Senseon for healthcare and pharmaceuticals
The healthcare and pharmaceutical industries are particularly attractive targets for cyber-attackers. Patient data can sell for almost fifty times the price of financial data, making hacking the often poorly secured systems of healthcare institutions extremely profitable. Better protected pharmaceutical companies offer a more lucrative prize, as alongside patient information hackers could gain extremely valuable drug research data. Poor employee cyber hygiene, complemented by an abundance of insecure personal devices in the workplace, increases risk. Furthermore, given the importance of having immediate access to patient data, and the financial risks of being locked out, healthcare institutions may often chose to pay ransomware requests, making them an attractive target.
How Senseon helps healthcare
Senseon offers the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries a lifeline. The platform monitors network and endpoint activity, and uses Investigator Bots to provide further context about potential threats by investigating from an outside view. This unique blending of senses - known as AI Triangulation - allows the platform to accurately detect even the most subtle or advanced attacks. By offering the functionality of multiple approaches in one user-friendly platform, Senseon allows even the most time-pressured and budget-restricted healthcare professionals to keep their IT systems, and their patients, secure.
