcare organizations with the ability to protect both e-PHI data, applications and the intellectual property contained in AI algorithms, even on untrusted infrastructure.

Enable secure migration to cloud with single cloud ready solution for encryption
Fortanix manages encryption across on-premises, hybrid, and multiple public cloud environments, enabling customers to provide consistent data protection and migrate apps to any cloud environment. Healthcare organizations can now reduce the cost of complexity of data security by consolidating or replacing multiple encryptions, HSMs, key management, tokenization, and secrets management systems with a single integrated system with standardized cryptographic interfaces.
Apply Tokenization to achieve HIPAA and other regulatory compliance
Use Tokenization to comply with HIPAA regulations by substituting electronically protected health information (ePHI) and non-public personal information (NPPI) with a tokenized value.
Get complete control and visibility into sensitive health data
Centralized intuitive web-based user interface for management. Role-based access control (RBAC) for users, applications and groups with segregation of duties. Comprehensive tamper-proof audit logs to track all activity, including administration, authentication, access, and key operations.
Continuous protection for data and applications in use.
Confidential computing protects data and applications by running them in secure enclaves that isolate the data and code to prevent unauthorized access, even when the compute infrastructure is compromised. This can help healthcare organizations to keep the data protected always, even when in use, protect intellectual property and even use the data for multiparty analytics for better patient outcomes and treatment.
Use the scale of cloud without compromising security
Confidential computing powered by secure enclaves allows a variety of enterprise use cases to run on the cloud without compromising the security.
