HealthLink SecureIT is gaining huge traction with close to 1,000 sites around the country now using it.

The service gives health professionals easy and secure access to the private Connected Health network.

HealthLink has been a leading provider of access to Connected Health since its inception in 2005.

Unlike other Connected Health service providers, HealthLink offers three SecureIT options; Gateway (on premises firewall device), HealthLink SecureIT Cloud (enables access from Could-based systems) and Enterprise (rack-mounted for large on-premises installations).


Cyber security top of mind

HealthLink client manager Mike Harvey says cyber security is an increasing concern for the health sector, as evidenced by recent cyber attacks.

“Security is of utmost importance to the health sector and HealthLink SecureIT adds a crucial layer of protection against the ongoing threat of cyber-attacks,” Mike says.

“HealthLink’s SonicWall firewall solution delivers superior protection and is at the forefront of security technology.”

Customer support is available from HealthLink’s local team in Newmarket in Auckland.

“SecureIT is incredibly reliable. However, if support is needed then expert assistance is just a phone call away.”


Reliable and cost-effective

Mike says GPs, and more recently pharmacies, are benefitting hugely from SecureIT because of its reliability and cost-effectiveness.

Key features include meeting key health sector security standards, integration with other HealthLink services, automatic updating of virus protection software and flexible configuration to meet an organisation’s unique requirements.

“SecureIT is a premium, fully managed solution designed for healthcare organisations wanting to comprehensively utilise internet access in a secure and reliable manner and its success is being reflected in the uptake of users that we are seeing.”
