Securing healthcare applications and data on AWS requires extra diligence, focus and a strong(er) architecture, due to the nature of the data being stored and used, as well as HIPAA and other regulatory requirements. In this session, the Verge Health executive team will discuss the business drivers of migrating a 24×7 critical healthcare system onto AWS. The technical team will then outline how Verge Health built a 24×7 system that spanned multi-Availability Zones using Lambda, Auto Scaling and PAN-OS/VM-Series automation features.

You will walk away with specific, actionable architectural patterns resulting in a usable model for deploying Palo Alto Networks devices on AWS to protect healthcare workloads for stronger security, higher availability, and limitless scalability.
