Galen Healthcare uses a solution called Securelink to allow us to connect, maintain, upgrade and monitor your servers.

Installing Securelink on your network is a two step process: Once these two steps are complete, Galen will be able to securely access your machines without the need for additional VPN software or proprietary clients. Here is a detailed description of the two steps:

  1. Activate Gatekeeper user account
  2. Install the Securelink Gatekeeper software.

If you encounter any problems along the way, you can contact your Galen resource or by email at
