How CheckPoint will help the hospital

Check Point’s Harmony and Quantum solutions will play a key role in providing comprehensive protection against sophisticated cyber threats for Kokilaben. This hospital is established as one of India’s most advanced and highly specialized care facilities.
Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital’s approach involves replacing its manual data aggregation process, previously from multiple firewalls, email and endpoints with an AI-powered, centralized system to streamline workflows and optimize resources efficiently. This was addressed by Check Point’s Maestro Hyperscale Network Security, fueled by AI and big-data threat intelligence that has revolutionized threat identification, patch application and remediation. This includes providing the hospital with visibility into open ports, empowering them to remediate vulnerabilities independently. Additionally, Maestro scales the Check Point Quantum Security Gateways on demand, maximizing appliance capacity to meet the hospital’s dynamic workload requirements. The hospital has also been deployed Check Point Harmony Endpoint, enhancing endpoint security without compromising performance, thus increasing productivity and reducing user friction. In the next phase, the hospital aims to implement Check Point Email and Collaboration to fortify email security.
This consolidated approach empowers the hospital’s security team to maximize their security posture, as all data is now accessible through a unified dashboard, optimizing operational efficiency and productivity. As a result, the hospital can scale security operations cost-effectively, keeping pace with its growing digital infrastructure.
