Valimail Recognized by Healthcare Informatics for Innovation in Data Security
SAN FRANCISCO, March 16, 2018 — Valimail, the world’s only provider of automated email authentication, has been selected by Healthcare Informatics as an Innovator Award winner, within the Data Security vendor division, for the company’s Valimail Enforce™ solution.
“When assessing security, you have to balance the ease with which a criminal can attack your organization, the damage that attack can cause, and how hard it is for a healthcare organization to implement the solution that can stop those attacks,” said Alexander García-Tobar, the CEO and co-founder of Valimail. “Impersonation attacks are the easiest for criminals to implement, and since email is also one of the primary ways that patient health information gets lost, companies need to look at email authentication to defend themselves from bad actors.”
Valimail Enforce addresses the ongoing operational challenges of email authentication by managing organizations’ ever-shifting email infrastructures and enabling IT staff to monitor and authorize senders with a single click. With a unique, patented set of technologies that automate configuration and management of the global DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) standard, Valimail is the only vendor to guarantee that its customers will get their DMARC records to an enforcement policy.
“We at Healthcare Informatics are proud for the third year in a row to recognize innovation among software solutions providers, alongside our recognition of patient care organizations, in our Provider Division,” said Mark Hagland, editor-in-chief of Healthcare Informatics. “Once again, we have turned to our Editorial Advisory Board members, who carefully assessed dozens of submissions, and determined winning vendor companies, like Valimail, in five key categories of importance to the IT leaders in U.S. patient care organizations.”
