By Troy Ament | March 01, 2022

Frost & Sullivan recently assessed the North American healthcare cybersecurity industry and recognized Fortinet with the 2021 North America Product Leadership Award. Each year, Frost & Sullivan’s Product Leadership Award recognizes the company that offers a product or solution with attributes that deliver the industry's best quality, reliability, and performance.

Securing Patient Care

As healthcare organizations accelerate their digital innovation and patient care initiatives, their security infrastructure must be able to keep up with the new network edges being put in place along with the increasingly complex and fast-evolving threat landscape.

According to Ojaswi Rana, Best Practices Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, “One major industry challenge in healthcare is the lack of interoperability between health systems, platforms, and devices, preventing security solutions from monitoring threats at an enterprise level. Skilled resources are another issue that hampers many healthcare organizations from effectively managing cybersecurity. However, Fortinet’s Security Fabric platform addresses these challenges with its cybersecurity mesh architecture approach offering centralized management, automation, and integrated solutions that work in concert, establishing itself as a trailblazer in the healthcare cybersecurity industry.”

“Fortinet’s innovative product solutions and leadership in the convergence of networking and security are revolutionizing the healthcare cybersecurity market, positioning it as a market leader,” said Koustav Chatterjee, an industry principal for Frost & Sullivan. “The company’s broad, integrated, and automated capabilities earn its customers’ trust as a long-term healthcare cybersecurity vendor.”

Fortinet’s broad portfolio of cybersecurity solutions is built with integration and automation in mind, enabling more efficient, self-healing operations and a rapid response to known and unknown threats. With digital and remote care needs, increasingly sophisticated threats, and ongoing digital acceleration initiatives, this is more important than ever.

The Fortinet Security Fabric is a platform built around a common operating system and management framework to enable broad visibility, seamless integration, and interoperability between critical security elements, and granular control and automation.
