Healthcare Mobile Device Security

Securing critical workflows accessed by mobile devices

Next Steps:


Each organization has itheir unique way of defining what it means to enable mobile devices in the aide of providing improved patient care. The technology solutions can range from creating or leveraging clinical applications that reside on the mobile devices, to virtualizing workflows or just allowing mobile access to the applications and web-enabled services. The most important consideration is how you would secure the critical workflows and data, regardless of how or what types of devices are being utilized.

McAfee’s broad spectrum of security solutions and Security Connected framework enable strong controls and risk management for all types of IT supporting healthcare organizations. Through the network connection points and to the server and virtualization infrastructure supporting the applications and clinical workflows, McAfee provides end-to-end and optimized management regardless of your mobile device strategy and deployment.

Key Benefits

  • Monitor and log across the infrastructure
    As you extend the accessibility of healthcare-related services to mobile devices, monitoring the supporting access points, infrastructure, and databases is critical.
  • Get intrusion protection and threat analysis
    By quickly diffusing and mitigating network anomalies and leveraging McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, you can provide faster protection from emerging attacks.
  • Leverage mobile device management
    Align mobile device use to ensure compliance and decrease security risk. Options for enforcing passwords, utilizing local device encryption of healthcare data, and the ability to remote wipe if a device is lost or stolen are essential safeguards of mobile device management.
  • Reduce risk within infrastructure and cost of management
    Deploy technologies that optimize security for virtualized environments, prevent unwanted and unauthorized changes to servers and controllers, and indicate current IT vulnerability and risk scores. Provide healthcare IT information and controls to prioritize activities, saving time and ensuring high availability of critical IT systems.
