Key security initiatives
CK Birla Hospitals was in urgent need of securing business critical and confidential healthcare data. One of the main challenges was unrestricted access to internet over various application protocols, absence of uniform anti-virus solution and unrestricted access to external storages (USB & Optical drives). For this, S K Rudra and his team implemented centralized monitored and managed Unified Threat Management. (UTM), as the only route for all the outgoing and incoming traffic of the organization. It established gateway IPS, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, application filter and web filter in place. It further, enforced identity coupled with Media Access Control -based access control policies.
CK Hospitals implemented the centrally monitored and managed anti-virus solution across all the three hospitals to identify, scan and enforce anti-virus policies in end-point devices. The anti-virus solution helped secure business critical and confidential data through USB and optical drive policies in end-points. Post these solution implementations, the organization did not suffer any system downtime or business critical data loss due to cyber/ virus attack.
