FortiDeceptor Delivers Breach Protection for Critical Healthcare Services

Download Case Study


For one regional hospital system in the Southwest United States, uninterrupted patient care is its key mission. And for its lean IT staff, this means staying ahead of cyberthreats against their ever-expanding attack surface.

A key solution for the organization’s cybersecurity protection is Fortinet’s proactive threat detection solution, FortiDeceptor. After years of using other Fortinet solutions, the regional hospital system was impressed with the fast deployment and ongoing ease of management with FortiDeceptor to detect both external attacks and internal hack attempts. The response it provides extends throughout the Fortinet Security Fabric, where other Fortinet solutions tightly integrate across its network.

“Our deception decoys are confusingly similar to our actual services so that remote actors try their campaigns there. By exposing FortiDeceptor to threats that might otherwise be hitting our critical systems, we gain a true picture of what our externally accessible servers go through daily.”
