Fax Encryption

Encrypting Faxes with RightFax

Information security remains one of the most significant concerns for organizations worldwide. Internal breaches and external threats plague all businesses, but those that exchange protected, confidential and private information are particularly at risk. The extra layer of protection provided by RightFax add-on modules adds even more security to a RightFax fax server implementation.

RightFax Encryption Module

The RightFax Encryption module encrypts all data at rest with TripleDES 192-bit security and supports PCI-DSS and HIPAA compliance, making it important for those exchanging protected or sensitive information.

Prevent Unauthorized Access
Encrypting fax images at rest can protect your organization from unauthorized access to data from anyone who has permissions and the ability to bypass the full audit capabilities of RightFax. While RightFax provides a full audit trail, RightFax can only audit access of faxes if they are viewed through the system.

  • Administrators can accidentally or unintentionally access information by browsing the stored PHI file directly, leaving your organization at risk for fines
  • Computer hardware sent for repair or discarded can contain PHI which can be accessed by repair technicians or the new hardware user
  • On-boarding or training processes may unintentionally gives system users access to file system storage

With the Encryption Module, access to encrypted images is only allowed from the RightFax client through the RightFax API, and a full audit trail is collected.

Encrypt Faxes at Rest
Add a layer of protection for fax images by encrypting all fax images at rest while they are stored in the RightFax Image Directory or SQL Image Storage Module. This module adds a layer of security by preventing any unauthorized viewing of fax images in the RightFax Image Directory structure.

Improved Compliance
With AES 256-bit security, your fax images are encrypted at rest to satisfy information security or regulatory requirements like PCI DSS or HIPAA.

End-to-End Protection
RightFax Encryption Module and Secure SIP Channels together will protect your faxes both at rest and in transit providing you with the highest security all the way down.

Strengthen Compliance and Reduce Risk
RightFax allows organizations to report from a single audit trail for faxes, files and documents. Proof of compliance is stored in RightFax and can be integrated into ERP hosts, email and document archives, and almost any system.

  • Safekeep files on your own RightFax server, not the Internet as with Web-based file delivery services
  • Secure all files behind the firewall, outside of the DMZ, not on the Web server, accessible only via secure API calls
  • Convert documents to encrypted PDF files automatically, and deliver via certified delivery or as email attachments

Secure FoIP Channels

When utilizing Fax over IP (FoIP), the new RightFax Secure FoIP channels secures and encrypts fax traffic within the firewall. This new channel option introduces support for TLS over SIP, where TLS provides endpoint authentication by using mutual or two-way authentication on a hop-by-hop basis.

RightFax organizations can upgrade their existing RightFax FoIP channels to RightFax Secure FoIP channels. Depending on their telephony infrastructure and security requirements, new RightFax customers have many channel options, including traditional hardware-based fax boards, RightFax FoIP channels and RightFax Secure FoIP channels.

Improved Security
Secure SIP channels will encrypt your faxes in motion between your RightFax server and your gateway (Cisco, Avaya, Sonus, Dialogic).

Secure SIP Channels
RightFax Secure SIP Channels is an enhanced FOIP channel that will support TLS 1.2 encryption of your faxes in motion between your RightFax server and your gateway (Cisco, Avaya, Sonus, Dialogic).

Plug & Play Functionality
This “plug-and-play” module can be integrated within minutes by connecting via Fax over IP (FoIP) with a SIP Trunk.

TLS Support
New channel option introduces support for TLS over SIP. TLS provides endpoint authentication by using mutual or two-way authentication on a hop-by-hop basis.
