Privileged Access Management (PAM) is foundational to healthcare IT security
The healthcare industry is under attack as patient records become more valuable to cybercriminals than credit card information.
Cybercriminals target confidential ePHI and digital hospital records.
Ransomware attacks can prevent patients from getting the care they need.
Provide granular access only to users with privileged credentials. Automatically validate and monitor behavior.
Privileged Access Management (PAM) is critical to securing healthcare information
The healthcare industry is under attack and privileged accounts are the prime target. A bad actor armed with privileged credentials can manipulate or steal a patient’s ePHI or take over a medical device.
The increasing need for connectivity and access to shared patient data has exponentially increased the healthcare attack surface.
Healthcare IT teams need to centrally manage, monitor, and protect access to privileged accounts and protected patient information, making PAM essential to ensure compliance, secure data, and minimize human error.
Trusted by top Healthcare Organizations
Comply with HIPAA requirements for role-based access and privileged session monitoring
HIPAA mandates underscore the importance of PAM to ensure healthcare data is private and secure.
Delinea allows you to seamlessly protect patient data from unauthorized access, misuse, and abuse. A comprehensive PAM solution ensures you have complete control and visibility over privileged access to meet compliance mandates.
Reduce the negative impact of cyber threats
Cyberattacks on healthcare are sophisticated, networked, and organized.
PAM enforces the principle of least privilege to prevent credential harvesting and lateral movement by a bad actor who exploits entry-level privileges. Taking a preemptive and a least-standing privilege approach to securing privileged access enables you to detect and block further cyberattack attempts.
Secure remote access to protected healthcare information
Expansion of connected healthcare technology systems, telehealth, and a revolving door of contractors expands your attack surface beyond the network perimeter.
PAM manages and secures remote access to protected healthcare information across the extended organization. It is essential to monitor and report on every privileged sessions, including users outside your network and vendors.
Confirm user identities before granting privileged access to healthcare systems
With Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), you can tie identities directly to privileged account use, so even if credentials are stolen or shared, unauthorized users can’t leverage them for privileged access entry to your healthcare systems.
Delinea’s built-in MFA checks identities at all major access gates, including login and privilege elevation, for an added layer of identity assurance.
Protect workstations for telehealth and remote work
Healthcare providers and medical staff must be able to access your systems securely from their personal workstations.
With policy-based controls and zero trust best practices, people get access only to the systems and data they need, when they need it, without the need for risky local administrator rights.
Govern service accounts to close gaps in connected healthcare systems
To support collaboration and information sharing. Healthcare databases, applications, IoT devices, and other service accounts connect automatically and have many dependencies.
Integration across systems can expose vulnerabilities in legacy technologies that weren’t originally built for connectivity and don’t have proper security controls. If a cybercriminal has access to one connected technology, they can leverage privileged credentials to travel across your entire system.
With so many connected technologies, it’s easy for service accounts to fall off your radar.
