The challenge

Lack of affordable healthcare solutions

As a company working closely with the NHS, our client spotted a need for easier reporting on healthcare data security. The company aimed to develop the first software designed specifically to report on NHS cyber alerts (formerly called CareCERT).


Ensuring the resulting product was cost-effective and efficient was an absolute priority for the client to market to the NHS. And because the NHS holds sensitive data for millions of people, data security was also paramount.


The tech company’s criteria for the new product were:


  • affordability for the cash-strapped NHS
  • visually appealing dashboards
  • suitable for non-technical users
  • presenting meaningful charts and metrics


However, the tech company lacked the necessary experience in custom reporting software. This led the company on a search for a qualified development partner.

The solution

Innovative cyber security solution

The company’s search for a healthcare portal development solution led to Influential Software. With 30 years’ experience in business intelligence and software development, our skills matched the requirement.


The brief in this project was to develop a platform that could scan an entire network from a central server. The software then had to compare the results with a list of industry-standard security vulnerabilities.


Over time, the client extended the brief to include scanning single devices and a version for personal home use.


Making the resulting product affordable for different NHS trusts was a priority. But the client also needed to ensure the software was easy to navigate for non-technical NHS employees. For this reason we ensured the software had a visually appealing dashboard that displayed easy-to-understand metrics. We also established secure connectivity between on-premise and cloud applications. 

The benefits

Identifying security risks

The core benefit of the portal solution was increased security and data integrity for all trusts under the NHS. The technology became a fundamental way to increase the visibility of a company’s network and highlight areas most vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Furthermore, the resulting product was affordable, effective, and commercially viable.
