Why It’s Time for Hospitals to Become Immune to Ransomware

Hospitals and other healthcare organizations (HCOs) are increasingly singled out by cyber criminals for ransomware and other attacks. Not only are patients’ sensitive records being targeted, but also – as the FBI warns – their intellectual property or credit card information. The primary reasons for the HCO vulnerabilities are outdated security architectures, and overall lack of IT security experts. Isolation technology provides an appealing alternative to traditional security methods, and prevents, rather than treats, malware and phishing attacks.
