The Advantages of a Secure RDP Server:
The ability to work remotely has presented increased challenges to security. Out-of-the-box, Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) software is not inherently HIPAA compliant, and should not be used to handle sensitive PHI. This is especially so for customers who require HIPAA compliance. Now VM Racks is providing a secure solution for working remotely, with HIPAA compliant, Windows RDP Server. Users in multiple locations simply login through a virtual private network (VPN) and a local interface on their computer and are connected through an encrypted channel to a centralized file management system to securely store and access PHI. The specially configured, RDP server utilizes secure ports to encrypt data, both in transit and at rest, without the troublesome latency issues caused by heavy network traffic.
