We want to meet the highest security standard possible. We wanted a solution that is tech-forward, the latest and greatest, but also easy to use. Other solutions require a bigger time investment on the part of email senders and receivers. We wanted to forgo all of that and make it easy on the front end. Paubox checked all of those boxes for us.Ken Dabkowski, Senior Project Manager, Sedera
Sedera sees itself and medical cost sharing as an important part of the free-market healthcare ecosystem, aimed at creating options for consumers, promoting price transparency across the system, and removing red tape.
“Our approach solves the problems of accessibility, lack of transparency, and lack of affordability in healthcare. Sedera wants to make new solutions the new normal,” said Ken Dabkowski, senior project manager at Sedera.
Sedera is committed to ensuring that its nationwide network complies with all applicable state privacy laws. The company transmits a high volume of data on a daily basis, so HIPAA compliant email is a must. At the same time, Sedera wanted to develop a sense of community among its members through personalization and connection.
Delivering a customized community experience while keeping data secure is a tall order. “That’s what led us to Paubox,” Dabkowski added.
A Sedera employee had heard great things about Paubox, so the company took a closer look. They were impressed by the combination of security and seamlessness of Paubox Email Suite Plus, which makes it easy for Sedera to guarantee that each email is encrypted, every time. Paubox Email Suite Plus integrated easily with Google Workspace, which was an advantage, and the implementation process was easy and hassle-free.
Fortunately, Sedera has not been breached. However, email spoofing was a problem. Paubox Email Suite Pus offers inbound email security to protect users from incoming threats like viruses and phishing emails.
Paubox Email Suite Plus also includes Paubox’s patented ExecProtect solution to prevent display name spoofing emails from reaching the inbox. “Now we don’t get those spoofed emails anymore, and we’re thrilled about that,” Dabkowski explained.
In the past 12 months, Paubox Email Suite Plus has secured more than 577,000 emails on behalf of 118 Sedera employees. Paubox’s inbound security also seamlessly blocked 1,365 spam, 1 virus, and more than 100 phishing emails from landing in Sedera employees’ inboxes. Sedera’s team appreciates the time savings they realize by using Paubox’s zero-step email encryption, and the reduced risk with automaticHIPAA compliant email offers priceless value.
