During November and December 2015, the Company repurchased 749,123 shares of its common stock for approximately $11.2 million under its share repurchase program. Therefore, these share repurchases will more than offset the number of shares issued in the T24 transaction.
Presently, On-premises deployment type has a significant presence in the email encryption market. There is a huge demand for on-premises among organizations due to security risk in cloud. In the coming years, the cloud deployment is expected to take over the on-premises deployment type with the development of technologies and advanced software to secure data stored in cloud.
The email encryption market is increasing its presence in various industry verticals, such as healthcare and BFSI. These industries are adopting email encryption solutions so as to protect their customer's confidential information from hacking and theft. BFSI has already adopted email encryption as the organizations in this industry needs to protect close information, such as credit and debit card numbers and details, financial transaction details, financial details of customers, and bank account number of customers. This has encouraged organizations in the BFSI sector to adopt email encryption. It is expected that the adoption of email encryption in the retail sector and IT and telecom will increase to share private information and financial information with client without the risk of loss and theft.
At present, North America is adopting email encryption at a faster pace due to the widespread implementation of technologies, such as cloud and BYOD. The adoption of technologies has encouraged users in North America to adopt email encryption to secure confidential data being accessed through personal devices.
There has been a rise in the number of theft and loss of personal devices, such as smartphones and tablets, which in turn leads to the organizational data loss and misuse.
The adoption of email encryption is quite expensive for SMBs as the solutions needs timely upgradation and IT support, which restricts the implementation of email encryption solutions among users. Moreover, the organizations demand security solutions that can help them in securing their data from theft and loss while communicating with partners or external parties. The mandatory compliance with certain industry specific regulations, such as HIPPA and PCI DSS further encourages the implementation of encryption software. However, the adoption of cloud-based encryption solution is expected to be widespread among SMBs due to data security, scalability, and relatively shortened upfront cost.
The lack of knowledge regarding its usage and advantages is restricting the adoption of email encryption solutions. The email encryption market is a consolidated market with big players, such as HP, Symantec, McAfee, Sophos, TrendMicro, Cisco, Proofpoint, Entrust, Zix Corporation, and Microsoft. These players adopted various strategies such as new product developments, mergers, partnerships, collaborations and business expansion to cater to the needs of the email encryption market
HIPAA Phase 2 Audits Expected in Early 2016
posted on: Friday, December 18, 2015
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently stated that, in early 2016, it will launch Phase 2 of its audit program designed to measure compliance with HIPAA’s privacy, security and breach notification requirements. That statement was included in OCR’s response to two reports issued by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) recommending, among other actions, that OCR fully implement a permanent HIPAA audit program and strengthen its follow-up of breaches of patient health information.
OCR is working to improve its ability to capture and track corrective actions taken in response to an OCR investigation, and to search for and track an entity’s compliance history, including information relating to breaches affecting fewer than 500 individuals. OCR investigators will be required to check for prior breaches by covered entities and their business associates when commencing new investigations. Repeated investigations could make an entity a more likely candidate for an on-site visit.
In its Phase 2 program, which will include both covered entities and business associates, OCR will target common noncompliance areas and “test the efficacy of the combination of desk reviews of policies as well as on-site reviews[.]” Covered entities and business associates should also, therefore, ensure that their HIPAA policies and procedures (including relevant training) are current and robust, and prepare for an on-site visit by OCR.
OCR will be issuing additional outreach and educational materials. Covered entities and their business associates should watch for forthcoming guidance on compliance and OCR’s audit protocol
Dropbox, looking to enterprise, pulls two mobile apps. Dropbox Inc., under under pressure to accelerate its push into the enterprise in order to justify the $10 billion valuation investors placed on it two years ago, announced that it was shuttering two free mobile apps. The Journal’s Douglas MacMillan reports that Mailbox, an email app for smartphones, will shut down in February and Carousel, an app for storing and sharing photos, will close at the end of March.

At the commercial level, the team focused on the large national plans and we expect feedback on these in 2016. Securing additional coverage by the two remaining MAX and by the top 5 national health plans represents a very important growth driver for the wound care business in 2016.
Telco ,help me justify the last 2 months metrics.. Maybe they should of stopped the acquisitions long ago...I know the drop in activity is partly because of the one dropped trading platform ..
