San Francisco, September 25 – Banyan Security, a leading name in cybersecurity innovation, is proud to announce the launch of its groundbreaking Zero Trust Clientless solution, specifically designed to revolutionize secure access within the healthcare industry. This new solution is poised to address the critical challenges faced by healthcare organizations in providing secure access to a wide array of centralized applications used for patient care and hospital operations. Banyan’s solution offers a range of clientless capabilities that support unregistered and unmanaged devices, along with browser extensions that can be installed without administrative privileges.
In an era where healthcare breaches incur the highest average cost per breach, as highlighted by a 2021 study from IBM ($9.23 million on average), safeguarding sensitive patient data and complying with stringent governmental regulations like HIPAA is of paramount importance.
