Vertical markets addressed specifically: gateprotect presents case studies on Healthcare, the Energy Sector and Education

Hamburg, 28th May 2013 – Industry expertise is crucial in the area of IT security for providing customers with optimal advice and tailored, effective protection. In order to be able to address vertical markets in a targeted manner, gateprotect has now published three case studies for the fields of energy, healthcare and research & education. The four-page brochures deliver selling points in the form of information on the particular requirements and challenges of the respective industries, and take a closer look at the legal backgrounds and document best practices with innovative next generation firewalls by means of user examples.

In the areas of healthcare, energy, and research & education, there are specific needs and legal requirements for the protection of particularly sensitive data and network infrastructures. gateprotect has collected valuable experience in these industries during the past ten years and successfully implemented a great variety of complex technical solutions.

In the healthcare sector, highly sensitive patient data must be permanently available for medical staff at various locations, but also protected in a reliable manner at the same time. Nevertheless, it must be warranted that the data exchange between mobile devices, home offices, practices, health insurances, authorities and laboratories works smoothly and fast. gateprotect security solutions for doctors’ practices, hospitals, and contractors in the healthcare sector, support the secure handling of sensitive patient data.


Through its decentralized structure, the broad range of tasks and the compelling need to maintain security of supply, the energy sector is facing especially complex challenges. From the generation of power; all the way through storage, transport and energy trade; and up to sales and billing, all procedures in a company need to be stable and secure. Likewise, the underlying IT networks are complex and handle large volumes of sensitive data. The next generation UTM firewall appliances from gateprotect provide for all-round protection for different, interconnected networks of supply companies thanks to comprehensive security features.


Similarly, in educational institutions and research laboratories, a great multitude of important data comes together. Personal data, examination documents or research results must be administered in a secure manner. Therein, IT administrators are facing the challenge of integrating remote workstations and computing centers for students in the network. Public workplaces must be protected against viruses, spam and spyware and the use of download platforms, games and social networks should be controlled. Here, IT security solutions from gateprotect can be an efficient contribution to the protection of the institution, whereas investments in IT security remain at a moderate level.
