Optiv, a leader in cyber advisory and solutions, has won the “Best Overall Healthcare Cybersecurity Solution” award in the 2023 MedTech Breakthrough Awards. The annual awards program is devoted to honoring excellence in medical and health-related technology companies, products, services, and people.

“Today, the healthcare industry faces a confluence of challenges—from rising attacks and expanding threat surfaces, to staffing shortages and budget cuts—that, if left unmanaged, can introduce significant security risks, including to patient life,” says Jason Lewkowicz, Optiv’s chief services officer. “Optiv understands the unique challenges of the healthcare industry, partnering with organizations on their journey to cyber resiliency.”

Optiv was recognized out of more than 4,200 award submissions for its work serving 64% of the Fortune 500 healthcare firms, including more than 200 hospital organizations as clinical clients, and employing more than 150 consultants with healthcare experience.

Optiv’s team works in the trenches with healthcare clients to implement and manage end-to-end security programs founded on staples such as identity maturity and credential management, HIPAA compliance, endpoint detection and response, threat monitoring, device security management, data governance, data protection, third-party risk management, and segmentation and network design. Optiv also offers security strategy assessments, HIPAA security assessments, and internet of medical things (IoMT) security services.
