Clearwater, FL – March 30, 2016 – FairWarning, Inc., the leading provider of application security intelligence solutions in healthcare, today announced the release of its data protection and governance solution for customers using Office 365™. Business-minded professionals in any regulated industry can use FairWarning for cloud-based applications to seamlessly safeguard sensitive investor, consumer, patient and customer information stored or transmitted through Office 365, as well as comply with PCI, HIPAA and other industry regulations.
FairWarning’s support for Office 365 is an easy, affordable and efficient way to leverage event monitoring files to see, and act upon, what is happening to data stored or transmitted through Office 365. It turns event monitoring files into human readable text for the everyday business user. From Outlook® to OneDrive™, with FairWarning for cloud-based applications, business-minded professionals can monitor, manage, audit and investigate what is happening to their most sensitive data across the full Office 365 suite.

According to Barry Runyon, research vice president for Gartner, in the October 2015 Market Guide for Cloud Service Providers to Healthcare Delivery Organizations report, “Despite the general lack of agreement on cloud security standards, healthcare providers will increasingly adopt cloud services that involve protected healthcare information (PHI) to keep pace with the IT infrastructure, system and support requirements of the real-time healthcare system, and to remain competitive in an industry that is under unprecedented pressure to transform itself. This transformation will rely heavily on IT, and the cloud will play an important part.”
“We are seeing many of our customers, specifically in healthcare, adopt Office 365 and other cloud-based applications,” said Kurt J. Long, founder and CEO, FairWarning. “By providing data protection and governance support for these cloud-based applications, we are delivering expanded value across the enterprise. FairWarning for Office 365 is super easy to use and makes complicated information really easy to understand. Customers can seamlessly roll this solution into their existing security, privacy and compliance platform to understand and take appropriate actions to who is doing what with their proprietary and sensitive data.”
