Healthcare Providers Flock to NinjaOne for Automated Endpoint Management

Healthcare Providers Flock to NinjaOne for Automated Endpoint Management

By Greg Tavarez

Every organization relies on endpoints – devices like computers, laptops and tablets – to function. However, the stakes are especially high in healthcare, where these devices play a critical role in delivering patient care and safeguarding sensitive medical data.

Ensuring the uninterrupted operation, proper configuration, consistent patching and robust security of these endpoints is paramount to protecting patient privacy and preventing disruptions in care. Unfortunately, healthcare is a prime target for cybercriminals, particularly ransomware attackers. Look at the recent attack on UnitedHealth, for example.

According to the Office of Information Security of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), over 630 of ransomware incidents impacted healthcare organizations worldwide in 2023 alone. These attacks can cripple healthcare systems, hindering patient care and jeopardizing sensitive medical records.

Further compounding the challenge is the ongoing trend of healthcare provider consolidation. As organizations merge or acquire others, their IT teams are tasked with managing and securing a growing number of devices spread across multiple locations, often with limited resources. This dispersed environment can create vulnerabilities that ransomware attackers readily exploit.

To mitigate these risks, healthcare providers must prioritize a comprehensive endpoint security strategy. This includes endpoint detection and response, patch management, data encryption and user education.

By prioritizing a robust endpoint security strategy, healthcare providers can build resilience against cyberattacks and ensure the continued delivery of high-quality patient care. And helping healthcare providers with their endpoint security strategies is NinjaOne.

NinjaOne automates the hardest parts of IT and equips more than 17,000 IT teams with visibility, security and control over all endpoints. And it achieved 100% year-over-year growth of its healthcare customer base as healthcare organizations automate endpoint management to run their operations. More than 600 healthcare customers support providers and patient care with the simplicity, visibility and control of IT operations and endpoint security that NinjaOne delivers.

So why do healthcare providers choose NinjaOne over competitors?

Firstly, it improves IT support and service delivery. By automating endpoint management for a wide range of clinical devices, servers and administrative workstations from a centralized platform, NinjaOne saves IT teams valuable time. Technicians no longer need to travel between campuses, which allows them to focus on more strategic initiatives.

NinjaOne also safeguards IT assets and critical data. Users can automate patch management and data backups across all endpoints, minimizing vulnerabilities and bolstering healthcare organizations' resilience against escalating cyber threats.

Finally, NinjaOne reduces cost and complexity. It consolidates multiple point solutions into a single platform. This translates to lower costs for healthcare IT teams, a simplified IT environment and a reduced attack surface for cybercriminals.

“In healthcare, better IT and security mean better outcomes for patients. NinjaOne automates the hardest parts of IT, so devices are always up to date, freeing up stretched teams to focus on more strategic issues,” said Rahul Hiranai, senior vice president of product management at NinjaOne. “Our growth in the healthcare sector over the last year is only because of the ingenuity of our customers who have proven to increase productivity, decrease downtime, and lower IT costs. We’re committed to continuing to help organizations solve their toughest IT challenges in the years to come.”
