Gütersloh – Arvato Systems has now secured approval to provide VPN access service for use in the telematics (TI) infrastructure in the German healthcare industry. The IT specialist from the Bertelsmann Group offers highly scalable and robust access service as well as a custom-tailored support package. Service, reliability, and (data) security were the decisive criteria for developing the VPN access service.

“Arvato Systems and our partners have been involved in every step of developing the central telematics infrastructure since 2012. We have always been able to provide our services securely and on schedule,” says Jan Wemmel, Head of eHealth, noting the wealth of market expertise that Arvato Systems boasts in the field of e-health. According to Wemmel, Arvato Systems is setting new standards with cutting-edge technical architecture and the VPN access service. The VPN access service range stands out with a particularly comprehensive service package that takes the needs of all parties involved into account, from simple installation of a leading IT service management platform to a cutting-edge e-learning module. “We want to provide an easy-to-use, secure tool for TI users,” says Wemmel.

Moreover, the associated telematics collector will be launched within the next few weeks – and secunet AG, an Arvato Systems partner, is responsible for its production. The VPN access service and the connector acts as components that are coordinated with one another to make obligatory TI implementation as simple as possible for users.

The complete Arvato Systems TI solution is primarily aimed at major clients, meaning office software users, on-site service providers, and hospitals. Arvato Systems is particularly well equipped to face this complex challenge due to its status as an established, internationally renowned provider.
