Overview

Cyber threats menace every industry, but in healthcare they are particularly dangerous. Patient information and patient care must be safeguarded. For those reasons, New Jersey-based Englewood Hospital and Medical Center (EHMC) turned to Symantec Managed Security Services for IT security monitoring and management. Discover how EHMC gained efficient and effective security coverage, and reduced costs.

The Challenge

Deploying a cost-effective, compliant-ready security solution.

Managing IT operations and assuring data security at EHMC is a formidable and complicated task. If mismanaged, results can negatively impact staff, the business, and, ultimately, patient care. Ron Fuschillo, EHMC's vice president and CIO at the time, and Neville Lee, director of IT infrastructure, were faced with finding a solution that would protect the organization against cyber threats and ensure regulatory compliance.

The Solution

Symantec Managed Security Services

After looking at other vendors, the IT team concluded that Symantec best understood the healthcare industry and matched EHMC's high standard of excellence. Team leaders chose Symantec's Security Operations Center bolstered by Symantec Managed Security Services, which together provide 24/7 threat detection and monitoring by Symantec experts on the global threat landscape. With the help of Prevalent Networks, a Symantec Platinum Partner and compliance and risk management specialist, EHMC implemented Managed Security Services in just one week.
