This year has brought unprecedented challenge and opportunity for healthcare organizations as they look to secure their patients, clinicians, care teams, endpoints and data.

With the shift to remote work, heightened demand for telehealth and virtual care, and more devices and connections on the network, there has never been a more critical time to address the cybersecurity strategy within your healthcare organization.
