Case Study: Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

World-class pediatric hospital efficiently secures state-of-the-art healthcare delivery.

Securing State-of-the-Art Healthcare Delivery

Patient safety is the number one concern at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Keeping unwanted or malicious devices off the hospital’s network is vital. Breaches could severely jeopardize patient care, sensitive data, the hospital’s reputation and more.

This is why Great Bay Software’s Beacon Endpoint Profiler was chosen as a vital component in the network design for the hospital’s $900 million 24-story building. By automating the profiling and authentication of all IoT and other non-supplicant devices the hospital eliminated the need to devote multiple IT technicians to manual, time-consuming tasks. Beacon continues to simplify device onboarding, expedite network troubleshooting and help ensure regulatory compliance.
