Healthcare IT teams have to worry about the advanced and persistent threats that are targeting electronic patient history information (ePHI) while also keeping compliance with HIPAA and other regulatory groups that are changing and becoming more complex each year. Computing and accessing information has moved from on-prem to cloud and mobile devices leaving healthcare organizations at a higher risk for a data breach and compromised credentials. A surprising and frightful fact is that 90% of healthcare organizations have had at least 1 data breach in the past 2 years, with 40% of those organizations reporting that they have had more than 5 incidents. The landscape of cyber crime is changing, leaving the healthcare IT professionals playing catch up. Healthcare IT must meet all of these challenges and deliver secure remote access in a breach-plagued landscape.
