ITHealth collaborates with Rubrik to help NHS organisations increase cyber resilience

The partnership will enable NHS organisations to further mitigate risk and defend against ransomware by ensuring vital back-ups and rapid recovery.

ITHealth, trusted cyber security provider to the NHS, is delighted to announce a new partnership with Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security ™ company. The collaboration expands ITHealth’s already extensive portfolio by adding vital back-up protection and recovery to its offering; an important additional layer of any NHS organisation’s defence strategy (complimenting security visibility and threat protection already provided by ITHealth). Jointly, the companies will ultimately help NHS organisations to increase their cyber resilience.

Ransomware can have severe consequences for the NHS, including disruption of essential services, compromised patient data, reputational damage, financial losses and, most importantly, impact to patient care. It’s why there is a government-led initiative and strong focus to increase cyber resilience within the healthcare sector – to implement proactive, preventative measures to preserve or restore business continuity when a security incident occurs. Pillars 4 and 5 of the strategy – ‘Build secure for the future’ and ‘Exemplary response and recovery’ – make it clear that budgets should account for data back-up and that an effective recovery plan is critical to becoming truly cyber resilient. It’s why managing data back-ups effectively also features heavily in the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (see evidence codes 7.3.4 to 7.3.6, v6).

Rubrik Security Cloud is the leading data security platform built upon Zero Trust principles and a unique back-up architecture, designed for cyber recovery and the era of cyber resilience. Through this new collaboration with Rubrik, ITHealth customers will be able to keep its data safe and available; spot data risks and threats; plus, recover data faster, safer and with more confidence to ultimately ensure continuity of patient care.

“The volume of cyber-attacks against healthcare is increasing exponentially and we know that it’s simply a case of ‘when’, not ‘if’ an attack will occur”, said Andy Sheret, Head of Business Development at ITHealth. “Every NHS organisation must ensure that it’s fully equipped to minimise both the impact of a cyber incident and the time it takes to recover from it. Ensuring back-ups and recovery should be an essential part of any NHS organisations’ strategy and we’re pleased to now be able to offer Rubrik to our customers.”
