Healthcare cybersecurity provider CyberMDX announced its Healthcare Security Suite solution is getting a 5.0 release, that will include a selection of new updates.

CyberMDX’s Healthcare Security Suite 5.0 release includes a new set of features to help HDOs gain more insight into the current state of their organizational risks. This includes:

  • Customizable views that highlight new assets or vulnerabilities discovered in the past 14 days, break down new vulnerabilities or assets discovered by category and risk level, and prioritize in order of criticality
  • Industry Benchmark Reports that generate real-time scores, measuring the level of patient safety, care delivery, and data confidentiality of the individual organization against industry average to identify asset groups of greatest risk
  • Executive level reports on the overall security posture of the organization, outlining current risks versus resolved risk trends over time
  • New features to alert HDOs about connected medical and IoT devices with unauthorized communications to forbidden countries

Alongside the updates, CyberMDX is introducing two new usage tiers to ensure healthcare organizations have access to IoT and Medical Device Security: a Freemium Edition and a Basic Edition.

CyberMDX’s Freemium Edition of its solution is a free, single-user edition, centered on risk visibility that enables IT Security or Biomedical professionals to gain immediate access to a view of their IoT and medical device inventory.

Meanwhile, the basic edition offering provides five licenses for teams to access a live and continuous device inventory. The offering automatically tags assets, provides asset level threat analysis, as well as basic early detection and response capabilities.

A recent Ipsos report from CyberMDX and Philips uncovered that while 48% of hospitals surveyed had reported an externally motivated shutdown in the preceding 6 months, only 11% have cybersecurity as a high priority spend. Indeed, despite the critical rise in attacks and breaches, 60-75% of hospitals have “other” spending priorities and many lack the funding to prioritize security above other needs.

“Visibility of what you need to protect is a necessary building block for cybersecurity. Our research, however, has shown that almost half of all hospitals are still using manual processes to track devices across their networks, leading to largely inaccurate results,” says Azi Cohen, CEO of CyberMDX. “The new versions that we have introduced ensure that regardless of size or budget, healthcare organizations that need help now can at least gain the basic network visibility they require to move towards advanced healthcare security.”

“The threats to our security are changing faster than ever, and our capabilities must keep pace with the rate of evolution,” says Nir Ilani, SVP of product at CyberMDX. “Our new features are designed to arm all departments of the healthcare organization, whether it’s IT, Biomed, or senior management, with insight into their overall security posture, as well as granular breakdowns of threats. With the ubiquity of attacks against healthcare, the ability to action security, not just see what’s there, is an absolute must.”
