In the healthcare industry, information security is critical. The revolution in medical devices, software, and mobile
technology — collectively, the Internet of Medical Things — is making it possible to deliver more efficient and effective patient care. These technologies, and the data they collect, have generated enticing new opportunities for cyber attackers, although ransomware still reigns as the industry’s top threat.
Beyond this surge in the number of new endpoints, the healthcare industry is grappling with legacy systems, strained cybersecurity budgets, and IT security skill shortages that have created a perfect storm of complexity and vulnerability. What’s needed is a single platform to tackle the challenges of mobility, SaaS applications, and endpoints while securing access to and use of the cloud.
