Delta Dental of Arizona Selects cStor to Advance Strategic Cybersecurity Plan
Organization continues proactive measures to protect patient healthcare information and corporate-wide data assets
Scottsdale, Ariz. September 25, 2018 – cStor, a leading provider of data center, cloud and cybersecurity solutions, announced today that Delta Dental of Arizona has chosen cStor to assist in advancing their strategic cybersecurity plan to add new protection measures to their critical patient and corporate data. The new plan will be designed to provide a sustained, long-term information security framework that will enhance existing security protocols.
As the largest dental insurer in Arizona, Delta Dental of Arizona has been continually advancing their information security practices, and leaders saw a clear need for a broader cybersecurity strategy that can more holistically evolve as the threat environment evolves. The expanded plan will encompass data, infrastructure and physical location security, and will be implemented by the Delta Dental team with support from cStor. The project entails a comprehensive assessment of their current environment, creation of a long-tern plan and a specific transition timeline and roadmap.
“Since we deal with sensitive health care information, security is the highest priority. As such, we have taken the additional step of engaging cStor experts to help us advance our efforts, so we can stay proactive on security as we continue our growth plans,” said John Bruley, Director of Information Technology at Delta Dental of Arizona. “The threat environment is about as dynamic as it gets, and although security has always been a key focus, we know we must continually advance our defenses. We’re committed to ensuring security not only for our subscribers and members, but also for all of our employees and practitioners.”
“If companies only employ cybersecurity point solutions, they are going to miss something – potentially something big that could be devastating to the overall business,” said Andrew Roberts, Chief Cybersecurity Strategist at cStor. “The key is establishing a good foundation with a comprehensive security framework, getting buy-in from executive management, conducting a thorough gap analysis and then identifying a roadmap and timeline for closing the gaps. We’re confident this plan will help Delta Dental of Arizona create long-term value and security for their members and providers by ensuring they have everything in place to help them grow and evolve as security threats advance.”
