Windows 2016 Server Release
Enhances RALS System Security!
Keeping patient data secure is a never ending task. Hospitals and health systems constantly face increasing regulation for protecting the security of patient health information; yet, data breaches remain common in the industry.
As health system leaders make data security a priority, so do we at RALS.
As Microsoft prepares to officially end its support for Windows Server 2008 R2 editions, we at RALS want to stay ahead of the January 14, 2020 end-of-life date and begin migrating users to our Windows 2016 Server platform.
Windows 2016 Server will:
- Provide our users with a platform that meets or exceeds the security requests of most institutions
- Mitigate the majority of security vulnerabilities found in the risk-focused security approach developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs).
The result makes RALS the most secure point-of-care data management system available today. Our project management team will work with you every step of the way to make this a smooth transition.
To gain this level of security, there are steps:
STEP 1: RALS Version must be 5.17 or higher
Not sure what version of RALS you are using?
- Look on the bottom of the splash screen when you log in, or on any RALS page, click ‘Help’ and then click ‘About RALS System’.
STEP 2: Upgrade your RALS Interface to your LIS
- This technology upgrade will allow the execution of the RALS connectivity system setup on Windows 2016.
STEP 3: Swap your Windows 2008 Server for a Windows 2016 Server
- Project managers will work with you to schedule the swap of your Windows 2008 to Windows 2016 servers.
