Case: Lääkärikeskus Aava
In a medical centre such as Lääkärikeskus Aava, the patient record system is at the heart of all activities. The system contains a lot of sensitive information that cannot end up in the wrong hands. If the system stops working, all business operations come to an immediate halt. Data security is therefore critical.
"Ransomware has become increasingly popular with cyber criminals around the world and there is no end in sight. We simply had to react", says Tero Lainpelto, ICT Manager at Aava.
The Office 365 office cloud relied on Microsoft's own data security solutions, which always seemed to lag a little bit behind. Moreover, reports were difficult to run.
Cygate supplied the Cloud App Security software by Trend Micro for Aava's Office 365 cloud service solution. Aava acquired server capacity from Cygate as a hosted service. The servers are protected with Trend Micro Deep Security software.
"It was extremely easy to get started. We had the product up and running on the same day we got the licence keys. We only needed to enter the location of our office cloud in the web portal, and we were set to go", Lainpelto explains.
The solution has reduced the amount of malware on workstations to a fraction of what it used to be, and has made reporting more efficient. The solution has also made it easier to detect malware distributed via email and cloud-based file sharing. Moreover, maintenance has become simpler.
