Revolutionizing Healthcare Cybersecurity with Banyan Security SSEIn the ever-evolving world of healthcare, where patient data is both a treasure and a target, cybersecurity remains a constant and pressing concern.
Healthcare organizations are entrusted with not only safeguarding sensitive patient information but also facilitating the seamless flow of data among a diverse array of users, including in-house healthcare professionals, contractors, and remote staff. As the digital landscape advances, the need for modernizing existing network infrastructures becomes increasingly evident. In this context, the convergence of two transformative technologies, Security Service Edge (SSE) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), offers a promising path forward.
Healthcare Cybersecurity Challenges
Patient Data Privacy
Protecting patient health records and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from unauthorized access is essential for compliance and patient satisfaction.
Healthcare organizations are vulnerable to data breaches that can lead to financial losses and reputational damage.
The healthcare sector is frequently targeted by ransomware attacks that can disrupt critical services.
Vendor and Third-Party Risks
Managing secure access for contractors and third-party service providers is a complex undertaking.
Remote Access Challenges
Telemedicine and remote work require robust security measures for remote access to healthcare systems and patient data.
Regulatory and compliance requirements, such as mandates from the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), have strict security measures protecting patient information.
Client and Clientless Deployment Options
Multiple deployment options to fit your needs.
Banyan Security is one of the only security vendors that provides a complete range of connection options for all stakeholders, employees, and contractors that engage with the healthcare ecosystem. This includes corporate and personal-owned devices that are prevalent in healthcare, as well as managed and unmanaged systems.
- Client for mobile and desktop.
- Clientless options:
- Chromium Browser Extension – Banyan’s Chrome Extension is a lightweight browser extension that can be installed, without elevated or administrator privileges, in Chromium-based browsers (i.e., Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge). This allows end-users to access Hosted Websites and SaaS Applications secured with Banyan.
- Unregistered Device Support – Our unregistered device functionality allows users with unmanaged and unregistered devices to have access in seconds. The authentication does not require certificates, and Device Trust functionality is not supported.
- Device Manager Integration – This option is ideal for users who don’t want to bother with manual enrollment. This allows a certificate to be pushed out to the device. Since passwordless access feeds a frictionless user experience, this certificate can imbed device and identity information to enable Passwordless authentication and Device Trust.
