Protecting patient data is paramount for Interfaith Medical Center (IMC). The hospital wanted to share medical information via a patient portal while meeting compliance regulations and improving security for connected medical devices as the Internet of Things (IoT) transforms healthcare.

With this combination, the hospital’s small security team can more effectively defend against emerging threats, leveraging network micro-segmentation in addition to application control and behavioral monitoring. With VMware Horizon®, the hospital extends secure virtual desktops to clinicians’ own mobile devices, and locks down hospital-issued devices with VMware Workspace ONETM.
