IRVING, Texas, Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, today announced the launch of the first comprehensive cybersecurity solution for today's healthcare market. The full offering extends from security consulting services to now including managed security services, cloud security and identity management, increasing security at all levels of patient care.
Recent studies show more than 5.1M individuals in 2017 were impacted by security incidents and more than 80 percent of US hospitals do not have a qualified security officer to resolve these issues.
To meet the growing threat, Atos works with almost 300 healthcare organizations across the U.S. to evaluate their strategy against cyber threats, modernize technology foundations, and secure valuable patient data. Atos' full cybersecurity offering now includes three security services in addition to its consulting services:
Managed Security Services – Ranked fifth largest managed security provider worldwide by Gartner based on 2017 revenue estimates1, Atos' managed security services implement security incident and even management, security operations, endpoint threat prevention and advanced threat detection for healthcare organizations.
Cloud Security – With more and more patient data and healthcare processes moving to the cloud, it is essential that such data be protected to the highest standard. Atos Cloud Security offers data loss prevention, encryption and cloud access security broker services to help healthcare organizations secure their cloud ecosystems.
Identity Management – Identity management enables health organizations to secure patient information by controlling and auditing access to confidential data through biometrics, two factor and public key infrastructure (PKI) authentication, as well as other various authentication methods.
"Our globally recognized cybersecurity solutions applied to healthcare organizations help ensure patients' data is kept confidential and simply accessible, especially when time is of the essence for overall health," said Rick Stevens, Senior Vice President & Head of Healthcare, Atos North America. "Our end-to-end healthcare cybersecurity portfolio is a comprehensive solution that helps healthcare leaders properly align security with their clinical, financial and business objectives."
The healthcare security offering is an expansion of Atos' Digital Health Solutions portfolio to help payers, providers, pharmaceutical and life science companies enhance the technical efficiency of healthcare delivery.
Atos full portfolio of cybersecurity healthcare solutions will showcase at the HIMSS19 Conference at booth #2979 February 11-15 in Orlando, Florida. Atos will also participate in a panel discussion on prescriptive healthcare security at its booth Wednesday, February 13 at 11:30 a.m.
