“Every day ransomware is becoming more relevant, so our backups and disaster recovery are key to our success. Protected Health Information (PHI) is some of the most valuable data a hospital manages. The relationship with BridgeHead continues to grow as we move forward with our ability to provide robust backup and recovery across our datacenters. Above all, we have to make sure we protect our patients.
