HEALTHvision Security


No site is 100% impenetrable.  However, every reasonable measure has been taken to ensure the safety of our sites and our client’s information.  There are three primary areas in which we employ strict security.

(1)   Firewall protection

(2)   Data protection

(3)   Application protection


Firewall Protection:

Most hackers don’t just guess the passwords, but find other loopholes into the site to gain access.  The servers hosting the web sites are behind Firewall One which is an industry standard firewall created by Checkpoint.  This firewall ensures that only that which is necessary is used to connect to the websites and that they are used in an appropriate manner.  This is the primary mechanism, protecting HEALTHvision servers against hackers. 

Data Protection:

Other components such as PGP and 128-bit SSL or secure socket layer are also used.  These technologies enable encryption of transmission between the end user and the server so that the data being transmitted cannot be intercepted and read by unauthorized recipients.  In practice, this is used in personalization when the consumer fills out demographic information and anytime personally identifiable information is being transmitting between HEALTHvision and a third party.

Application Protection:

From an application perspective, all sensitive areas within the site (e.g. administration capabilities) are password protected.  This ensures that only authorized users are able to upload and publish content.  A second level of security is also employed, requiring each published document to be “approved” by an authorized user before any authored content is displayed on the site.  Site administrators are encouraged to change these passwords on a regular basis.
