Strengthen Patient Data Protection and Compliance

Data security has become especially critical to the healthcare industry as patient privacy hinges on HIPAA compliance and secure adoption of electronic health records (EHR). Bad actors can exploit public data networks to steal electronic health records or disrupt critical IT systems and services. By implementing patient data protection and compliance solutions, healthcare organizations can protect data in transit, defend infrastructure against denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, and ensure compliance with HIPAA and other data privacy regulations across the globe.
