Cybersecurity for the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry is massive, encompassing hospitals, health insurance providers, pharmaceutical companies, med-tech manufacturers, and much more. While the missions of these companies may vary, the cybersecurity threats they face are all the same: phishing attacks, data breaches, ransomware attacks, and more. Businesses must defend against these cybersecurity threats while leaving business operations unaffected.

Data Security

Enterprises in the healthcare industry must protect patient data, health records, and other sensitive information to ensure compliance with all relevant regulations. GaraSign simplifies the process of securing data, whether at rest or in transit, with strong encryption and cryptographic protocols. With GaraSign, authorized end-users can seamlessly decrypt and view the data as needed.

Strong Authentication

Experts widely agree that username and password-based authentication is comparatively easy for cybersecurity attackers to compromise. It’s best practice to enforce key-based authentication, via protocols like mutual transport layer security (TLS) and secure shell (SSH), whenever possible. GaraSign simplifies the implementation of key-based authentication and gives customers the ability to add granular controls, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) and device authentication, without needing to manually reconfigure servers or modify existing applications.

Privileged Access Management (PAM)

In 2018, Forrester found that “80% of data breaches have a connection to compromised privileged credentials, such as passwords, tokens, keys, and certificates.” GaraSign helps healthcare companies protect privileged credentials, such as secure shell (SSH) keys, transport layer security (TLS) keys, and remote desktop protocol (RDP) keys, without obstructing access to those credentials or inhibiting the tempo of operations.

Ransomware Protection

It is essential that all healthcare industry enterprises implement strong ransomware protection measures. With GaraSign, customers can quickly and easily create secure backups that are attached with a digital signature, cryptographically timestamped, and secured with strong encryption, to ensure a seamless restore process, in case an attack ever takes place.
