Support a mobile workforce. Secure patient data beyond the network.
More of your healthcare workers are taking care of patients outside of the hospital. Home care, infusion clinics and traveling nurses are the new norm. You must support this increasingly mobile workforce while ensuring the protection of protected health information (PHI). On top of all that, you must be able to produce reports that prove your data is secure and compliant with the many evolving regulations. Your IT strategy must support a model where workers – and sensitive healthcare data – are constantly on the move.

Our adaptive endpoint security solution provides you with a persistent connection to all of your endpoints and the data they contain. This means you’re always in control, even if a device is off the network or in the hands of an unauthorized user.
