Criminal attacks in health care being the leading cause of data breach now days, healthcare organizations are under pressure to address the rapidly changing cyber threat environment. With lack of resources and processes to protect patient data, it’s apparent that the medical organizations need multiple layers of security to manage and migrate the rising threats.
