A report by Check Point shows how hospitals can secure digital patient data. As weaknesses constantly evolve, protections need to automatically adapt to new threats.

Health agencies need an integrated solution to ensure this. They must have protection against advanced threats and currently unknown digital weaknesses.
Governments have put out a number of regulations to ensure health organisations remain secure. Technology can help to automatically ensure that hospitals’ policies are in line with these rules and best practices.
