Halifax Health

"Fortinet really understood the Halifax Health mission. In addition to performance and protection, we needed to have a product that met our financial needs, too, and Fortinet did that."

– Tom Stafford, Vice President and CIO,
Halifax Health


Halifax Health, based in Daytona Beach, is the largest healthcare provider in east central Florida, with 678 licensed beds and more than 500 doctors on its staff spread across two hospitals. “We are a hospital system that cares for everyone in our community who comes through our doors,” says Tom Stafford, Vice President and CIO.

A top priority for Halifax Health is safeguarding patient information. The hospital has been using Fortinet’s FortiGate firewalls for more than a year, and is now rolling out Fortinet’s new FortiGuard Artificial Intelligence threat analysis and detection solution. Fortinet recently talked with Stafford about the challenges of protecting health data and Halifax’s use of Fortinet products.
