Trend Micro Selected by Adventist Health System to Secure Web Apps and Keep Patient Data Safe

Innovative offering provides comprehensive web app vulnerability detection and protection

DALLAS, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With the increase of high-profile attacks on sensitive Web applications, Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in security software, recognized the need to develop innovative security solutions to address and mitigate these threats. Now available globally, Trend Micro™ Deep Security for Web Apps is being used by forward-thinking organizations such as Adventist Health System (AHS), a faith-based health care organization, to provide vulnerability detection and protection for Web applications, keeping data safe while helping with regulatory compliance. As a result, the organization has realized lower costs, and increased efficiencies while securing sensitive Web applications from escalating attacks.

"Deep Security for Web Apps' proactive approach gives us greater visibility into our vulnerabilities while reducing administrative costs and effort dramatically," said Mark Dunkerley, messaging and domain services team lead, Adventist Health Information Services. "With the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), combined with HIPAA regulations, it was crucial for us to find an easy-to-use solution to keep patient information safe and secure. Working with Trend Micro helps us address our current challenges posed by increasing threats and while still enabling IT agility."

The solution helps AHS improve security through comprehensive monitoring and centralized management capabilities across multiple locations. AHS supports 45 campuses and employs 70,000 individuals, providing care to 4.5 million patients each year with inpatient, outpatient and emergency room visits. A detailed case study about how AHS benefits from Trend Micro is available here.

"The high value of data in Web applications makes them a favorite target for hackers, and several recent high-profile breaches have shown how easily app vulnerabilities can be exploited," said Bill McGee, senior vice president and general manager, cloud and data center security, Trend Micro. "Organizations need specialized, application-aware security to combat these attacks. With Deep Security for Web Apps, we've combined vulnerability detection with multi-layered protection to deliver a holistic application security solution."

Powered by the Trend Micro Deep Security platform, Deep Security for Web Apps is an integrated SaaS-based solution that continuously monitors for application vulnerabilities and provides real-time protection, while helping to meet government and PCI requirements. With both automated and expert scanning, resources can be concentrated on security risks, not false positives. Virtual patching along with Web Application Firewall (WAF) rule generation allows for high-risk vulnerabilities to be quickly remediated. It also features unlimited, globally trusted SSL certificates, including Extended Validation (EV) at no extra cost.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...
