Encryption: Securing Your Digital Recordings

data security

Data security is a critical element for all businesses in today’s digital landscape. As attackers become more sophisticated, businesses need to ensure they take steps to protect their data from increasingly aggressive attacks. 

Olympus takes data security seriously. Digital recordings are instantly encrypted directly on the dictation devices. Using 256-bit file encryption ensures data privacy throughout the transport process of moving from recorder to transcriptionist or speech to text application.

What is 256-bit file encryption? How does it improve data security?

256-bit file encryption uses a public/private key code combination to disguise information. Used primarily in internet based transactions, government projects, and financial institutions, 256-bit file encryption takes a sophisticated, high powered computer to translate the information in a short period of time. As transport of data takes only a matter of seconds or minutes, even the most technologically advanced attackers will struggle to decode the information.

256-bit file encryption thus offers web transport security virtually equal to direct, wired connections. This encryption provides government-approved encoding of the most confidential information being shared between your digital recorder and your office. Even when transporting dictation files over less secure or open networks, file encryption maintains a level of security for your data, giving you peace of mind that your confidential information remains secure.
