Protect Patient Data While Ensuring Compliance and Enabling Collaboration​

Security Operations Solutions for the Healthcare Industry

Hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other healthcare providers store tremendous amounts of protected health information (PHI) and need 24×7 uninterrupted access to their systems to properly care for patients, but don’t always have the resources for cutting-edge defences.

Threat actors know all of this, which is why healthcare is such a tempting target for phishing, ransomware, spear phishing and social engineering attacks, to name but a few.

Cybersecurity Challenges in Healthcare

Connected medical devices, a sprawling distribution of locations, legacy systems, and scarcity of cohesive inventory management are major security and IT challenges for healthcare organisations.

The quest to improve patient care and provide adequate physical security to facilities, equipment and records has resulted in an increasingly complicated IT landscape, making the challenge of protecting patient data even more difficult. And the growing number of data protection regulations such as GDPR requirements have made obtaining and maintaining compliance a constant challenge.
