Security Platform for Healthcare Providers

Healthcare data has become increasingly targeted by cybercriminals; at the same time security and network staff at health- care providers are required to:

  • Support new medical tech innovations, such as telehealth, wearable health devices, and network-connected medical equipment, as well as broad IT trends like the virtualization of the data center, cloud migration and mobile devices.
  • Detect and block threats; investigate cyber incidents.
  • Enable safe access to patient data from a myriad of entry points, including hospitals, clinics, insurers, doctors’ home offices, affiliate facilities, mobile devices and more.
  • Ensure compliance with HIPAA, PCI and other regulations impacting patient data, medical equipment, and credit card transactions.
