Symbiotic Security in Healthcare

If healthcare providers can’t figure out how to safely adopt IoMT and operate in the digital age, they won’t survive. One of the benefits of consolidations, mergers and acquisitions is that the acquiring practice is oftentimes now acting as a SaaS provider for the smaller, acquired practice – including providing cybersecurity. Because networks are more complicated than ever before, security is only as strong as its weakest link.

How Can SMB Practices Improve Healthcare Cybersecurity?

The healthcare sector has been under increasing attack from cybercriminals with a variety of tactics and motivations.

Businesses Need A Security Fabric That is Local AND Global

Security today relies on total visibility across the distributed network, as well deep insight into threats gathered and correlated from across the globe. But visibility isn’t enough.

Things you can learn from a million users

Recently, I had the pleasure of leading a FortiGate-5000 series chassis deployment. While I’ve worked on the 5000 series before, this was my first “soup to nuts” deployment of our 4th generation chassis. The 5000 series is not merely a very large appliance. It is a vessel for FortiGate and FortiController blades. The firewall is actually a cluster of FG-5001D worker blades that rely on the 5144C chassis for power and connectivity. With two NP6 ASICS, each FG-5001D has similar throughput characteristics to the FG-1500D appliance. However, apart...
