Strengthening Healthcare Network Security with Verification and Automation
Keeping track of the rising number of connections, network tools, and data traffic can prove challenging for healthcare network security. Consequently, companies need to take a proactive stand to detect and deal with vulnerabilities before cyberattacks and data theft.
Independent verification is required to discover vulnerabilities in the large number of legacy systems, controllers, and cloud instances. The verification process undertakes analysis and continuous verification of the constantly changing design of the network to increase business agility and help deploy other automated control solutions to high-level goals of the network.
Healthcare organizations are operating on a large scale, harbor a significant amount of sensitive data and deploy a number of networked devices (such as routers, servers, switches, IoT devices, firewalls, and laptops). Such organizations are required to comply with a number of regulatory standards such as the (PCI DSS) and HIPAA. IT professionals in the industry are responsible for ensuring compliance with the applicable standards maintaining the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of data.
A network verification system requires the installation of several virtual machines to collect network data which is used to ensure the compliance, security, and resilience of the network. With increasing complexity of the healthcare networks, automation is a consideration for IT to manage growing networks, holistically. Solutions automating security and verification are being developed.
