NHS Secure Boundary

To support health and care organisations to secure the NHS perimeter, NHS Digital’s Data Security Centre (DSC) has launched its NHS perimeter security project, known as NHS Secure Boundary.

As the NHS continues its ambitious digital transformation, there is an increasing need to ensure that patient data, clinical services and applications are continuously available, wholly trusted, and robustly secure. A part of this is protecting, defending, and securing the ever-expanding digital perimeter of the NHS.

Our NHS Secure Boundary solution

NHS Secure Boundary provides a perimeter security solution which offers protection against the most sophisticated security threats for NHS organisations. This solution is part of a larger programme of work being delivered by NHS Digital’s DSC to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of patient data, as well as protecting clinical and business systems from emerging threats.

This solution is at the forefront of protecting internet traffic from digital and cloud-based threats, through next generation firewall (NGFW) and web application firewall (WAF) protection.
