Zscaler Partners with Imprivata and CrowdStrike to Announce New Zero Trust Security Solution for Healthcare Organizations
SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zscaler, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZS), the leader in cloud security, today announced that it has teamed up with CrowdStrike and Imprivata to deliver a zero trust cybersecurity solution from device to cloud that’s custom-made for medical institutions. The new Zscaler integration with the Imprivata Digital Identity Platform will provide visibility, threat protection and traceability for end-to-end, multi-user, shared device access control that are required for organizations to meet regulatory requirements, including HIPAA and HITECH.
Through the new Zscaler integration with Imprivata, Zscaler is able to take Imprivata context and leverage the existing integration with CrowdStrike Falcon® Zero Trust Assessment (ZTA) score to control access to applications with adaptive, risk-based policies.
As ransomware targeting healthcare organizations increases, more advanced cybersecurity is needed to protect sensitive patient data and maintain uninterrupted operations for the continuous delivery of life-critical medical services. With this new integration, users of the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™ platform, Imprivata OneSign®, and the CrowdStrike Falcon® platform will be able to more effectively adopt a zero trust architecture that offers granular access management, threat protection, and traceability capabilities to better protect against ransomware.
Hospitals and healthcare organizations face a unique security and identity challenge. With shared workstations among staff, they must determine how they can distinguish who is doing what on which device and enforce access control policies and threat protections based on both the user who logged in at the time and the device's posture. They also need to keep track of all user activity with logs indicating their actions for traceability and compliance requirements.
“Cyberattacks on healthcare organizations are at an all-time high, and protecting patient data is critical to maintaining trust,” said Dhawal Sharma, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Zscaler. “Zscaler’s integrations with Imprivata, in addition to CrowdStrike, provide much needed help to healthcare organizations in heir journey to a zero trust architecture. We’re aiding workers and technicians with least privileged access to the healthcare information they need to provide care and maintain the privacy and security of patient data.”
