Industries > Healthcare


Today, more medical devices than ever are connected to the cloud. And patient data requires protection wherever it’s accessed, whether at the bedside in a hospital or in a local medical practice office.

You need to secure your healthcare organization’s extensive IT infrastructure to ensure operational and data integrity at every stage of the patient and provider journey.

By outsourcing cybersecurity to a managed extended detection and response (MXDR) service provider, your healthcare organization can instead focus on delivering high-quality patient care and innovation.

The Problem

Challenges for Healthcare Organizations

Secure Mobile Devices and Telehealth

Secure Mobile Devices and Telehealth

Modern healthcare IT environments have had increased demand for mobile device connectivity and telehealth services. This brings new security challenges as patient data, billing information, bookings, and video conferencing co-exist in the same cloud-first environment.

Secure Legacy Equipment

Secure Legacy Equipment

Risks include old, outdated control software and legacy X-ray devices, MRI machines and microscopes that may not support web proxies that increase their vulnerability. Adding special handling of assets like these adds more complexity to environments that are already challenging to secure.

Comply with Regulatory Requirements

Comply with Regulatory Requirements

Today’s healthcare enterprise is responsible for protecting patient data under HIPAA, GDPR, and PHI. Given how much sensitive data organizations typically handle, data security is a large and demanding task.

Protect the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

Protect the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

It’s complicated to secure connected medical devices used in hospitals, clinics and branch offices. IT leaders want high availability across the environment and simple management that includes fast standardized setups, extensive automation and deep visibility.
