Karlovy Vary Hospital, located in Bavarian mountains of the Czech Republic, is one of the largest health care facilities in the region, as well as one of the area’s largest companies and employers. Since the mid-’90s, the facility and its IT needs outgrew the existing network, and management realized that this was leaving sensitive patient data vulnerable to security breaches. That’s when a local IT company stepped in with a comprehensive network and security upgrade, built around the ZyXEL Unified Security Gateway. Now patients’ medical data is protected from outside intruders and the hospital has an efficient and cost-effective means of managing network traffic — saving money and gaining peace of mind.
"Hospitals are often targets of hackers, and that is why the ultimate security of sensitive medical information for our patients is essential to us. The ZyXEL Unified Security Gateway has become the integral part of our network security; the integration thereof helped our IT section save time by more than 50 percent. Thanks to the regular update of a virus database, the equipment had run for more than six months without any outside intervention and virus damage,"
