Healthcare Cloud Security Stack for Microsoft Azure

A Healthcare organization’s success is dependent on data-driven decision making. Inability to quickly access and process patient data due to outdated infrastructure may result in a life and death situation. The healthcare cloud security stack for Microsoft Azure (HCSS) is at the center of IT modernization helping entities use cloud services without losing focus on cybersecurity and HIPAA compliance.

What is Healthcare Cloud Security Stack for
Microsoft Azure?
Continuous View of Vulnerabilities

Regular and repeated collection of vulnerability information with Qualys Vulnerability Management Cloud Agents eliminates the need for establishing scanning windows or integrations with credential vaults for systems.

Complete Security Suite for Cloud and Hybrid Workloads

  • Prevent network attacks with Intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS)
  • Lockdown servers with application control
  • Accelerate PCI-DSS and regulatory compliance with multiple security controls in one product
  • Automate security with powerful, fully scriptable security controls
  • Protect your legacy and current Windows and Linux workloads

HCSS uses the Qualys Vulnerability Management, Policy Compliance, Trend Micro Deep Security, and XentIT Dashboard as a unified cloud threat management solution. Qualys cloud agents continuously collect vulnerability information and are mapped to Trend Micro Deep Security (TMDS).

If Qualys assesses a vulnerability and Deep Security has a virtual patch available the Trend Micro Deep Security virtual patching engages until a physical patch is available and deployed. XentIT’s Dashboard provides a single pane of glass into the vulnerabilities identified by Qualys, the number and types of threats stopped by Trend Micro, and actionable intelligence for further investigation and remediation by security analysts and engineers.

This unified solution eliminates the overhead of security automation and orchestration after migration to the cloud.
