Originally founded as a single hospital in 1965, UUHSC is now made up of a network of community clinics, academic colleges, and various institutes and centers.
Bo Mendenhall, principal information security analyst at UUHSC, knew that proactive steps needed to be taken in order to protect the data being sent out over the network.
UUHSC was mindful of these considerations, and opted to beef up its wireless network security before a problem presented itself.
UUHSC sought a solution that would protect the information on its network without affecting the availability or integrity of the data, since it was critical that healthcare providers had access when they needed it.
After testing several options, UUHSC opted for AirDefense's Enterprise offering.
Using these sensors, UUHSC is able to locate rogue access points with precision and block them before they are able to threaten the wireless network.
