Coming soon: A super shield for healthcare mobile apps

Think of it like Wonder Woman's bullet proof bracelets. Boxtone, fresh off an announcement with Motorola and Verizon at HIMSS2012 to offer security for Android phones, says it will in the next month roll out a new feature to all of its customers that automatically adds new security to any healthcare app. "Up to this point it's been too difficult and not securable for hospital IT to push mobility aggressively," said Joel Weinshank, BoxTone's director of marketing. The service will come out "sometime this quarter," Weinshank said.
