Cybellum, provider of the Product Security Platform for connected product and device manufacturers, unveiled a new Product Incident Response module to help Product Security Incident Response Teams (PSIRT) to monitor and investigate threats related to devices that are already in operational use in the field, including in the medical device space.

Enhanced workflow automation gives PSIRT team members control over their assets and automation of processes, as opposed to the manual and tedious processes they currently have in place.

Amid Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the new PSIRT module and automated workflow capabilities will be highlighted in an upcoming briefing entitled: Securing Connected Devices in the Field October 26.

As cyberattacks are on the rise across the globe in medical device industries, manufacturers and asset owners are exposed to revenue loss, brand damage, and regulatory violations if they don’t rapidly respond to security incidents. They are challenged with being able to effectively gather and analyze threat intelligence, continuously monitor their devices for threats, speed up impact and relevance assessments and facilitate incident investigation, resolution, and reporting.

Key capabilities of Cybellum’s new PSIRT module includes the ability to:

  • Create policies, processes and guidelines for the triage, continuous threat monitoring, analysis, and remediation of assets
  • Aggregate vulnerability and threat intelligence from multiple sources
  • Automate security intelligence and triage, monitoring assets for impact of vulnerabilities
  • Open and manage incident investigations and generate reports

“Connected devices are the new frontier for cyberattacks as proven by the many recent and highly visible attacks that have occurred,” says Eran Rosenberg, VP of products and strategy at Cybellum. “Beyond meeting regulatory guidelines, PSIRTs must be able to continuously monitor vulnerabilities to enable timely incident response. If not caught early enough, cybersecurity attacks on connected devices can put users at risk and may cause significant loss of revenue and brand damage to the manufacturer.”
