“With Tempered Networks’ my team was able to securely and quickly integrate very specific business and clinical systems across two smaller clinics we acquired, without disruption or requiring much time of their IT staff. We had estimated it would take over a year with alternative technologies, but with Tempered it took less than 2 months, was a third of the cost, and we know our overlay networks and endpoint are segmented and cloaked.”
Network Administrator, West Coast Health Care Organization
The main challenge our customers encounter when connecting separate health IT networks is the cost and complexity of deploying traditional IT solutions to integrate across enterprise, building, virtual, and cloud infrastructures. The time, expertise, and budget needed to provision and manage firewalls, VPNs, ACLs, etc. for multiple networks and overcome IP conflicts and interoperability issues is so complex as to make it nearly impractical and yet won't prevent hacker reconnaissance and lateral attacks.
People and Process Challenges
Our customers have eliminated the complexity, attack vectors, and costs associated with traditional IT solutions by adopting an identity-centric model for healthcare environments that’s simpler and more secure. With IDN, you can deploy secure and micro-segmented networks in minutes, rather than days or weeks compared to traditional IT solutions. And even better, the cost is a fraction of those alternatives. Now they can easily accelerate integration efforts for separate networks, while delivering superior availability and quality of care.
Our customer was able to securely integrate disparate health networks after an acquisition of two smaller clinics. With superior connectivity and segmentation, the hospital was able to deploy instant network overlays to glue together clinical systems across 3 separate networks. And unlike traditional IT solutions, with Tempered Networks all devices and systems are isolated across their own encrypted and micro-segmented overlay network that can’t be violated.
*Traditional IT solutions are the use of firewall rules, NAC, VPNs, switch and router ACLs, digital certificates, cellular modems, VLANs, etc.
*FTE - hours worked by one employee on a full-time basis.
Tempered Networks’ scalable orchestration engine was designed to be extremely easy to use with no advanced technical training and requires little to no change to existing infrastructure. Unlike the many complex, fragile, and disruptive steps associated with traditional IT solutions, our customers eliminate complexity, cost, and attack vectors through point-and-click policy orchestration.
First, our overlay network transparently creates cryptographic machine identities for every device to eliminate spoofing.
Second, every protected devices' network connections are automatically authenticated and authorized between trusted devices before data transport and exchange. Our unique network-level authentication creates verifiable trust segments that can't be discovered or exploited.
Third, all connections are transparently encrypted and encapsulated enabling non-disruptive and secure traversal across any type of network - public or private. Every device can now be quickly connected and protected across any LAN or WAN, segmented across any network and made invisible to hackers.
