To protect patient data and streamline IT productivity, MidMichigan Health selected Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite, L.E.M.S.S. MidMichigan partnered with Lumension®, a global leader in endpoint management and security, for its industry leading, defense-in-depth security suite that integrates Lumension® Antivirus, Lumension® Patch and Remediation, Lumension® Application Control and Lumension® Device Control into a single agent.
MidMichigan, which comprises of 6,500 employees and volunteers, needed to ensure their systems were secure without hindering people’s ability to do their jobs. “When we started searching for a management and security product, the IT team prioritized a list of features. Security came out on top; our systems have to be secure,” said Jim Czyzewski, Clinical Desktop Support Supervisor, MidMichigan. “Since implementing L.E.M.S.S., we have been able to reduce the amount of time we spend out in the field fighting security threats. Malware attacks have gone down from 2-3 per week down to zero and we can now spend the time on the organization’s priorities.”
A security product that did not impede employee performance was another criteria needed at MidMichigan. “There is a fine line between security and performance. People have to be able to do their jobs effectively without security products hindering the performance of the computer. The more agents you put on, the more you will impact performance,” Czyzewski said.
Commenting on MidMichigan’s implementation of L.E.M.S.S, Chairman and CEO of Lumension, Pat Clawson said, “We really enjoy working with MidMichigan. Over the years, we have grown with them and the implementation of L.E.M.S.S. has allowed them to gain visibility into what happens across their expanding network.”
