Bring Your Own Device in Healthcare
April 5, 2012
Many healthcare providers are enticed by the idea of allowing caregivers, administrators, and patients to use their own tablet computers, notebooks, and smartphonesto access healthcare resources. However, they are concerned about the security risks—and the impact on IT operations. HP Networking is helping healthcare providers realize the potential of BYOD initiatives by allowing caregivers and administrators to use their own mobile devices in a way that is secure and operationally efficient. New capabilities in HP Identity Driven Manager (IDM), a plug-in module to HP PCM+, provide a simpler way to enforce network access control that is ideal for BYOD.
