It is commonly understood that the recent UK hacking situation in the NHS, was via its connected machinery, rather than direct into the hospital servers. We focus on what’s up at the forthcoming conference in San Francisco, with this timely announcement from Tel Aviv based company Cynerio, who today announced its mission to protect the future of healthcare by focusing on its weakest link – the connected medical device ecosystem.
What they say is, by building a tailor-made solution for healthcare providers, they deliver complete visibility into a healthcare organization’s medical device ecosystem, protecting it from cyber threats and helping the organization meet HIPAA regulatory requirements.
The company was founded by cybersecurity experts Leon Lerman, CEO, and Daniel Brodie, CTO, to deliver a cybersecurity solution specially designed for healthcare providers, based on the industry’s first technology that combines device behavior modeling with medical workflow analysis to provide full visibility into medical device behavior and activity on the network, accurately detect anomalies with deep understanding of the medical context and stop the threat to ensure patient safety and data protection.
“Connected medical devices are delivering a new level of patient care, but present new challenges of managing and securing the growing clinical ecosystem. For attackers, medical devices are easy targets, as the devices aren’t built with security in mind and healthcare security teams have limited ability to protect these devices with traditional IT security solutions that are more focused on standard platforms. Our technology offers a comprehensive solution, purposely built to protect the medical device ecosystem and their sensitive data,” explained Lerman.
