Bitglass provides agentless data & threat protection for Office 365 and BYOD

CAMPBELL, CA – January 25, 2018 - Bitglass, the Next-Gen Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) company, today announced that John Muir Health has fully deployed Bitglass to protect Office 365 and BYOD access. John Muir Health is a not-for-profit healthcare organization in the San Francisco Bay Area with a network of more than 1,000 physicians and over 6,500 employees.

As with all healthcare firms, John Muir Health must ensure security and appropriate handling of protected health information (PHI) in order to remain compliant with HIPAA. At the same time, they operate in a competitive marketplace, necessitating constant innovation to improve the patient experience. This need drove John Muir to adopt cloud and mobile (including BYOD) aggressively, both of which drive PHI and other sensitive data beyond the firewall, requiring a new approach to security.

“We have hundreds of unmanaged devices in use by clinicians at John Muir Health and we need to properly manage the PHI and PII data within our environment,” said Bill Hudson, VP of IT Operations and ACIO at John Muir Health. “Bitglass’ next-gen CASB solution provides the security and malleability that we need to protect data across our environment.”

John Muir Health chose Bitglass for its unique Next-Gen CASB solution that enables security and compliance across any device, without the need for agents on endpoints. With the Bitglass CASB, John Muir is able define granular data loss prevention (DLP) policies and prevent unauthorized access in compliance with HIPAA, all in real time.

Bitglass’ Next-Gen architecture also delivers Zero-Day protection for any app and any device, future proofing security for John Muir Health’s evolving and expanding cloud footprint.
