Protecting Healthcare Information with Proofpoint

Protect patient data against insider threats, data loss, and cloud expansion.

The healthcare industry has long been a favorite target for cyber criminals. And the COVID-19 pandemic has only made it worse. Attackers have intensified their efforts to gain valuable data like vaccine trial information, protected health information (PHI), and financial data. And for their part, healthcare institutions are expanding their attack surface by moving to the cloud and letting more employees and patients log in remotely. These institutions also face increased risk from both malicious and well-intentioned insiders.

Proofpoint provides a people-centric approach to safeguarding sensitive data in widely distributed healthcare networks. Our information protection solutions are easy to deploy and maintain. You can use them to build a robust secure access service edge (SASE) or security service edge (SSE). We help you defend your people and their sensitive data against accidental mistakes, attacks, and insider risk. Our protective shield extends across cloud services, email, endpoint, and on-premises file shares.
