SDN Fx Healthcare
Avaya SDN Fx for Healthcare is a unique networking solution that enables IT to simply connect, protect and manage the growing number of medical devices deployed throughout healthcare facilities.
Healthcare organizations are currently implementing thousands of connected medical devices in order to improve patient care, increase staff efficiencies and reduce overall costs. However, it is well known that these medical devices are under significant attack from hackers seeking to tamper with controls and gain access to more sensitive areas of the network; such as medical databases.
Avaya SDN Fx Healthcare’s enables healthcare organizations to:
• Deploy advanced network segmentation to reduce catastrophic breaches. This technology very quickly and easily creates virtualized network segments that isolate users, medical devices, and patient records from unauthorized access.
• Automate onboarding of new medical devices. As medical devices connect to the healthcare network, they are automatically assigned custom security and flow parameters that dynamically follow the device wherever it is connected on the network. Different devices are put into different segments – without reachability in or out – for isolation and protection.
• Manage inventory of thousands of medical devices. Addressing one of the greatest challenges to an Internet of Things healthcare model, the SDN Fx Healthcare management system provides the location and status of all on-boarded medical devices in the network, dramatically improving IT efficiency.
