Netsurion differentiators include the following:
Overcome Shortages in Cybersecurity Staff and Expertise
Overcoming advanced threats requires more mature technology, skilled people, and diligent incident response than in the past. SOC-as-a-Service (SOCaaS) from Netsurion enables healthcare organizations to mature their security posture quickly and at scale without the cost and overhead. Comprehensive cybersecurity functions include Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM), vulnerability management, endpoint protection, threat intelligence, and behavior analytics, all in a single-pane-of-glass console.

Reduce Cybersecurity Complexity and Enhance Effectiveness
With over 1,000 cybersecurity vendors in the market, selecting the right technology is incredibly difficult. Netsurion consolidates security controls, technology, and expertise for a turnkey solution with stronger cybersecurity, better resource utilization, and optimized budget. Our HIPAA security report, for example, makes threat detection and response actionable and helps prioritize healthcare organization remediation. Netsurion future proofs cybersecurity to detect threats wherever they arise, across networks to cloud to endpoints.

Bring Enterprise Security to Smaller Healthcare Organizations
Mid-sized healthcare organizations face the same threats as Fortune 500 firms but lack defensive resources. Netsurion’s Managed Threat Protection platform cuts out hardware and hiring expenses while delivering enterprise-class security at a fraction of DIY costs. Unlike building your own Security Operations Center (SOC) that takes a staff of 8 for 24/7 coverage that can cost upwards of $700,000 annually, our managed platform approach enables healthcare organizations and channel partners to ramp up quickly and scale over time as needed. Netsurion also provides MITRE ATT&CK integration that includes known cyber criminal techniques for threat reconnaissance and forensic investigation. We also detect configuration errors and insider threats that increase cybersecurity risk in the healthcare industry.

We understand the cybersecurity challenges faced by smaller healthcare organizations and integrate with and improve upon traditional defenses like Anti-Virus and Firewalls.

Brief Overview

Healthcare is changing, with increased challenges in IT modernization, data privacy, and avoiding cyber threats. Healthcare organizations are often targeted by hackers looking for Protected Healthcare Information (PHI) data and bypassing any HIPAA compliance barriers. The critical nature of patient healthcare means ensuring uptime and avoiding ransomware is crucial. The shortage of IT resources and expertise along with stretched-thin clinical patient care due to the COVID Pandemic created near crisis conditions for smaller hospitals, medical practices, and independent pharmacies for example. Maintaining trust and brand reputation is also key in the healthcare community.

Healthcare industry challenges that Netsurion addresses:
• Increasing risks of technology disruptions impacting patient outcomes
• Limited visibility into advanced threats
• Complex Privacy and HIPAA compliance requirements
• Challenges with expanding attack surface across network, endpoints, and cloud
• Lack of 24/7 monitoring and cybersecurity expertise
• Rapid response to cybersecurity incidents

Software alone won’t improve an organization’s security posture. A defense-in-depth approach using experts, processes, and technology is necessary to predict, prevent, detect, and respond to today’s targeted and sophisticated attacks. Netsurion’s Managed Threat Protection provides healthcare institutions with 24/7/365 visibility and advanced threat protection, all as a managed service.

Organizations of all sizes must also adapt to the changing threat landscape and further invest in detection and response capabilities. With their finite IT and security teams and resources, healthcare organizations must focus on reducing the attack surface that makes them vulnerable in the first place. Netsurion has developed a solution that fills a gap in the marketplace with an all-in-one platform and service that is a managed service and yet still affordable.
