ForeScout Technologies, Inc.

CAMPBELL, Calif., Feb. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today's healthcare providers face more pressure than ever from federal and state regulations to secure sensitive patient data and protect network resources. Furthermore, there is an exponential increase in the number of doctors, nurses, consultants, patients and visitors requesting network access for mobile devices. Faced with these challenges, how does IT provide secure access while maintaining sensitive information, optimizing resources and complying with industry regulations such as HIPAA?

The "Overcoming Network Security & Compliance Challenges Impacting Healthcare Enterprises" webinar seeks to examine those challenges and introduce solutions that can help healthcare IT departments meet their goals.

The program includes Larry Allen, certified healthcare CSO, and Matt Bohall, senior network security engineer for Miami Children's Hospital, along with additional security experts. The presenters will explore the following issues:

  • Growing demand among mobile and medical devices for network access
  • Expanding regulatory compliance requirements
  • Network infrastructure demands
  • Control of managed and unmanaged devices
