The Challenge

Healthcare is dynamic. Due to innovations in legislation and regulations, automation, and the new way of working at multiple locations, developments never stop. That is why Dimence Group was looking for a way to boost its cybersecurity in a strategic way, relying on a trusted partner.

The vast majority of the more than 2,800 employees of Dimence Group work on an outpatient basis, which creates a major IT challenge. “We want to offer people convenience in their workplace. People want to be able to work anywhere and have the relevant information at their disposal. This also concerns sensitive patient information. That is a great challenge, ” says René Rust, Head of Computerization and Automation at the Dimence Group.

Previously conducted penetration tests and a reference from a trusted peer in the healthcare sector ensured that Orange Cyberdefense was able to guide them in the search for the best suited security solution.

The Project

Dimence Group opts for a two-step security.

The first layer in this is email security. A POC using Proofpoint clearly showed it superiority over the previous solution in terms of management functionalities and administration convenience, as well as filtering out unwanted e-mails. This helped to bring the number of e-mail related incidents down to zero. With Proofpoint, Dimence Group can also move forward in the future. Since their employees work with sensitive patient data, encryption is important. Fortunately, Proofpoint. offers capabilities to create awareness and education among the 2800 end users as well.

The second step in the chosen two-step security model is endpoint security. For example, everything that might bypass the email security is captured by the endpoint security solution. To minimize risks, the Dimence Group opts for the endpoint security solution from Palo Alto Networks. After running several POCs, the choice for Palo Alto Networks Traps quickly became clear.
