Digitization in the hospital - with highest security!

Digital infrastructures and modern medical IT solutions are to be further expanded in hospitals. To this end, the innovation and hospital structure funds will be continued with state funding.
Drawing from the KHZG:
Subsidies for investments in the future

Digital infrastructures and modern medical IT solutions are to be further expanded in hospitals. To this end, the innovation and hospital structure funds will be continued with state subsidies.

Special regulations apply to hospitals that are classified as critical infrastructures (KRITIS) under the KRITIS Ordinance of the German Federal Office for Information Security. They were already provided with funds to improve IT security in the Hospital Structure Fund Ordinance before the Hospital Future Act (KHZG). The main objective of the KHZG's funding provisions is now to strengthen medical care - with the inclusion of IT security: 15% is earmarked for IT security in every funding project. In addition, there is a separate IT security funding category for non-KRITIS hospitals.

Your application, our support

Your partner for infrastructure security

We develop security products for critical infrastructures for various security requirements, whether by law or for organizational reasons of our own definition. As a rule, the products have one thing in common: they serve as a secure backbone for business applications or support them with security functions to safeguard digital identities and processes.

In doing so, we focus on four key topics:

1. The platform of the German health care system

For hospitals in particular, there is a special challenge in connecting the various specialist services to the telematics infrastructure (TI). The secunet data center connector and the connector management system, for simple administration of the connection of hospital infrastructures, already make the first TI specialist services accessible today. Involved in the development of the TI during the last decade, secunet will continue to shape the further developments of the TI as a competence provider.

Medical devices - just like IT infrastructures - need comprehensive protection against external influences, but at the same time an opening to increase connectivity. secunet edge for medtec fulfills precisely this seemingly paradoxical requirement: like a protective cover, it wraps itself around the medical device and decouples its usually long lifecycle from that of the IT environment. IT security is guaranteed "at the edge" - without impacting medical devices, hospital infrastructures or treatment processes.

At the same time, secunet edge for medtec enables secure and trouble-free connection to internal and external IT services and IoMT platforms. Integrated sensor functions guarantee real-time anomaly detection through continuous monitoring of information flows. Malfunctions can be quickly remedied and operational safety ensured.

A consistently secure mapping of data transfer, storage and processing as well as the networking of resources in an OpenStack environment - this is what the cloud OS SecuStack offers through transparently integrated cryptographic mechanisms. SecuStack thus also enables entry into cloud computing where no suitable cloud strategy has yet existed due to strict security regulations or a lack of trust.

SecuStack thus forms the basis for a security-hardened "outsourced" IT infrastructure for hospitals and providers of medical applications "as-a-service".

secunet safe surfer secures the biggest gateways for malware: Internet access and phishing e-mails, making unrestricted Internet use at critical workstations safe.

Based on remote browser isolation, secunet safe surfer executes unknown and potentially malicious browser content in an isolated and secured surfing environment - the internal network is thus protected from intruders and data leakage. secunet safe surfer is operated like a browser and just as easy to handle. No chance for malware such as Emotet or tempting links in phishing emails.
