ForeScout helps healthcare organizations protect confidential patient data, demonstrate compliance with regulations, and provide secure access to a myriad of new devices and user populations in a cost-effective, efficient manner.
As cyber threats continue to evolve, healthcare organizations have to rethink how to ensure security, privacy and compliance, while optimizing patient care services. New technologies such as smart medical devices, mobile and cloud services, and electronic protected health information (ePHI) offer a number of operational benefits. However, these same technologies introduce security risks and may compromise the confidentiality and integrity of sensitive patient data.
Healthcare organizations also have additional information security complexities compared to other institutions. They have to contend with a broader user community of employees, contractors, visiting doctors, caregivers and visitors – all with different computing needs and restrictions. Moreover, health services utilize specialized, network-connected medical devices that present unique monitoring and security requirements. And while security controls are essential, they cannot impede medical procedures when lives are at stake.
Traditional network security focuses on blocking external attacks with firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS). But today, most serious data loss events occur from the inside. Can zero-day attacks and advanced persistent threats scan your network to glean information? Can rogue wireless access points extend your network without your knowledge?
Similarly, traditional endpoint security systems, such as anti-virus, patch management and encryption, provide much-needed endpoint protection but are limited to managed, user-based endpoints. Additionally, these security systems may not be operational and up-to-date on 100% of the endpoints, often over-reporting their deployment and compliance by 10% to 15%, and leaving gaps in protection.
Numerous healthcare institutions use ForeScout CounterACT to protect their networks and sensitive data, measure compliance with security policies, and improve operational efficiency.
ForeScout CounterACT is a pervasive network security platform that delivers real-time visibility and control of devices on your network. CounterACT provides network access control (NAC), endpoint compliance, mobile device security and threat control, in one automated system, enabling patient care services without compromising security.
ForeScout CounterACT reduces the risk of data breaches and malware attacks that would otherwise put your organization at risk. And it helps monitor and improve the effectiveness of your security policies, so you can demonstrate compliance with industry regulations such as HIPAA, HITECH and OSHA.
