Mobility, Data, and Security in Healthcare

Take Endpoint Security to a New Level

Bill Virtue

Mobile productivity continues to be a rising demand in healthcare as doctors, nurses, medical students, and other healthcare professionals need access to patient data. And health organizations must also address the fact that many healthcare professionals want to use their own devices to access this data. To balance mobile device productivity with patient privacy, endpoint security and compliance are critical for every healthcare organization.

But challenges abound, and the diverse mix of mobility solutions and access scenarios make managing and securing patient data more complex than ever before. It’s vital that healthcare organizations find a way to secure endpoint devices and the data on them, while embracing computing trends like BYOD, sharing data in public cloud services, and workforce mobility.
