Extend state-of-the-art endpoint protection for state-of-the-art medical care, anywhere
Every year, UHZ treats nearly 650,000 patients across its medical facilities, clinics, and institutes. It employs more than 8,400 medical and administrative staff members and has deployed more than 13,000 endpoints, including desktop computers and mobile devices. As the head of System Engineering at UHZ, it’s Tom Schütt’s responsibility to protect his staff and endpoints from attacks.
“Securing them all is very important to us,” Schütt explains. “It is vital for us that our endpoint security solution features state-of-the-art technology to help us minimize risk.”
In 2018, realizing they needed more effective endpoint security than their existing on-premises solution could provide, Schütt’s team ran a proof of concept (POC) of Traps advanced endpoint protection, which he had learned about from Omicron AG, a Swiss Palo Alto Networks partner. “When we carried out a software evaluation, Traps was the clear winner,” Schütt remembers. “The most important factor in a solution such as this is its ability to detect malware, and it did that really effectively.” When it came to deployment, Omicron helped optimize the solution for UHZ’s specific needs.
