The Fast Future of Encryption in HealthcareZettaset CEO Tim Reilly on Filling Gaps in Rapidly Changing Landscape
In mere weeks, the healthcare industry was able to leapfrog ahead years in its digital transformation. But at a price to data security, which now faces new kinds of exposure. Zettaset CEO Tim Reilly discusses these vulnerabilities and the future of encryption in the healthcare sector.
Encryption was a healthcare challenge prior to the pandemic, Reilly points out. And the advent of a remote workforce and new telehealth initiatives have only exacerbated the issue.
"Data security more than ever is exposed," Reilly says. "And encryption needs to be there. But it wasn't seen as a priority before, and it definitely isn't now."
In an interview about encryption in healthcare, Reilly discusses:
- The data security impact of rapid digital transformation;
- The future of encryption in healthcare;
- Why 2020 is a "breakout year" for Zettaset.
Reilly brings more than 25 years of successful public and private experience in the high-tech industry filling key operational roles within product line business units and venture capital funded companies through all stages of growth. During his time at Zettaset, the company has successfully grown its software-defined encryption portfolio to provide a comprehensive data protection solution across all physical, virtual and cloud environments. Prior to joining Zettaset, he was VP Finance & Operations at Trapeze Networks, where he helped build the company into a leading provider of Wireless LAN equipment which was later acquired by Juniper Networks.
