Security in Aava must be at the highest possible level. The patient information system has a lot of sensitive information that must never end up in the wrong hands. This is why Aava was proactive and upgraded its Microsoft® Office 365™ Security with Trend Micro™. In one month, Trend Micro™ Cloud App security, with its ability to detect known and unknown threats, cut the number of malware reaching workstations at Aava to a fraction of what it was before.
