Endpoint Protection for Healthcare

Cyberattacks Targeting Healthcare Organizations

Cyberattacks on organizations within the healthcare vertical have been increasing over the past decade. Medical devices are highly connected, offering physicians better oversight of patient care. The added connectivity also increases the attack surface. Compound this with many medical devices running on unsupported, outdated operating systems with known vulnerabilities, and the risk level soars.

Protecting Sensitive Patient Data

A valuable target for cybercriminals, healthcare organizations are entrusted with sensitive patient information, which includes PHI and PII. Bad actors can quickly sell this high-value data on the dark web. Organizations in this sector are likely to pay when hit with ransomware as patient lives are on the line.

Mitigating HIPAA Violations and Safeguarding Reputation

At the end of December 2021, multiple healthcare providers were forced to cancel surgeries, radiology exams, and other services because they had fallen victim to cyber attackers using the "Log4j" exploit to access provider and patient data through the Java-based vulnerability, demonstrating the need to improve security for this technology-reliant industry.  

Cybersecurity breaches in the healthcare vertical can uncover HIPAA violations, which can carry hefty fines and criminal charges on top of damaging the reputation of the organization. With human lives and business longevity on the line, healthcare organizations must invest in strong cybersecurity measures and continually reevaluate them to ensure they are robust.

ThreatLocker® Key Uses

Proactive Approach to Cybersecurity

Unlike antivirus or traditional EDR, ThreatLocker Allowlisting solution puts you in control of what software, scripts, executables, and libraries can run on your endpoints and servers. This approach stops not only malicious software in its tracks but also stops other unpermitted applications from running. This process greatly minimizes cyber threats and other rogue applications from running on your network.

Preventing the Weaponization of Legitimate Tools

ThreatLocker Ringfencing™ controls what applications are able to do once they are running. By limiting how software can interact on your devices, ThreatLocker® can reduce the likelihood of an exploit being successful or an attacker weaponizing legitimate tools such as PowerShell.

Limiting Application Hopping for Administrators

Elevation Control puts IT administrators in the driver’s seat, enabling them to control specific applications that can run as a local admin without giving users local admin rights.

With applications such as Quickbooks that need to run with local admin access; Elevation control can limit that access without impacting operational workflow, which can prevent the further spread of an attack, like application hopping, in case there is a breach in the endpoint.

Control Over Storage Devices and Data Access

ThreatLocker Storage Control provides policy-driven control over storage devices, whether the storage device is a local folder, a network share, or external storage such as a USB drive. Storage Control allows you to set granular policies, such as blocking USB drives or blocking access to your backup share except when your backup application is accessed.
