What is Secure Fax?
Business needs for data privacy, confidentiality, and controlled access have been intensified by an environment of frequent data breaches, and such governmental regulations as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLBA), and Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS 140-2). Biscom's Secure Fax is a new solution, leveraging Biscom's secure file transfer software to encrypt faxes at rest, and applying the security benefits and auditing capabilities of SFT to traditional methods of sending and receiving faxes. As with secure file transfers, secure faxes use AD single sign-on, are encrypted at rest and in transit, and can be delivered directly and securely to an email address rather than a fax number.
How It Works
With Biscom Secure Fax, sent and received documents are transferred to Biscom’s secure file transfer solution and the data is robustly secured end-to-end. Documents sent and received are automatically encrypted in transit and at rest, using NIST-approved AES 256-bit encryption.To activate Biscom Secure Fax, fax senders simply specify an email address rather than a fax number for the delivery to be sent. Recipients are notified of a secure delivery via email with an embedded link with which to be authenticate and download received faxes. The sender receives a confirmation email that the files have been received and accessed. A granular reporting and audit trail is standard.
Why you should choose Biscom’s Secure Fax
"Just meeting the compliance goals pays for itself in the time it’s saved me. If we didn’t use Biscom secure file transfer, I’d have to create some kind of audit trial or guarantee that we’re meeting compliance when we send an encrypted document.”
