Cybersecurity for Hospitals

Helping hospitals and other health care providers to protect against malware

Hospitals present a challenging environment for security and IT professionals because they are insecure environments that combine public and private networks, staff with widely divergent needs and a growth in collaboration between institutions. Additionally, the useful life of a lot of medical equipment means that keeping connected devices updated may not always be practical. In this environment, a layered security stance is needed.

Cybersecurity professionals in these environments need to deploy a defence-in-depth strategy and benefit from cloud security that uses the DNS to protect users beyond the hospital networks.
