Ransomware Protection for Hospitals

When a ransomware attack hits, hospitals are forced to shut down access to the EHR, including disaster recovery environments. This is an inconvenience for any business, but in healthcare this puts lifesaving care at risk.

Imagine you could access Epic EHR production data, while still defending against the attack. Then, hospitals could continue providing high quality care and IT could keep the system offline as long as needed.

With a new solution from Cloudticity and Sapphire Health Consulting, hosted on AWS, this is being made possible. Read about the ransomware solution here or schedule a free conslutation today.

Protect Patient Data

For hospital IT dealing with ransomware, it’s understandable that there will be a degree of hesitation before shutting the system down. And it’s easy to succumb to pressures to turn it back on prematurely. However, this can allow patient data to get in the wrong hands. With our ransomware protection for Epic EHR, you can keep patient data safe while keeping hackers out.

reduce RPO

Reduce RPO

Recovery point objective (RPO) measures the maximum amount of time an organization can go without a data backup when recovering from a disaster. For most hospitals, RPO is measured in hours. But with our solution RPO will be mere seconds behind the point of failure.


Access EHR Data During an Attack

Traditionally, defending against ransomware in healthcare means shutting the EHR down, including DR environments, which means the hospital can no longer access patient data. With our solution, hospitals can access a read-only version of Epic production, which is only seconds behind production.

Continue Serving Patients

The old way of defending against ransomware was to shut the whole EHR down. But then, you're at the mercy of the bad guy, as hospital operations are in lock jam, waiting for the attacker to give up. It doesn't have to be that way anymore. Continue serving patients and providing life saving care while protecting patient data.
