What is healthcare cybersecurity? Vital protection for data, devices, & processes.

patient data security

Protect patient data from ransomware

Secure electronic health and medical records (EHR/EMR) with endpoint detection and response and patch management— powered by advanced machine learning and automation. Bitdefender’s more than 30 layers of prevention and detection technology protect healthcare organizations against ransomware, fileless malware, and other modern attacks and facilitates compliance with key regulatory requirements including HIPAA, PCI, and NST.

Stay ahead of cyber attackers

  • Attractive data
  • Expanding attack surface
  • Limited resources
automated security for patient's data and medical devices

Automate and accelerate response

Healthcare records contain 50+ personal details that cyber criminals consider highly valuable. That’s why the industry accounts for 27% of all data breaches—more than any other. Stay ahead of increasingly sophisticated and frequent attacks with leading endpoint security. Bitdefender GravityZone provides layered detection and prevention against advanced ransomware, polymorphic and fileless malware, and other malicious hacking tactics that lead to data theft or loss.

full vizibility over cybersecurity incidents

Centralize visibility and control

With digital transformation, IoT, and connected devices like glucose and insulin monitors and imaging equipment, the attack surface grows—and so does your risk. Telemedicine leverages cloud workloads which further increases exposure. To protect your patients, organization, and investment, you need a single, centralized healthcare cybersecurity solution defending your entire attack surface. Bitdefender protects traditional endpoints, like computers and tablets, as well as the high-value equipment addressing changing patient expectations and cloud workloads.

Optimized cybersecurity solutions for healthcare companies

Streamline workflows and reduce overhead

Keeping up with cyberattacks without over-burdening your IT team or blowing your healthcare security budget is challenging. Annual cyberattack losses totaled $25 billion in 2019 alone.1 And insufficient automation tools lead to visibility gaps across endpoints, network, and cloud infrastructure. Machine learning makes all the difference. Bitdefender uses powerful analytics to identify and prioritize risks automatically, significantly reducing IT overhead—without compromising security.
