You want a trusted MSP that can provide your healthcare company with a layered approach to security, which includes high-level encryption, multi-level authentication, anti-virus, malware and ransomware protection, and frequent security patches. Look for network security that not only aims to make your organization compliant but goes beyond what is minimum to safeguard your network and your data.

Aside from the patient’s personal information, their medical history and treatments are also included. These information can save lives so it is important that they are never lost. Fortunately, you can have your trusted MSP to automatically backup and replicate important data on a secondary data center, separate from your main data storage. This way, if something happens to your main data storage, you can quickly perform data recovery using the backup files.
No. 5: 24/7 Network Monitoring
