The healthcare industry today is one of the top targets of cyberattackers. This has been driven in large part by the digitization of healthcare delivery and migration of critical data to poorly secured cloud deployments.

Additionally, IoT devices deployed on unpartitioned networks with limited access controls and the use of legacy systems has created a vulnerable attack surface.

Cybercriminals intent on stealing personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI) can easily exploit this broad attack surface and simultaneously disrupt healthcare delivery processes.

Gaps in policies and handling procedure soften result in unintentional errors by staff members, creating a soft spot for cybercriminals who are looking for weaknesses to exploit.

With Vectra, healthcare organizations can:

  • Identify the early stages of attacks related to ransomware, Zeus, Citadel and other malware variants.
  • Detect threats that exploit vulnerabilities in the cloud and workloads during healthcare digital transformation.
  • Identify compromised medical IoT devices that are used as proxies to carry out targeted attacks.
  • Expose attacker behaviors that attempt to steal PHI, PII and payment card information.
  • Supports healthcare compliance requirements, including PCI DSS, HIPAA and HITECH.
