IDC Technology Spotlight: Protect Patient Data From the Inside Out

Healthcare organizations face thousands of potential cyberthreats on a daily basis. Hundreds of them are potentially dangerous, and at least 10 are so severe that the chief information security officer (CISO) should advise law enforcement of the attack. Advanced attacks are more often than not conducted by foreign cybercriminals, as well as by nation states. That said, healthcare organizations are also at risk of domestic attacks, including on-premise threats. Multiplying points of entry using cloud and mobile technologies make it harder for healthcare organizations to protect the network perimeter.

This Technology Spotlight examines the increased threat from cyberattacks on healthcare organizations. It also looks at the role Fortinet's Internal Segmentation Firewall (ISFW) can play in the strategically important healthcare security market to protect patient data from the inside out.
