Enable Secure Access, Protect Users & Apps, and Control Data – From Anywhere

As organizations pivot to enable a remote workforce, it is critical to provide secure access, protect users and applications and control data- from anywhere. With a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) model, you can eliminate the added cost and complexity of using multiple point products that leave gaps in your security posture. We will discuss the need for immediate, uninterrupted access, securing the application and data via point-to-point session-level security, zero trust models and minimizing the attack surface.

  • Minimizing the Spread of Infectious Diseases in Patient Care Facilities Recorded: Aug 5 2020 30 mins
    Ken Puffer, Healthcare CTO – ePlus | Dr. Jeff Goldstein MD, MS | David Gosman- HP Inc. | Paige Kirley- Meridian
    Technology is a top consideration for many healthcare providers as a way to improve the patient experience. Everything from remote, contactless check-in, to informational kiosks, and physician charts have been digitized with the goal of speeding up delivery of care and improving patient outcomes. Physical interaction with technology in patient care facilities is unavoidable. Devices like IV Pumps, EKG Machines and more have served patients and caregivers for a long time.

    While healthcare has a long history of developing cleaning procedures to address these devices as a possible vector for the spread of pathogens, the current pandemic has broadened the concern to include more devices. Having a technology approach that allows for the safe handling by patients and caregivers is critical to reducing the risk associated with the daily handling of devices.

    In this webinar, you will hear from healthcare experts on the solutions available to address the delivery of positive patient experiences using technology and the verticalized solutions available to reduce the spread of pathogens.
