eFax encrypts the inbound fax and delivers the encrypted fax to our secure web server; with this option your faxes receive 256b encryption and the fax is encrypted at rest as well as during transport. When the fax reaches our secure webserver we send an email notification to your user. The user must then log into our secure webserver to view the fax. The user can then move the fax to a folder, download the fax, view it or delete it. Using eFax with email does not provide this security unless the email domain is secure.
vFax is through Vocalocity and is NOT secure. If you have been given this option and need to send PHI, please contact email@example.com.
