Today’s hospital networks are larger and more complex than ever before, and protecting them against malicious activity is a never-ending task. Healthcare organizations seeking to safeguard their patient’s safety, protect their identities and avoid clinical care disruptions need to do more than monitor logs and network flow data; they need to leverage advanced tools to detect these activities in a consumable manner. This is especially critical now that the majority of medical devices ranging from IV Infusion Pumps to Telemetry devices are on the network. Extreme Networks Security Analytics SIEM can serve as the anchor solution within a small or large hospital’s security operations center to collect, normalize and correlate available network data using years’ worth of contextual insights. The result is something called security intelligence.
At the heart of this product sits a highly scalable database designed to capture real-time log event and network flow data, revealing the footprints of wouldbe attackers. Extreme Networks Security Analytics is an enterprise solution that consolidates log source event data from thousands of devices distributed across a network, storing every activity in its raw form, and then performing immediate correlation activities to distinguish the real threats from false positives. It also captures real-time Layer 4 network flow data and, more uniquely, Layer 7 application payloads, using deep packet inspection technology.
An intuitive user interface shared across all Extreme Networks Security Analytics components helps IT personnel quickly identify and remediate network attacks by rank, ordering hundreds of alerts and patterns of anomalous activity into a drastically reduced number of offenses warranting further investigation.
