Case Study: New York Hospital Defeats a Potential Ransomware Attack Using Rapid7’s InsightIDR

A large, New York City hospital with a complex environment consisting of more than 4,000 endpoints and a network that includes both on premise and remote users, is dealing with increasing volumes of data and a changing environment that requires around-the-clock security monitoring. The hospital’s cyber security team is responsible for protecting tens of thousands of highly-confidential patient records protected by strict, federally mandated regulations.

When a large number of users began working remotely because of the pandemic it added an extra layer of complexity to their environment, and working manually with multiple consoles added further complexity.
