FairWarning Recognized as High Performing Vendor for COVID-19 Response by KLAS

Clearwater, Fla. – August 3, 2020 – FairWarning, the proven leader in protecting the privacy of people and organizations by securing their most sensitive data, has been recognized as a High Performing Vendor for its patient privacy monitoring solution in response to the COVID-19 crisis by KLAS Research. The company achieved a rating of 8.5 out of 9.0, one of only two vendors recognized with this rating, the highest score in this report, which was determined through a customer-based KLAS survey. The survey measured 174 healthcare organizations’ satisfaction with 58 vendors for technology mobilization and customer relationships.

Following the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, FairWarning launched its COVID-19 reporting module to track COVID-19 patients and associated records access to help hospitals monitor anomalous behaviors associated with data breaches. As cited by the KLAS research, customers reported that throughout the growing crisis, they received strong executive communication and rapid release patient monitoring functionality.

“Our designation as a High Performing Vendor by KLAS is a direct testament of our company’s ability to innovate and provide customers with the most advanced privacy monitoring solutions, no matter how quickly the healthcare industry is changing,” said Ed Holmes, CEO of FairWarning. “At the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, hospitals found themselves in a chaotic state of fast-moving communications about patient data, which meant that having the ability to share patient data securely and monitor for records access was even more vital than ever before. At FairWarning, we are relentless in how we provide our customers the best privacy and security tools to manage the full lifecycle of security incidents, so we’re honored to be recognized as a company that customers have full confidence in.”

Within two weeks, FairWarning’s COVID-19 module was expanded to a customizable dashboard so hospitals could review patient data in a single view to maximize efficiency during the pandemic. A prompt deployment of this technology demonstrates FairWarning’s leading position as a provider of advanced Patient Privacy Intelligence. The company supports more than 8,500 facilities worldwide and 35% of the U.S. healthcare market in protecting their patient information and providing higher levels of data security.
