Medical City Prioritizes Network Security
Source: Cisco Systems
King Fahad Medical City (KFMC) is one of the largest independent facilities of its kind in the Middle East. KFMC aims to provide the best possible diagnostic, therapeutic, and rehabilitative services, and technology plays an important part in achieving this goal. One of the top priorities was to prevent the introduction of threats such as viruses, worms, or spyware, which might disrupt critical network services. KFMC decided to implement Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC) Appliance, a powerful solution that enforces security policy compliance on all devices that attempt to connect to the network. The proactive capabilities of Cisco NAC enabled the relatively small IT team at KFMC to gain control of 4000 network endpoints immediately.
