MANCHESTER, NH, April 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Zoom Telephonics, Inc., doing business as Minim (OTCQB: MINM) (“Minim”), the creator of innovative internet access products, today announces that its solution is being rolled out at  ANY LAB TEST NOW  sites to ensure patient health data is protected over the locations’ WiFi networks.

“In addition to keeping costs down, we take HIPAA seriously, and setting up a secure network and physical space is high on my priority list,” said Ola Abimbola, Principal at High Country Lab Services, an ANY LAB TEST NOW franchisee. “Working with Minim has been seamless. All product owners and representatives are always available to answer questions, especially during setup and onboarding. Equally important, I am saving over 50% compared to the previous company I used.”

With a forecasted 49% increase in post-pandemic retail health clinic demand ( Report: Healthcare Ecosystem 2021: Retail’s Role in Future Care ), Minim helps alleviate wireless network security and performance risks so clinics can focus on patient care. At $49 per month, Minim’s advanced routers and cloud platform deliver an AI-driven IoT firewall, guest network management, auto-managed firmware, 7-point vulnerability scans, network alerts, ad blocking, and more.

“My family has visited lab test sites a few times during the pandemic,” said Minim CEO Gray Chynoweth. “As a patient, I wondered about how the site protected my data from a network security breach. Medical and administrative devices are becoming increasingly WiFi-connected, leading to exponential privacy risks. That’s why we are proud to serve ANY LAB TEST NOW with Minim.”

The Minim solution is comprised of three products:

  • Minim-powered Routers: With leading router brands, Minim provides routers and mesh systems with zero touch provisioning to create the Minim network. 
  • Minim Edge Extend: A web application that grants IT personnel visibility into their Minim network with insights, including: network usage, network quality scores, settings management, and vulnerability analysis.
  • Minim Remote Assistant: A mobile app for staff to diagnose Wi-Fi issues, such as low signal strength or speeds, as well as set policies for security filters, ad blocking, safe search, listening device pausing, and more.

“After consulting with our client and learning about their specific use case, we determined Minim would be the best fit,” said Matt Guran, President of  Diversified Telecom Management Services, the Minim and Telarus partner who introduced the solution to ANY LAB TEST NOW. “Our security team experts reviewed the capabilities of the current Fortinet and Cisco Meraki services that High Country Lab Services were using and recommended trying Minim – which is delivering a remarkably more affordable, high quality, AI-driven next generation firewall and WiFi experience to our client.”
