Atos Ramps Up Cybersecurity Protection for Healthcare Organizations

International digital transformation company Atos today launched what it's calling the "first comprehensive cybersecurity solution for today's healthcare market" to increase protection across all levels of patient care.

For Atos, it’s not whether or not a healthcare organization is going to be a victim of a cyberattack—it’s a matter of when.

So, the global IT services corporation today announced an expansion of its digital healthcare portfolio with a new security offering.

The company, which has North American headquarters in Irving, is calling its new launch the first comprehensive cybersecurity solution for today’s healthcare market. The intent is to increase security across all levels of patient care by providing managed security services, cloud security, and identity management.

“Our globally recognized cybersecurity solutions applied to healthcare organizations help ensure patients’ data is kept confidential and simply accessible, especially when time is of the essence for overall health,” said Rick Stevens, SVP and head of health care for Atos North America, in a statement. “Our end-to-end healthcare cybersecurity portfolio is a comprehensive solution that helps healthcare leaders properly align security with their clinical, financial and business objectives.”

Atos says that it believes in the value of health, so it’s working with around 300 healthcare organizations across the country to make the transition to being more volume-focused.

Back in 2017, Atos started its ‘Digital Health Solutions for North America’ to assist payers, providers, pharmaceuticals, and life science companies enhance the efficiency of delivering healthcare solutions. Atos credits studies from that year that showed over 5.1 million people had suffered from a security incident, and 80 percent of American hospitals didn’t have a designated point person to resolve such occurrences.

The full Atos cybersecurity offering now includes three additional security services: Managed Security Services, management for potential threats; Cloud Security, a tool to help secure cloud ecosystems; and Identity Management, a way to protect confidential data.

Atos: A leader in digital transformation

Atos has employees in 73 countries across the world working on cutting-edge technologies and digital transformation for business sectors.

In our second annual print publication, Dallas Innovates 2019—The Magazine, Atos was credited as one of the North Texas companies working on big ideas that could have the potential to make an impact, here and beyond. Atos partnered with Jacobs Engineering Group—a Dallas-based global provider of technical, professional, and scientific services—to bring data capture and analysis through predictive, condition-based maintenance and field services optimization solutions to a variety of industries.

In the future, Atos has plans to push the envelope around quantum computing by opening three R&D centers and innovation labs to focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence, one of which will be built in Irving.
