Improve healthcare outcomes while reducing costs Never before has there been so much change in the healthcare IT landscape. Numerous disruptive technologies, including electronic healthcare records, patient portals, mHealth, telehealth, Internet of Medical Things devices, and HIPAA-compliant cloud services (e.g. Office 365, Google Apps) are being adopted or planned. Visiting doctors and staff are connecting unmanaged mobile and IoT devices to your network and accessing your patient's data — PHI or PII. And patients are connecting often-infected devices to your guest Wi-Fi, which can be a liability. And it's happening everywhere — tens to hundreds of hospitals, clinics, and other facilities. The potential is huge, right? Criminals think so, too! Problem: too much complexity, cost, & compliance Staffing (26%) and maintenance (23%) of existing on-premises security technology consume half of healthcare's security budgets. 1 Likely, the rest is burned complying with HIPAA/HITECH requirements. Typical security stacks consist of firewalls to defend network connections, AV to defend managed endpoints, proxies to enforce web policy, and SIEM to comply with regulations. Some teams deploy something more advanced like a sandbox, but often discover they don't have enough resources to cover every network connection or respond to every alert. You know these layers are not enough today, but by the time you deploy another box or agent to cover one gap, 10 more gaps appear. Need: cover healthcare security gaps You need protection for all connected devices at your healthcare facilities, including the Internet of Medical Things - infusion pumps, heart monitors, and more - plus roaming laptops and iOS devices. © 2018 Cisco and/or its affiliates.
