Cynerio, provider of medical device and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) security solutions announced Tuesday that they are now certified as a Cisco partner, having developed an integration with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) to protect patient safety by securing medical devices.
Healthcare organizations can enhance their ISE existing infrastructure with Cynerio’s healthcare-driven behavior analysis platform to gain a better understanding of the risk type and priority for each connected medical device to enforce access policies that ensure normal clinical communication flows while blocking malicious communications that can threaten patient safety.
Based on the industry’s initial technology that thoroughly analyzes the medical workflows in the IoMT ecosystem, Cynerio provides an ongoing healthcare specific risk analysis, that accurately detects anomalies and stops threats to prevent service disruption, data theft and compliance violations.
Cynerio’s medical cybersecurity solution provides continuous discovery and classification of connected medical and IoT devices, visibility into the associated risk for each connected device with clinical context, and protection against cyber-attacks without interfering with clinical workflows.
Cyberattacks can not only result in data breaches but they can also disrupt communications and interfere with treatments putting patients’ health at risk. Connected medical and IoT devices that were not designed with security in mind, serve as an easy gateway for malware and hackers to infiltrate hospital systems.
“Healthcare organizations continue to be bombarded with cyberattacks, and the problem will only escalate with the highly publicized payoffs to hackers in response to ransomware attacks,” said Leon Lerman, Cynerio CEO. “This partnership with Cisco enables healthcare organizations to protect their weakest link – the connected medical devices and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT).”
