revolutionizing the way healthcare companies gather and process their data
Information Technologies have been revolutionizing the way healthcare companies gather and process their data. Be it in laboratories or in hospitals, mass amounts of information are stored and processed with an efficiency that allows for leaps in investigation. But in a sector where information integrity and confidentiality is paramount, their security weighs in the choice of solutions.
"With the Akamai Web Application Accelerator service we can deliver the stellar performance our customers expect without expanding our infrastructure."
— Sheridan Richey, VP of Engineering, Advanced MD
The integration of data systems in the health industry was perhaps comparatively more pondered than in other industries. This is, after all, a sensitive sector that depends not only in the speed of communications but chiefly on their reliability and confidentiality. As soon as processing was done within networks, the benefits became obvious: for patients as much as for researchers.
With the tools at our disposal, we can guarantee better speeds in both processing and information exchange, whle at the same time we can increase your defense against DDoS attacks and intrusions.
This is also a densely regulated sector and its agents must maintain a continuous update effort in order to meet the demands of the regulators. Akamai’s platform fulfills all the security norms - namely, for the health industry, they meet the demands of the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).
