Cisco, Narayana Health Team Up to Protect Data in Telemedicine Services

As digital transformation brings more users, devices and applications online, corporates and even hospitals are struggling to protect malware attacks.

To counter this, Cisco recently teamed up with Narayana Health, a multi-speciality healthcare service provider, to deliver speciality healthcare services in remote areas.

“Skype is passe. It is not an embedded network. Especially in the field of telemedicine, where security is of prime concern,” says VC Gopalratnam, President of Information Technology, Cisco India.

Stating that malware and cyberattacks are not limited to data systems, he points out that viruses tend to attack patients as well as medical data.
