Why choose HealthGuard?

A partner that is invested in your success.

Prior to the DecipherRisk™ solution, the hospital did not have a holistic view of our cyber risk or a comprehensive way to manage it. With the platform, we are able to document without spreadsheets, analyze the risk, and communicate more effectively. More importantly, the system allows us to know who is accountable for mitigating the issues in our risk register and track the progress. HealthGuard has become the cornerstone of our security program.
