“Having a large number of hospitals to manage means plenty of legacy systems and applications which are difficult to remove,” Moss notes. “This is where Deep Security [Software] virtual patching has been a huge win for us.”
Virtual patching is a multi-layered intrusion prevention solution which shields vulnerable software and operating systems (OS) from known and unknown threats. As such, it can buy customers time until a vendor patch is released or protect legacy systems for which patches are no longer available.
Adding Trend Micro Vision One with Trend Micro™ Managed XDR™ capabilities to the mix has also helped Nuffield work more productively, by “cutting out a lot of noise” and ensuring they only deal with the most critical alerts.
“We know Trend Micro has it covered and if anything critical comes in we get alerted. Trend Micro Vision One has definitely allowed us to run a leaner operations team. We don’t have a dedicated SOC or security resource, so we can focus our time in a better way,” says Moss.
Most recently, Nuffield Health switched on Cloud App Security integration with XDR, for enhanced visibility and control all the way from critical services running on hospital desktops to traffic flowing across cloud applications.
“Everything we’re seeing from [a Trend Micro] Apex One and Cloud App Security point of view is joined up and automated now, which allows us to remove false positives and focus on what needs to be done,” says Moss.
