healthcare, compliance

Healthcare organizations responsible for auditing and safeguarding confidential electronic patient information (ePHI) and electronic medical records (EMR) are prime targets for criminals and nationstate attackers.

Last year, the three major ransomware attacks, WannaCry, NotPetya, and BadRabbit, left some in the healthcare industry crippled for days. These attacks are more sophisticated, more diverse, and easier to launch than ever before. Traditional endpoint security and Next Gen AV might not stop them. In addition, failure to comply with regulatory requirements such as HIPAA and even PCI can result in violations involving major fines. In 2017, HIPAA violation fines exceeded over $17 million. Healthcare organizations need to adopt defenses that protect their ePHI and EMR data from the complete scope of attacker techniques and tactics.

Today’s ransomware can evade endpoint defenses, use advanced persistence mechanisms, and appear as something other than malware, so attackers can bypass signature and IOC-based tools. Enterprises must block ransomware activity on a host at runtime before critical data is lost.

Endgame’s dynamic behavior-based protection blocks ransomware attacks and protects against critical data loss. Our protection monitors all created and active processes to stop ransomware attacks, including BadRabbit, NotPetya, WannaCry, and Locky.
