Adoption of new digital technologies is driving the rapid evolution in healthcare. While digitization provides tools and capabilities to help solve urgent medical challenges and improve patient outcomes, they also make distributed healthcare networks much more complex—and therefore more vulnerable to attack. When considering additional factors such as increasing dependence on remote access for telemedicine, frequent mergers and acquisitions in the industry, and rigorous regulatory requirements, today’s healthcare networks are seeing unprecedented risk exposures.
A secure software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) solution addresses these issues by integrating networking and security capabilities across the WAN edge, access layer, and endpoints. In this way, Fortinet Secure SD-WAN and SD-Branch solutions are able to provide advanced visibility, security, and protection for today’s rapidly expanding and evolving healthcare networks.
