Never overlook the importance of healthcare data security

Never overlook the importance of healthcare data security

Many healthcare organizations in the world today are dealing with a common problem: a rapid explosion of data. As the number of patients they’re treating increases, and the amount of information they’re curating on each patient balloons as well, it becomes clear that they need to prioritize data center transformation. But in so doing, they can’t just go for storage capacity and efficiency at all costs – they also have to value data security.

This can be difficult, as many organizations are shifting their data storage environments extremely quickly. From hospitals to clinics to research labs, the pain points are the same – their budgets are shrinking, their workloads are growing, and they need to move rapidly toward virtualized and cloud-based environments. These fast transitions inevitably bring about vulnerabilities, including the potential for data breaches and ransomware attacks.

Check Point works to create solutions for these sorts of problems. Whether your organization stores data in a data center, a virtualized environment, or a cloud platform – or perhaps a little bit in all of the above – a new IT infrastructure from Zones and Check Point can help make life easier. Check Point’s integrated healthcare security solution bolsters security by delivering unified threat prevention across networks, cloud, mobile endpoints, and even the Internet of Things, all while minimizing costs and avoiding disruption to your business.

If your organization is like most, there’s a fairly high level of urgency to act now. More than 15 million medical records were compromised due to data breaches in 2018 alone; data on 2019 is still being compiled, but that figure is expected to grow even larger. These breaches have catastrophic impacts for any business, including financial costs, lost productivity, and damage to your organization’s reputation. Having a proactive solution to prevent incidents is absolutely crucial.
