Supporting Compassionate Caregivers With a More Secure and Reliable Network

“We have a nursing home, rehab hospitals, and home health agencies. They need service 24 hours a day. And we have been getting hit with a lot of hurricanes and other disruptions, where the lines get wet, and the main internet service goes down. We really needed SD-WAN, because we are nonprofit, so we do not have a lot of funding, and we have to pick and choose the equipment and services we get.”

– Sheikh Arshed, Director of Information Security and IT Operations, Catholic Health Services

 

Catholic Health Services (CHS) provides healthcare services to thousands of people through its 38 locations across Broward and Miami-Dade counties in Florida. Its role and location place CHS at risk, not only of internet outages due to hurricanes and other hazards, but also of cyberattacks due to the personal health information it collects. For this budget-strapped non-profit, Fortinet’s centrally managed Security Fabric with Secure SD-WAN affords both resilient connectivity and efficient IT operations.

 

More Protection Than is Humanly Possible

“The SD-WAN quickly responds and lets us know one circuit went down and the other took over. Now we are not down for 30 minutes to four hours, or whatever the response time is for somebody to get there. That is the best part about it.”

– Sheikh Arshed, Director of Information Security and IT Operations, Catholic Health Services
