Endpoint Management is Key to Healthcare Cybersecurity

Over 3 million healthcare records are breached and exposed each month and over one third of healthcare organizations are hit by ransomware each year. 

With malware accounting for 40% of cyberattacks, healthcare organizations can thwart a significant cybercrime inroad by maintaining a regular patching schedule for all endpoint devices. Unfortunately, many healthcare organizations struggle with constrained IT budgets, limited staff resources and disparate tools that might not provide a complete solution for protecting the main entry point for these attacks – your endpoints. 

Quest understands the challenges you face and that’s why we’ve structured a comprehensive endpoint security strategy to automate your endpoint protection efforts, safeguard your healthcare records and help you achieve HIPAA compliance.

Proactively Address Healthcare Cybersecurity

An endpoint strategy designed for healthcare cybersecurity

Automate inventory management and deploy antivirus software

Step 1 - Automate inventory management and deploy antivirus software to all endpoints

The KACE Systems Management Appliance addresses one of the biggest challenges in endpoint management – establishing a complete inventory of devices connected to your network. KACE Systems Management Appliance automates endpoint discovery, creates an inventory and ensures they all have the latest anti-virus software.
Automate patch management and vulnerability scanning

Step 2 - Automate patch management and vulnerability scanning

The KACE Systems Management Appliance also deploys patches from one of the largest libraries in the industry covering Windows, Mac and third-party applications such as Adobe Reader. The product proactively scans your endpoints to ensure the latest patches have been applied -- keeping you one step ahead of cybercriminals.
Migrate to the latest OS and protect endpoints from malware

Step 3 - Migrate to the latest OS and protect endpoints from malware

The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance enables you to address your operating system migration needs by automating your endpoint migration to Windows 11. The product empowers healthcare organizations to quickly and easily set-up and administer system images and driver installations across all endpoints and to quickly re-image any malware-infected devices. 
Track and manage mobile assets remotely

Step 4 - Track and manage mobile assets remotely

KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager enables administrators to easily track, inventory, manage and secure mobile devices across their hospitals, clinics and medical offices. It also allows for better control over mobile devices, with an ability to locate or wipe clean devices that are lost or stolen.
Administer appropriate access rights by restricting user privileges and USB access

Step 5 - Administer appropriate access rights by restricting user privileges and USB access

KACE Privilege Manager enables healthcare cybersecurity professionals to manage administrator rights while maintaining a least-privileged environment. KACE Desktop Authority works to restrict access to USB ports to defend the network against data theft and malware intrusion.
Ensure that sensitive documents are scanned securely

Step 6 - Ensure that sensitive documents are scanned securely

For healthcare organizations, error-free medical chart and insurance card scanning is critical. Connecting scanners to server-hosted electronic health records is a common challenge. KACE RemoteScan provides seamless and stable connectivity for scanners, cameras and digital x-ray machines in any virtual desktop environment and helps you meet HIPAA compliance requirements.
