Tresorit Joins the Fight against COVID-19 with Free Access to Remote Work Solution for Public Education and Healthcare Institutions

Today Tresorit, the leading end-to-end encrypted, zero-knowledge content collaboration platform (CCP) designed to safeguard the digital valuables of individuals and organizations with the highest classification in the cloud, announces the rollout of our free remote working solution for public education and healthcare institutions and professionals globally. 

As COVID-19 continues to impact our way of life, it becomes more important than ever to come together as a global community and find ways to support each other. We, at Tresorit, would like to do our part by giving back to the healthcare and educational institutions and professionals whose critical services have been hit the hardest by COVID-19.

COVID-19 has significantly changed and challenged the daily operations of both sectors, who are under extreme pressure to rapidly mobilize all their forces to ensure education and healthcare stay continuous for the communities they serve. Physical classrooms have suddenly shifted to remote learning campuses and healthcare institutions need to stabilize their operations to ensure that data is constantly available for medical personnel, while also protecting the privacy of their patients’ critical information.

Tresorit joins the fight against COVID-19 with free licenses for healthcare and educational institutions to help them continue their crucial work during this period of disruption and uncertainty – with a secure, easily deployable, and compliant platform so that their vital contributions to society can continue safely and uninterrupted in the cloud.

A COVID-19 Ready Remote Working Solution for Healthcare Workers and Institutions  

The COVID-19 outbreak is putting our critical healthcare services under strain, at a time when they desperately need to share information at speed while treating patients, managing test results, and researching vaccines and treatments. Now more so than ever, any disruption to healthcare operations significantly impacts saving patients’ lives, as was the case with the cyber-attack on Brno Hospital in the Czech Republic earlier in March. The exchange of diagnostic tests, information about confirmed cases and other types of medical data must flow freely without ever compromising patient privacy, regulatory compliance and other essential elements of ethical care and research.

Tresorit is a HIPAA compliant, end-to-end encrypted, zero-knowledge content collaboration platform that empowers medical professionals and institutions with an ultra-secure way to store and share protected health information (PHI) and medical records with the highest classification in the cloud. Our secure file storage and sharing service helps healthcare professionals and researchers manage files and collaborate within departments and with external vendors in an end-to-end encrypted environment. By using Tresorit, healthcare professionals can access medical records and files from any browser, even from mobile devices, as well as replace insecure email attachments and other file transfer methods with end-to-end encrypted links and powerful control options.

A Remote, Ultra-Secure, and Collaborative Campus for Educational Institutions and Research Facilities

As schools and university campuses all over the world close to help slow the spread of COVID-19, educators, institutions, and students are plagued by an ever-increasing amount of mass disruptions to learning. Educational institutions globally are scrambling to make the switch to remote learning environments to ensure the future of education and that of their learners is not further impacted by this disruption.

Making the switch to virtual classrooms and campuses while implementing secure online collaboration solutions from one day to the next has been an immense challenge for educators and the IT administrators of these institutions.

Educational institutions also manage large amounts of data that qualify as PII or personally identifiable information, which has to be managed in the most secure way to ensure compliance with national laws that protect the privacy of children and students. This data, coupled with educational institutions’ limited and less robust security systems, have seen them become an increasingly lucrative target for hackers, ransomware attacks and data breaches. These attacks on US schools and colleges tripled in 2019 alone.

Tresorit’s end-to-end encrypted, zero-knowledge content collaboration platform’s technology eases the transition educators and students have to make as a result of this pandemic, from in-person to online classrooms, and ensures students continue their education.

Our file storage and sharing features empower educators and students with access to their educational material and files from anywhere. Frictionless collaboration, quick deployment, and ease of use all ensure that educators, institutions, and students can upload and access assignments, feedback, grades, and educational resources remotely while maintaining administrative operations that are ultra-secure.
