REVOLUTIONIZING THE WAY HEALTHCARE COMPANIES GATHER AND PROCESS THEIR DATA
IT has revolutionized the way healthcare companies gather and process their data. Be it in laboratories or in hospitals, mass amounts of information are stored and processed. But in a sector where information integrity and confidentiality are paramount, security must be part of the solution.
"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 has been reviewed more vigorously than in other industries. This is, after all, a sensitive sector that depends not only on 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; at the same time we can increase your defense against DDoS attacks and intrusions.
This is also a densely regulated sector and all companies must maintain a continuous update effort in order to meet the demands of the regulators. Akamai’s platform fulfills all the security requirements for the health industry standard, the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).
