ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Endgame, the leader in endpoint protection against targeted attacks,
Research from Forrester identified 2017 as the year when healthcare breaches would accelerate, largely due to consolidation of major healthcare providers and explosion of highly-valuable genetic and biometric patient data. This prediction has proven to be true, with over 200 US hospitals or health providers breached in 2017 to-date. Two of the most widespread ransomware attacks this year, WannaCry and NotPetya, crippled hospitals and healthcare providers globally. As healthcare organizations witness the severity of these targeted attacks, they've turned to Endgame for protection against the next-generation of attackers and to meet security compliance requirements.
"Visibility and fast response across our network are critical to protecting our infrastructure," said Matthew Witten, CISO for Martin's Point Health Care. "Endgame's ability to provide full-stack protection gave us the confidence to replace traditional-AV solution and give comprehensive protection at the earliest stages of the attack lifecycle."
To validate HIPAA compliance, Coalfire tested Endgame's coverage against malware binaries and APTs for Windows endpoints. Endgame successfully met the breadth of HIPAA security and privacy requirements including:
Protection from Malicious Software (164.308(a)(5)(ii)(B))
Security Incident Procedures (164.308 (a)(6)(i))
Response and Reporting (164.308(a)(ii))
Audit Controls (164.312(b)))
