NEC Solutions unveils security software

Wednesday, 13 August 2003, 1:54 AM EST

NEC Solutions America, which offers products including business consulting and mobile computing systems, said the Tricryption product can help health care organizations meet privacy rules for patient data set by the Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act (HIPPA) of 1996.
