Netsurion and EventTracker Are Better Together in Securing Healthcare Data for Mid-size and Multi-location Firms; Will Exhibit at HIMSS 2017

February 09, 2017

Netsurion, a leading provider of managed data and network security services for multi-location businesses, and EventTracker, its subsidiary and an innovator in security information and event management (SIEM), will demonstrate how they are better together in securing data for small to mid-size and distributed healthcare organizations at HIMSS 2017, booth #694, Feb. 19-23 in Orlando. As a newly combined firm, the companies are better positioned than ever to protect their customers against increasingly sophisticated network breaches.

Healthcare data theft is a pervasive problem that will only continue to grow. According to Ponemon Institute’s Sixth Annual Benchmark Study on Privacy & Security of Healthcare Data, nearly 90 percent of healthcare organizations suffer data breaches. This number is so high because 1) hackers today are organized criminals who are well-funded with labs and plenty of time for R&D and 2) personal health information is more attractive due to its lasting value. When identities are stolen via healthcare data, the amount of money a hacker can generate by opening fraudulent credit accounts in someone’s name makes credit card theft seem like a drop in the bucket.

Reputational damage and revenue loss from a breach headline not only impact individual edge locations, such as clinics and branch offices, but the central, corporate healthcare brands as well. Recent major breaches at health insurers, hospital networks, and medical centers demonstrate that anti-virus, anti-malware, and firewalls alone are not enough to secure organizations from the modern threat landscape.

Netsurion and EventTracker fill this gap. Netsurion will demonstrate its network security and compliance services, alongside its managed solution, SIEM-at-the-Edge, made possible through the Oct. 2016 EventTracker merger. The solution is designed to protect corporate healthcare brands’ edge locations, through the implementation of leading SIEM technology directly on workstations and the combination of security event monitoring capabilities with managed detection and response (MDR). Breach Detection Service, an automated breach alerting platform that gives businesses advanced threat detection capabilities to augment traditional security measures, will also be available for viewing at HIMSS.

Powered by the award-winning EventTracker SIEM platform, these services give businesses an affordable level of protection from cyberthreats that was previously only available within large enterprises.

EventTracker’s solutions supplement Netsurion’s solutions by protecting small- to mid-size healthcare organizations with security inside the perimeter of their networks. EventTracker’s SIEMphonic co-managed security service includes SIEM, intrusion detection, vulnerability scanning, threat intelligence, and HoneyNet deception technology, implemented either on premises or in the cloud.

The platform provides continuous monitoring for cyberthreats by collecting data from a variety of sources—platform, application and network logs, as well as alerts from intrusion detection systems (IDS) and vulnerability scans. Threat intelligence from a rich ecosystem of global and community sources is merged along with customized honeypot deception technology for local data, to rapidly identify threats and enable investigation and response. Experts at the company’s 24/7 intelligence-driven security operations center (SOC) provide remote administration and analytics.

Reinforcing the strength of the two companies, just this week, Netsurion and EventTracker won Best Managed Security Service and Best SIEM, respectively, in the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, judged by the reputable LinkedIn InfoSec community.

Team members from Netsurion and EventTracker will be on-hand to walk visitors through the solutions and services, and answer questions about the recent merger—named one of ChannelE2E’s Top 100 MSP, CSP, VAR Mergers and Acquisitions of 2016 and the most significant merger between managed security providers on the list. John Christly, Global CISO for both firms, and an expert on HIPAA and PCI DSS compliance with 25+ years in the IT security industry, will also be available for interviews with press and analysts.
