Key Investment Pockets
Source: Primary & Secondary Research and AMR Analysis
- Increase in Cyber-attacks
A growing concern faced by the healthcare sector is the rise in number of cyber-attacks due to limited security measures, which, in turn, is expected to increase the adoption of security solutions. For instance, in 2015, Beacon Health Systems was targeted in a cyber-attack, wherein the patient’s personal and protected health information was hacked.
- Regulatory Requirements and Government Norms
Introduction of supportive government regulations and acts to protect patient information from data breaches is encouraging healthcare providers to deploy advanced cyber security solutions to protect their healthcare data. For instance, The Government of U.S. enacted “the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)” to encourage healthcare organizations to keep healthcare data secure and confidential.
- Increase in Adoption of Mobile Device Applications and Platforms
Sales of mobile device and their penetration are growing rapidly owing to the increase in acceptance of bring your own device (BYOD) among healthcare organizations. The variety of services, applications, and functions available on mobile devices leads to large amount of data being stored on devices and transferred to and from devices. Most of the data stored on mobile devices include sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, user names, and passwords. This growth in dependency on mobile devices encourages organizations to implement effective cyber security solutions, such as IAM, asset management, UTM, and monitoring and analytics.
- Need for Strong Authentication Methods
Healthcare organizations require strong authentication functionality to ensure that authentic employees access internal networks or specific applications. To avoid the threats of password-based authentication, enterprises progressively have moved to multi-factor authentication. Multi-factor authentication is generally performed by adding another element to the traditional user name and password. This could be hardware and software token, a biometric check, or a device authentication step. This implementation of these authentication techniques to reduce the risk of cyber threats encourages users to adopt effective cyber security solutions.
