CULVER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Signal Sciences, the world’s most trusted web defense, announced today that One Medical, the national membership based intelligent primary care practice on a mission to transform healthcare, has implemented Signal Sciences Web Protection Platform (WPP) for comprehensive and scalable threat protection and security visibility for its cloud applications.
The healthcare industry is highly susceptible to identity theft. According to a study by the Medical Identity Fraud Alliance, medical identity theft generates industry losses of more than $30 billion each year1. For organizations like One Medical, which work with a multitude of electronic medical records every day, securing patient and employee data is a top priority. One Medical needed an application security solution that could scale with their cloud first strategy and strengthen their overall security posture while supporting continued compliance with HIPAA.
After evaluating multiple web application firewall (WAF) and runtime application self protection (RASP) solutions, One Medical chose Signal Sciences for its superior security, performance capabilities, and ease of deployment in the cloud. One Medical found that while other solutions were difficult to deploy, and caused a number of false positives detrimental to its business, Signal Sciences WPP improved real-time visibility, decisioning, and action in the application layer.
“We explored a number of solutions on the market, but found that Signal Sciences gave us the most flexibility when it came to configuration by our internal team,” said Mike Katz, senior security engineer for One Medical. “With Signal Sciences, we have real-time visibility on malicious attacks and can immediately take action on those issues. Right after we deployed Signal Sciences, we experienced a malicious IP attempting to brute force authentication into our application. We were able to shut it down immediately.”
“As a leading intelligent healthcare provider, One Medical relies on the strategic application of technological innovation to fulfill their mission of providing the best primary care,” said Andrew Peterson, CEO of Signal Sciences. “One Medical understands the importance of maintaining the most extensive security posture possible to safeguard both the personal privacy and the financial information of its customers. We’re excited to be delivering the solution the company needed to provide secure, high-quality access to healthcare.”
Signal Sciences WPP is the only solution in the application security market that works across any modern architecture, providing the broadest coverage against real threats and attack scenarios. The Signal Sciences platform offers a menu of deployment options, including next-gen WAF and RASP modules, and can also operate as a reverse proxy for legacy applications.
