Cybersecurity solutions company Illumio and Cylera, a provider in medical device (IoMT) and enterprise OT cybersecurity, unveiled an integrated solution for healthcare providers that is designed to reduce the risk of catastrophic breaches and ransomware attacks.

By combining Illumio’s IT network map with Cylera’s medical device map and vulnerability analysis in a single view, healthcare providers can gain a holistic picture of risks and take immediate steps to apply segmentation within and between the two types of networks. The new solution is also designed to accelerate the path to Zero Trust security adoption for healthcare providers globally.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center (HC3) recently warned U.S. healthcare providers that cyberattacks could soon increase in response to geopolitics. Meanwhile, the attack surface in healthcare continues to dramatically expand as medical devices and IT systems become more hyperconnected than ever.

Cylera’s asset centric security platform can identify, assess, and mitigate risks of connected medical, IoT, and OT devices across healthcare networks. Cylera’s network and agentless approach allows for monitoring of all connected devices without impacting operations or services. The “digital twin” approach leads to accurate asset inventories, superior risk analysis, highly enriched threat intelligence about the devices, and shortens the time it takes for IT security teams to mitigate risks.

“With ransomware attacks on healthcare providers on the rise, Cylera’s integration with Illumio is essential to help our customers see and mitigate their risks,” says Timur Ozekcin, co-founder & CEO of Cylera. “The integration of Cylera’s asset centric security platform with Illumio’s Zero Trust Segmentation shows how technologies from two industry leaders can dramatically complement each other to give healthcare providers the unified visibility and control they need.”

Illumio ransomware mitigation and Zero Trust Segmentation solutions stop lateral movement and contain breaches before they spread and become catastrophic.

“It has never been more urgent for healthcare providers to improve cybersecurity and adopt a Zero Trust Segmentation approach in order to stop breaches and ransomware from spreading into cyber disasters,” says Joel Bauman, senior vice president of corporate and business development at Illumio. “The Illumio integrated solution with Cylera gives healthcare organizations an easy way to both see and detect threats in IT, OT, and medical IoT environments and to rapidly isolate those breaches before they cause significant damage.”
