“Security has to be the core of everything we do,” says Todd Forgie, vice president of IT and managed services at MEDHOST. As a leader in healthcare technology for over 30 years, MEDHOST has a history of investing in software to meet current requirements and anticipating needs in advance of market demand.
MEDHOST provides software and services to about 1,000 healthcare facilities nationwide, deploying across private, public, and hybrid cloud architectures. These systems are supported by an IT staff of 60 people, who manage client environments and internal core services, including all the security tools for about 1,500 workloads and 700 mobile devices.
Watch the video below to learn how MEDHOST applies the security-first approach with Trend Micro to maintain regulatory compliance, preserve performance, and bolster operational management.
Security is at the core of all MEDHOST activities, from product development and customer support to management of day-to-day operations and hosting a hospital information system. Security solutions from Trend Micro help MEDHOST protect the privacy of patients as well as preventing disruptions to vital surgical equipment. In fact, in the first three months alone, MEDHOST detected 5,000-6,000 threats using security technologies from Trend Micro.
In addition to helping with security and compliance, MEDHOST saved time by enforcing consistent policies across all workloads in private, public and hybrid cloud environments, and having a single view for managing all threat activity. Plus, the ability to automatically scan workloads as they come online and then virtually patch them from critical vulnerabilities like Shellshock and Heartbleed is helping MEDHOST speed protection and ensure consistent security for their customers.
