Protect the network. Protect your patients.

July 11, 2017 - 2 Comments

Just think of the volume of healthcare data being transferred and stored every day—data from connected medical devices, electronic health records (EHR), clinical workstations, and smart hospital applications for patients, clinicians, researchers, and administrators.

Is it safe? What role can the network play in keeping what’s important secure?

With Cisco DNA, the network acts as sensor and enforcer, providing real-time threat defense through visibility of encrypted and unencrypted data. Cisco DNA enables you to:

  • Reduce risk by turning your network into a security system with interoperable solutions that provide multilayered protection
  • Lower complexity by choosing among integrated, dedicated, and cloud-managed options for end-to-end security
  • Gain deeper insights using real-time data to secure access, provide intelligence, and sense suspicious activity—even in encrypted traffic
  • Protect against threats by enforcing policy and taking action to protect your organization across the network from known and unknown threats.

With security and assurance embedded networkwide—across routing, switching, wireless, and the cloud—Cisco DNA speeds threat detection and containment. Check out the infographic below to learn more about what Cisco DNA can mean for security at your healthcare organization.

Stay tuned for the final installment in our Cisco DNA for Healthcare blog series, which will focus on what you can do to make your hospital digital ready.

  1. Thank you for sharing Cisco DNA functionalities, and providing a case study of a Client’s challenge with the highlights of the solution provided by Cisco DNA, and of course the results (outcomes) when Cisco DNA was deployed. I now have what to take to the Healthcare Industry (also called the Medical Industry or Health Economy). This is awesome! Thank you.

  2. Yeah! this is right. Protect the networks is helping to Protect your patients as well
