“With ESP, we can stop hassling over the less important IT stuff and start focusing on improving the big picture for our patients and customers.” – CISO, Fortune 100 Healthcare Company

Improving the big picture at a Fortune 100 Healthcare Company with cloud security.

Overview

The information security team of a Fortune 100 healthcare company selects Evident.io for AWS infrastructure visibility, awareness, security and compliance.

Customer profile

An American managed healthcare company, which sells traditional and consumer directed health care insurance plans and related services, such as medical, pharmaceutical, dental, behavioral health, long-term care, and disability plans. One of the nation’s leading diversified health care benefits companies, serving an estimated 46.7 million people with information and resources to help them make better decisions about their individual health care. A member of the Fortune 100.

Problem

Today’s healthcare IT professionals are under pressure to shift from capital-intensive technology investments to operational expenses that offer flexibility and allow the focus on their core business objectives. Healthcare leaders want to direct capital into cash flow-generating activities and services that allow them to deliver improved outcomes for the customers and business partners while maintaining the highest standard for data privacy and security.

The Fortune 100 Healthcare Company’s migration to the cloud is moving faster and an “all-In” long-term Cloud strategy is the plan. Numerous AWS services are being utilized across multiple lines of business. In a fast-paced DevOps environment, security must work reliably and seamlessly at the speed of business. Innovative and agile business units are leading the way and gaining the success and visibility that the rest of the organization is watching.

Solution

Cloud computing helps this Fortune 100 Healthcare Company focus on health care rather than data centers, digital real estate, and the highly expensive skilled professionals to maintain and operate them. ESP provides continuous awareness, protection, visibility, and monitoring of security and compliance controls into all their AWS Cloud deployments and insures adherence to internal / external requirements for governance, risk, and compliance. This helps the Fortune 100 Healthcare Company address privacy and security as well, which are critical to ensuring customer confidential data is not compromised along with protection of corporate intellectual property.

Results

Evident.io enabled this Fortune 100 Healthcare Company to accelerate the velocity of application migration & development to the cloud by embedding ESP near real-time security capabilities into their DevOps pipeline. With ESP doing the heavy lifting for security and compliance, the cloud enablement and information security teams are able to focus on creating innovative, agile, and collaborative cloud services for their customers and business partners.

With ESP, the Fortune 100 Healthcare Company can stop hassling over the less important IT stuff and start focusing on improving the big picture for their patients and customers. ESP has opened the doors to their expansion and migration to AWS globally.
