Allina Hospitals & Clinics
Allina Hospitals & Clinics recently upgraded to Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 to gain efficiencies in securing and managing its 27,000 PCs. Allina has cut security remediation time in half, giving IT staff more time to help employees deliver patient care. Allina joined an early adopter program for Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010, the successor to Forefront Client Security, which connects to System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2 and R3 to deploy and manage endpoint protection. This time savings represents a U.S.$25,000 annual productivity gain. Allina saved another $97,000 by eliminating 10 servers because of the new software's efficient design.
