Healthcare Security & Ransomware Protection
You take care of our communities,
we’ll take care of your data.
Even though we all know how important healthcare is, unfortunately bad actors don’t have such a kind heart when it comes to who they choose to attack. In fact, it seems the more important you are, the more of a target you become. Threats like ransomware, DDoS attacks and network breaches are on the rise in healthcare. Having the right tools to keep these threats at bay has become a critical issue and that’s where FirstLight can help. We offer a large set of solutions ranging from DDoS protection, malware prevention training, DNS protection, cloud-based disaster recovery, managed security, monitoring and security operations center (SOC) services that help stop attacks before they start or recover and mitigate the issue so that healthcare delivery is not affected.
