One hospital saved 60% of its expenses due to the AEC model which relied on existing technologies
One significant hospital in Prague had been refused the connection of its network to the internet for a long time, fearing the data security of its patients and its infrastructure. When the new health technologies were 100% impossible to use without the internet connection, the hospital management finally decided to connect.
The existing infrastructure wasn't ready for such a step at all. The hospital needed a completely new proposal of the network topology so the connection would be safe. The AEC project won the tendering procedure, which was mainly based on adjustments and the boosting capacity of the existing infrastructure. Our concept relied on a robust central firewall and the network segmentation into several separated levels with various degrees of security.
Thanks to the AEC model, the hospital saved about 60% of its costs, instead of having to invest into the complete replacement of the network infrastructure. Subsequently we helped to select appropriate solutions and to deploy them. To conclude, we carried out penetration tests that confirmed the durability of the new solution against possible attacks.
Due to this experience the hospital started longterm cooperation with AEC, and we maintain the current configurations of their network security components.
