Diversinet to Secure AirStrip mHealth App Suite Messaging with mobiSecure SDK

Diversinet Corporation signed a licensing agreement with AirStrip Technologies, a developer of mobile healthcare technology. This agreement will see Diversinet's patented mobiSecure SDK enable ultra-secure messaging in AirStrip's mHealth application suite.

This integration of technology will allow AirStrip customers in the military, government and commercial sectors to comply with rigorous federal security requirements as Diversinet's encryption technology recently received Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In fact, Diversinet's mHealth platform is the first with built-in security of this level, which exceeds even HIPAA requirements.

As such, the mobiSecure SDK allows healthcare organizations to develop HIPAA-compliant solutions with military-grade security for all consumer mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. This allows mobiSecure to accommodate bring your own device (BYOD) deployments, allowing medical professionals to communicate personal health information to patients and other professionals securely from their personal device.

Recently, the SDK also received other enhancements which improve the speed of deployment for enterprise-wide mobile health solutions.

"AirStrip set the standard in the industry by being the first to receive FDA clearance for its device-agnostic mobile patient monitoring applications. We are again blazing a trail by being the first to deliver ultra-secure protections as part of our enterprise-wide solutions," said AirStrip CEO Alan Portela in a statement. "The FIPS 140-2 validation signals to our customers that we will continue to meet increasingly stringent government and industry requirements to protect the storage and transmission of sensitive healthcare data — safely connecting patients and physicians across the care continuum."

Diversinet released the latest version of its MobiSecure mobile healthcare platform with 36 new features. MobiSecure 4.5 boasts such features as: app wakeup, enabling apps to wake up a device in order to issue an alert; remote data wipe, allowing a device to be erased of all data remotely if lost or stolen; and a connection indicator that shows network status and the ability to select from a drop-down list of unlimited length.
