Protect Patient Data the Smart Way & Automate IT Security Management 



IT managers in hospitals are facing tough challenges due to increasing digitization. ​


On the one hand, they are expected to create the technical foundation for digital care services. On the other hand, they must ensure the protection of sensitive patient data in an increasingly complex IT landscape in compliance with legal requirements, such as the NIS Directive.  


To top things off, all of this should be done with a small team at low cost.

USE CASES

Excellent Protection Against Data Theft and Malware

Do you know which patient data leaves your hospital – and via which channels or devices? Can you ensure that only authorized persons use, copy, and file confidential patient data? And can you proactively prevent sensitive patient data from leaving the hospital or being used by third parties? ​ 


Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA is a tool that helps you ensure the comprehensive protection of your patient data. By automating various IT security and service processes, your IT team has more time to focus on the essentials: time to tend to the technical requirements of your patients.

THREAT ASSESSMENT AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON

Trace Data Flows Transparently and Identify Weak Points at an Early Stage 

Gain the ability to maintain an overview of all data transfers, data access, and data carriers used at the push of a button. Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA identifies vulnerabilities and documents forensic information to ensure GDPR compliance.

RISK OF INSIDER ATTACKS AND DATA THEFT

Detect Anomalies and Protect Data Based on Behavioral Heuristics

Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA permanently analyzes all data transfers and contents. In the event of suspicious actions or anomalies, it triggers targeted protective measures such as blocking access or file downloads. This automated approach facilitates the work of your administrators and significantly speeds up response times.

GDPR AND LOGGING

Automated Logging of Data Breaches

In the event of a data breach, Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA automatically logs forensic information to ensure compliance. This allows healthcare facilities to meet the documentation requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation while protecting the privacy rights of their patients and employees. The logging data is protected in accordance with works council regulations. 

PATIENT DATA PROTECTION IN THE HIS

Extensive Encryption of Your Patient Data in the Hospital Information System

The hospital information system is the central repository of all patient data, but it is not an encapsulated system as data can be exported at any time. Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA prevents data misuse and automatically encrypts all patient data in the background – in the network share, in folders, and on all storage media. As a result, your data is protected from access by unauthorized third parties at all times.

ADDITIONAL PROTECTION AND MONITORING OF YOUR PATIENT DATA

Emergency File in the Event of HIS Downtime

Should the hospital information system fail, patient data must be available locally on workstations. However, this data must be stored in encrypted format and must not be accessible by AD users, but only via a local emergency account. With Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA, you can implement this procedure in just a few clicks to ensure optimal compliance.

SECURITY RISK: RETENTION PERIODS AND DELETED DATA

Secure Data Deletion in Accordance with GDPR 

Securely deleting personal data from primary systems is part of the data security requirements and data subject rights under the General Data Protection Regulation. With the Secure Erase feature, your IT team will erase file folders, files, and empty sectors of the hard drive in a manner that prevents recovery.

MANAGE TERMINALS, INTERFACES, AND DICOM DATA

Systematically Manage and Release Access Rights and Data Flows

Unauthorized access to interfaces and devices within the IT infrastructure represents a high security risk. The provided access control functions empower IT to control any access to devices and interfaces as well as data transmission channels and data imported via open standards such as DICOM. Moreover, the password-protected interface control setting console prevents unauthorized configuration.

SECURE DATA EXCHANGE WITH THE CANCER REGISTRY

Encrypt External Data Carriers with Ease

Hospitals that treat cancer patients must report information to the cancer registry once a month. Due to the high data protection standards imposed on this patient data, many clinics still opt for paper-based processing, which consequently results in high labor costs. A faster and more cost-efficient way is to encrypt the data stored on external data media. Both hardware- and software-based encryption can be implemented with just a few clicks.

MALWARE PROTECTION AGAINST RANSOMWARE

Automatically Block Unauthorized Applications

Built-in application controls prevent malicious programs from being executed by ensuring that only authorized applications are launched on machines. The lists of trusted applications and vendors can be customized as needed. Application control takes place in real time and does not affect the performance of the client infrastructure. 

ENHANCED PROTECTION AGAINST DATA ESPIONAGE AND SABOTAGE

Automated Protection Against Unknown Malware in Real Time

Today’s malware is not detected reliably, allowing it to reside in the network undetected and strike whenever the hacker chooses to. With the optional Matrix42 Automated Endpoint Security module, you can prevent any malware activity, including data theft and exfiltration, even if it bypasses your antivirus filter. Even threats whose origin cannot be attributed to a file, such as fileless or in-memory threats, are detected. 

ENHANCED PROTECTION THROUGH INFRASTRUCTURE ANALYSIS AND CMDB MANAGEMENT

Automatic IT Asset Recognition and CMDB Update

Inadequate information about IT assets, their network activity, and missing configuration tracking opens the door to serious security issues. With the optional Secure Discovery and Dependency Mapping module, you will always have up-to-date CMDB data of your IT infrastructure, know the configuration of your medical IT services, and can prevent unplanned changes of and access to your clinical networks.

REMOTE MANAGEMENT 

Remote Maintenance of Medical Devices External to the Network

Many medical devices cannot be integrated into the internal hospital network. Nevertheless, in the event of security incidents or urgent maintenance tasks, it is necessary to manage such systems remotely. Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA offers the corresponding remote maintenance tools.
