Case Study: LuxSci SecureForm and Ink Signatures Eliminate Downloading, Printing, Signing, and Faxing of Contracts

Friday, January 31st, 2014

For legal reasons, LuxSci’s HIPAA customers must physically sign a “Business Associate Agreement” and return it to us. While this is a simple and commonplace request, it creates a lot of busy work for the customer and LuxSci!

The customer might have to

  1. Download the file
  2. Print out the 19 pages
  3. Sign the agreement
  4. Fax back all pages, or scan them and return them electronically

Then, LuxSci might have to

  1. Locate the document
  2. Sort out faxes that are in the wrong order, upside down, blank, or missing pages
  3. Figure out who sent the document
  4. Verify that pages are not missing or changed
  5. Counter-sign the document and attach them to the customer account
  6. Contact customers who have not sent in their documents correctly or at all, which is crucial to the HIPAA certification process

Multiplied by many customers, this creates a lot of unproductive busy work for everyone, which costs money this time.

To simplify this process, LuxSci uses its own Secure Form and Ink Signatures technologies to submit signed contracts in a snap for customers and eliminate most of the busy work LuxSci itself has to do to manage the process.

In this post, we describe how both technologies work.

Everything You Wanted to Know about SSL Certificates

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

SSL certificates are pervasively used on the Internet for securing all the data sent between servers, devices, clouds, phones, computers, etc.  SSL certificates are intrinsic in the encryption of communications using  “SSL and TLS” (how do these work?  What is the difference?) — you can’t have secure communications without them!

In this article, we answer many common and not-so-common questions about SSL certificates.

Ultimate Control: Manage Access to Your Services with Custom Firewalls

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

Can I block this one IP that is scanning our accounts?  Can I restrict my account so that people can only access it from our office network, or require that they authenticate to WebMail first (using two-factor authentication)?

LuxSci is constantly asked for fine-grained access controls by customers who are in shared environments (sharing the same servers with many other accounts).  However, blocking access from IP addresses globally at the request of one customer may potentially affect other customers using the same system.

That is, until now. LuxSci customers can now configure their own custom firewalls to allow and deny access as they see fit without affecting other customers sharing the same server(s).

Can You Make Your Email More Secure?

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

LuxSci offers many options for email security. Whether it is PGP, S/MIME, LuxSci’s SecureLine end-to-end email encryption, or forced secure logins over SSL, LuxSci can guide you in making the best choices for secure and safe email.

End-to-end email encryption is one way to ensure that your email can only be read by the intended recipients. SSL and TLS connections are secure, but only to a point. While you can ensure that your users connect securely to LuxSci’s servers, who is to say that your recipient’s connection is secure? With LuxSci SecureLine, even if the recipient’s connection isn’t secure, you can be assured that your message is sent securely and can only be read by whom you intended.
