Network Segmentation for Healthcare

Network Segmentation Challenges

Network segmentation is an important tool in the healthcare environment, but it presents various challenges in its implementation.

Complexity Management

Implementing network segmentation in the medical device environment can be complex, especially considering the diverse range of devices and systems involved. Coordinating segmentation efforts across various departments and facilities requires meticulous planning and expertise.

Interoperability Concerns

Medical devices often rely on interconnected systems for data exchange and functionality. Segmenting networks without disrupting these vital connections demands a delicate balance to maintain seamless interoperability while bolstering security measures.

Traditional NAC Segmentation has Reduced Efficacy for IoMT Devices

Network segmentation protects devices and your network by grouping devices and dividing the network into smaller parts. Unfortunately, traditional NAC projects can only readily identify enterprise devices, not IoMT, making NAC implementation ineffective in the healthcare environment.

Network Segmentation in the Healthcare Environment

Armis Centrix™ for Medical Device Security enables secured network segmentation implementation by discovering all assets, communication paths and access controls. It then builds virtual barriers that restrict unauthorized access to sensitive medical data and critical systems. By limiting the scope of potential breaches, organizations can mitigate the risks posed by cyber threats, including ransomware attacks and data breaches.

Continuous Automated Enforcement

Armis Centrix™ for Medical Device Security integrates with your existing tech stack to automate the enforcement of your network segmentation policies efficiently and continuously. Continuous automated enforcement allows for automated quarantine and segmentation of compromised devices until your security team can properly address and remediate the problem. This makes your security response more agile and able to react before an attack can become widespread and affect your entire environment.

University Health Network Relies on Armis to See Their Entire Inventory

University Health Network, the largest teaching hospital in Canada, relies on Armis to track every device across their entire healthcare network. Armis enabled them to see value quickly, discover devices they didn’t know existed, and track and remediate recalls from oversight and governing boards. Armis also works alongside their existing integrations and dashboards to provide data that is immediately actionable.
