Rubrik -  - How Healthcare Organizations Drive Cyber Resiliency with Rubrik


How Healthcare Organizations Drive Cyber Resiliency with Rubrik

More and more healthcare organizations are driving digital transformation as they look to improve the patient experience, reduce costs, and streamline processes. The downside, however, is that this shift is making healthcare organizations even more lucrative to cyberattackers–especially when combined with the volume of computer-stored patient information and EHR data. Healthcare remains one of the top industries targeted by ransomware and saw a 350% increase in Q4 2019 alone. To learn how you can help protect your organization from ransomware, download our eBook: How Healthcare Organizations Can Develop an Effective Ransomware Remediation Plan. You’ve heard us say it before. Backups are a critical defense against ransomware. However, advanced ransomware is now targeting backups, which only increases the chances of ransom payout as organizations lose their last line of defense. Rubrik was designed to make backups immune to ransomware and accelerate recovery after an attack. Data stored in Rubrik is never available in a Read/Write format, preventing your backups from being compromised or deleted. In the event of an attack, quickly recover to the most recent clean state with just a few clicks–minimizing downtime and data loss. Here are two stories of how healthcare organizations are leveraging Rubrik to up-level their…

Despite challenges of re-platforming and re-provisioning infrastructure, ensuring consistent security, and navigating complex network integrations, Brandt also seized this opportunity to transition to a multi-cloud model. Take a look at how Brandt and his team made these changes as painless as possible, and what…
