HP Security Platform to Protect Healthcare Facility Clinical Data

HPLogo1 EbizHewlett-Packard Co.'s security platform has been selected by Lake Health, a system of hospitals and health care facilities, to boost information security structure and reduce system downtime.

Lake Health has implemented the HP ArcSight security information and event management platform that works to provide a centralized view on the organization's security infrastructure, HP said Thursday.

The healthcare provider uses ArcSight SIEM with the goal of identifying threats, preventing disruptions and reversing attacks.

The platform, which builds on HP’s ArcSight Express and ArcSight Logger services, has been integrated with Lake Health’s existing system.

Lake Health intends for the platform to help its staff manage technology and allocate resources to other investments such as additional doctors and nurses, HP says.

The healthcare provider also looks to enhance data availability, enable medical practitioners to make decisions, oversee cross-platform access to electronic medical records, comply with regulatory requirements and correlate security incidents.
