Egress for Healthcare
See the solutions we provide for healthcare, and hear about how both public and private healthcare organizations use Egress to secure confidential and sensitive patient data.
Protecting patients’ sensitive data
Our intelligent email security protects patient data for some of the biggest global healthcare companies and the UK's National Health Service (NHS) - the largest employer of highly skilled professionals in the world.
The Egress platform enables healthcare professionals to securely share and collaborate on sensitive information. In the UK, this works regardless of third-party access to NHSmail and NHS SFTP.
As a result, heathcare workers of all types can focus on delivering the highest standard of care, confident that they are complying with data protection requirements, including HIPAA, GDPR and NHS information governance, and are protecting their patients' welfare.

What our customers say
Without Egress, we would have had to buy at least five different systems to meet our information sharing requirements – so it has provided a huge cost saving to us as an organization.
This control and auditing functionality has enabled us to remain compliant with the NHS IG policies, which is a key part of ensuring the ongoing success of our partnership with the NHS.
Using Egress Protect, our staff can now securely share a variety of information simply and efficiently. Consequently, they can focus on the real task in hand: providing the highest quality care and medical service for our patients.
As a leading healthcare provider, Epiphany handles a significant amount of patient data, via both inbound and outbound communications.
Having evaluated several solutions, it was Egress' platform capability and ease of use that won the day.
“We needed something universal, that encrypts emails, that everyone could be a part of, and that didn’t require us to change our email system. We were also looking for a new FTP site. Finding a system that delivered both made me look like an all-star,” said Chad McQuarrie, Cloud Support Engineer.
