Virtualization and microsegmentation are helping to better protect electronic medical records and other critical systems and data at Nebraska Medicine, says the health system’s CIO, Brian Lancaster.Microsegmentation is an outgrowth of Nebraska Medicine’s move to virtualize its infrastructure, he explains in an interview with Information Security Media Group.”A couple of years ago, we had a need to migrate from one data center to a new private cloud data center. As part of the process, we took all the systems that were physical and virtualized as many as we could, which ended up as a high degree of virtualization,” Lancaster says.”We sat down with our strategic partner, VMWare, to look at what else we could to do give us benefits, and that led us down the path of network virtualization, with the primary or initial purpose of microsegmenting our electronic medical record environment.”
