Health care institutions have a wide range of needs concerning Internet access, from simple medical searches to monitoring or assisting surgery via webcam, not to mention personnel break scheduling over the Web or giving Internet access to patients.
Institutions are aware of the importance of setting up proxy and content filtering solutions in order to protect themselves in matters concerning Internet usage and to optimize business traffic. CIOs in this sector face numerous challenges such as:
Medical personnel is extremely diverse. Staff members often have very different work schedules and Internet usage requirements. It is important to enable flexible scheduling for personnel, as well as more personal browsing times.
Under certain conditions and for certain users, authorizing access to content that may be recognized as illicit in your country. A psychologist may need to perform searches on drug sites, for example.
Ensuring continuity of service 24/7, 365 days/year.
Optimizing specific streams in case of specific events followed by the medical establishment over the Web.
Authenticating users in your public areas and logging their actions, as well as applying a filtering policy to protect the institution.
