Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC, Boston) has deployed Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Palo Alto Networks’ PA-4000 Series next-generation firewalls to improve visibility and control of applications and enhance threat protection.
The 621-bed medical center is leveraging Palo Alto’s threat prevention capabilities to replace its existing URL filtering point-solutions, according to the company. BIDMC is also looking to simplify its security infrastructure, it says.
