Case Study
NHS South East Coast Ambulance

NHS South East Coast Ambulance wanted to control all removable devices and enforce encryption across all endpoints used by staff that held or allowed access to personal data. In addition, SECAmb needed a solution that was easy to deploy and compatible with existing management and security products already being used.

Industry: Healthcare
Controlling ports and managing removable device usage, DSPT requirements
Implementing Endpoint Protector's Device Control and Enforced Encryption
Complete control, intuitive and efficient monitoring of data, encryption, granularity

CoSoSys’s Channel Partner, Trusted Technology, faced many challenges while strengthening data security at NHS South East Coast Ambulance (SECAmb):

  • Controlling Ports and Managing Removable Device Usage: The organization lacked control over the use of removable devices such as USB drives. Removable devices can often be insecure and offer significant risks of data breaches to organisations. This is an issue for all organizations, but moreso for healthcare organizations like SECAmb that have access to particularly sensitive information.
  • Endpoint Encryption: SECAmb aimed to enforce encryption on all endpoints that held or allowed access to personal data to mitigate the risks associated with potential data theft or loss. For example, paramedics and other ambulance staff are provided with body worn cameras during their shifts. If the footage ever needed to be passed on to other authorities, then that data must be encrypted to preserve security and maintain the privacy of all those involved.
  • Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) Requirements: Healthcare organisations like SECAmb are held to standards when it comes to keeping their information systems secure. If they do not meet these standards, confidential data is deemed at risk. SECAmb needed a solution that allowed them to implement device control while also meeting DSPT requirements.
  • Compatibility and Ease of Deployment: Perhaps most importantly, SECAmb needed a solution that seamlessly integrated with their existing management and security products, ensuring a smooth deployment process with minimal disruption to their operations.
