The Healthcare industry has constantly been in the firing line of hackers for quite a few years now. The reason behind the following limelight is the worth this data carries on the darker side of the web. Canon Medical has now decided to counter this issue and carry the mantle of cybersecurity in the Healthcare domain by unveiling a new multi-level cybersecurity solution, Gateway Platinum.
Canon has made this solution available to its existing and new customer suites with a premium service plan. What’s so premium about it though? It provides healthcare givers the ease of live monitoring, proactive and predictive technologies and a 24/7 support from Canon Medical’s cybersecurity risk management team.
If you are still curious to know more, following are the three premium features of Gateway Platinum:
- Barracuda NextGen Firewall Protection: It helps prevent malicious attacks from bad actors with a NextGen firewall and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). It provides real-time notifications with on-demand reports and network health alerts. A continuous data feed is given to customer’s security information and event management (SIEM) system, and correspondingly an alert engine notifies the customer and Canon Risk Management team of the attacks.
- InnerVision® Plus with Windows 10: This helps in increasing productivity, boost system availability and isolate healthcare facilities imaging systems from outside threats before data can be damaged or exposed with proactive and predictive remote support. Streamline system cleanup, and troubleshoot devices with data analysis capabilities, on-demand system diagnosis, prevention and early detection alerts, and environmental monitoring status including temperature, humidity and helium levels.
- Secure VPN to Canon Medical Control Center: Canon Medical provides a secure site-to-site VPN tunnel with multi-factor authentication (MFA). It uses the highest encryption standard for secure data transfers between site(s) and the Canon Medical Control Center.
Canon acknowledges the cybersecurity concerns of the present day. Dominic Smith, Vice President, Service Field & Sales at Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. echoes the same thoughts by saying, “Our customers are faced with keeping patient information secure, while seamlessly sharing critical clinical information across the systems and networks – it’s a complex challenge. We had these complexities in mind as we designed Gateway Platinum – a sophisticated cybersecurity solution with multiple layers of protection. The new offering gives our customers peace of mind that their systems, network and patient information are secure, and a well-trained risk management team is available to help withstand an attack.”
