Zscaler, a leader in cloud security, has announced that it has teamed up with CrowdStrike and Imprivata to deliver a Zero Trust cybersecurity solution from device to cloud that’s custom-made for medical institutions. The new Zscaler integration with the Imprivata Digital Identity Platform will provide visibility, threat protection and traceability for end-to-end, multi-user, shared device access control that are required for organisations to meet regulatory requirements, including HIPAA and HITECH.
Through the new Zscaler integration with Imprivata, Zscaler is able to take Imprivata context and leverage the existing integration with CrowdStrike Falcon Zero Trust Assessment (ZTA) score to control access to applications with adaptive, risk-based policies.
As ransomware targeting healthcare organisations increases, more advanced cybersecurity is needed to protect sensitive patient data and maintain uninterrupted operations for the continuous delivery of life-critical medical services. With this new integration, users of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange platform, Imprivata OneSign and the CrowdStrike Falcon platform will be able to more effectively adopt a Zero Trust architecture that offers granular access management, threat protection and traceability capabilities to better protect against ransomware.
Hospitals and healthcare organisations face a unique security and identity challenge. With shared workstations among staff, they must determine how they can distinguish who is doing what on which device and enforce access control policies and threat protections based on both the user who logged in at the time and the device’s posture. They also need to keep track of all user activity with logs indicating their actions for traceability and compliance requirements.Click below to share this article
