The Business Intelligence Group announced that CyberMDX – a Forescout company, a provider in automated cybersecurity, won the 2022 Fortress Cyber Security Awards in the Leadership category. The industry awards program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers.
Forescout, which acquired CyberMDX earlier this year, delivers continuous automated cybersecurity across IT, OT, IoT, and IoMT assets through its cloud-based Forescout Continuum Platform. By acquiring CyberMDX, Forescout expands upon its medical device security dedicated to protecting the quality care of health delivery worldwide.
Its new healthcare security suite provides asset visibility, network threat prevention, and operational analytics to IT, OT, IoT and IoMT connected devices. The solution also helps customers identify asset vulnerabilities, so they can quickly remediate the assets and prevent cyber incidents. The solution is also designed to integrate with customers’ existing environments.
“Joining Forescout enabled us to expand our ability to protect the things that protect human lives,” says Azi Cohen, former CEO at CyberMDX and now leading IoMT technology at Forescout. “With the surge in attacks on healthcare providers during the pandemic we focused on ways to give them more immediate and easily accessible help that spans their medical assets as well as traditional IT infrastructures. We innovated to deliver actionable choices to mitigate risks that were automated in the product. The team worked very hard to get that to market quickly so it’s especially satisfying to get this recognition.”
For healthcare organizations in today’s environment, maintaining an organization’s security framework is of the utmost importance. CyberMDX’s Healthcare Security Suite on the Continuum Platform supports its customers’ security frameworks by automating the continuous discovery, assessment, and governance of all connected cyber assets to mitigate risk and drive business automation and efficiency.
“We are so proud to name Forescout’s CyberMDX as a winner in the 2022 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” says Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Forescout are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
